Greek Bouzouki night at Mambo Cafe, Cleveland



One of many hidden gems in Cleveland, QLD is the Mambo Cafe. Located on Bloomfield Street in the Cleveland House arcade. I had been fasting for a blood test and came out of Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology with a craving for coffee and something sweet. My nose directed me inside Mambo Cafe and the amazing coffee aroma. 

I talked to Helen, the owner, and she directed me to some gluten-free almond flour-based greek biscuits and handed me an amazing mocha (coffee with hot chocolate) and I was in love.

Lucky for me I pass by Mambo Cafe on a regular basis and I have returned for more sweet treats. I have also taken friends to meet Helen and experience her amazingly authentic Greek foods including:

  • Antipasto tray
  • Spanakopita
  • Calamari
  • Octopus
  • Parmesen Mushroom
  • Dolmades
  • Lamb Balls
  • Moussaka
  • Souvlaki
  • Stuffed tomatoes

Desserts:
  • Baklava
  • Galaktoboureko
  • Honey Tart

Below are some of the images taken on this amazing night. Please click on the video for the bouzuoki (greek music) experience.
