Eccentrically-groomed men are the first of many quirky delights you'll find as you step in to this Richmond Café – the second being the authentic Greek ingredients on the menu.
Rose jam and orange blossom syrup accompany crispy semolina pancakes that are so sweet they sell like, er, hotcakes. Lokaniko sausage, beans and kasseri feature on the menu; the Wild Spanikopita is a local favourite and big plates of sharing salads encourage you to eat like the Greeks do – in good company, over a great conversation and with a glass of one of Demitri's wines (or ouzo!) in hand.
This is a great catch-up joint, ideal for small groups, but the slightly cramped Swan Street location means that there are no tables to seat more than four. It's best to come off-peak to ensure a table, but even when it's packed, this little café teems with ambience and authenticity – from the lovely (and enthusiastic) man who shows you to your seat, to the earthen wall tiles shrouded by citrus and olive trees in the back courtyard.
The lovely staff, joyful food and vibrant atmosphere at Demitri's Feast require you to bring only one thing – company.
