Say Hola to Yaya Chica
Yaya Chica is the latest dining option located in the ever-evolving art deco building just across the street from Windsor Station.

Yaya Chica is located just across the street from Winsdor train station on Chapel St.


Offering a Spanish-inspired menu, you'll find a decent array of options for breakfast as well as a tapas style menu for dinner.

We popped in to check it out for breakfast while it was a bit quieter on a sleepy Sunday morning to pleasantly discover the breakfast menu offering more than the typical breakfast options of eggs and toast or toast and eggs.

Yaya Chica serves up Toby's Estate coffee which is great news for those who are coffee aficionados.

Perfect for kickstarting your morning, Yaya Chica serves Toby's Estate coffee.


I tried the Bacon and Cheese Toasty with caramelised onions and certainly wasn't disappointed. The onions were sweet and they were cooked with chilli giving it a fiery kick. It's a great choice if you're the type that enjoys spicey food. The melted Gruyere chese on the top was perfectly melted (with just a little browning on top) and not at all oily. Matched with a side of bacon, this was a treat for something a little bit out of the norm.

The bacon and cheese toasty with caramelised onions and chilli was just the right amount of spice.


My dining partner enjoyed the porridge which was absolutely full of apple and sultanas, making for a very filling breakfast.

The service was friendly and while we weren't able to try out the tapas menu, it was certainly encouraging enough for us to come back and try it another time.

Rumour has it, there's even a rooftop that offers some pretty amazing views in the evening!
