Vaiola is a fabulous new cafe in tree-lined Tarragindi, offering delicious brunch, lunch and dinner fare. 

A sibling for neighbouring cafe, Umu Kitchen, Vaiola is nestled in the new luxury retirement community, The Green Tarragindi.

Overlooking the bowling greens on one side and a community garden and playground on the other, Vaiola welcomes all - offering a friendly neighbourhood space where patrons can enjoy excellent coffee supplied by Parallel Roasters, along with delicious meals, and a cheeky glass of wine or beer.
