Ellena makes the best butter tarts ever but all of her sweets and savouries are second to none. Great kitchen gifts available too...and I love the assortments of imported chocolares!

Food is fresh and the old building space is full of wonderful kitchen items and ingredients. We had a Red Pepper soup that was full of flavour and a quiche that was light and fluffy. Their sandwiches are on fresh breads.

an excellent choice of eatery for good soup, sandwiches and deserts. Very relaxed atmosphere. What we liked also was that our group of friends did not have to shout as it is quiet.

My friend and I have met for lunch at Ellena's Cafe on three occasions now. I've tried three different sandwiches, all delicious. The soup of the day has also been delicious. Their coffee is great and I rarely have dessert but their lovely homemade cookies...More

I just had an early lunch/brunch at Ellena's Cafe. I like the friendly low key atmosphere when you enter - place your order grab a drink at the beverage bar and find a seat of your choice. Help yourself to a bottle of cold water...More
