Lovely food and great service. Water on the tables is filtered (always a plus for me). Also one of the few places open at 9am on a Sunday morning. Obviously popular with the locals as it was humming when we were there.

The thing that makes this cafe good is the menu which has items that differ from normal. I had a delicious chicken waffle that was crispy and spiced just right. My husbands mince on toast was really flavourful

The Buddha Bowl is a healthy and tasty vegan meal and the kale and corn fritters are very nice. Their chocolate brownies are delicious heated up and have a gooey centre.

Went to Elixir for breakfast before leaving New Plymouth. The food was amazing. The Raspberry bread was to die for and they put the right amount of hollandaise on my eggs benedict. For a little café, it was really busy and the staff were friendly....More
