“Good honest cafe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

Nothing special or upmarket about the menu, but nice food and good servings. If you're after something a little special this isn't for you, but if you're after good cafe food then Elies is the one. Great service.

“Service with a snarl.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

If you like to be greeted by a smiling waitress, enjoy your food hot and on time and appreciate good value for money then don’t come here. I have been disappointed every time I go. The café itself is quite nice and the food OK but the staff are very unfriendly and slow. I have given them the benefit of the doubt before but it is always the same. Even as we left this time there was someone complaining (quite rightly, it seemed) about being over charged $14 and getting a very surly response.
Needs some serious whipping into shape in terms of service and attitude.
