“Coffee is brewed to order”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Most coffee shops brew the coffee in large carafes and there is no telling how long it has sat waiting to be served.

Elements brews each order and this may mean you have to be patient while the coffee is prepared. Sit, rest, talk to the brewmeister, and others in the cafe. Or simply sit back and read a book, linger, as there are times that rushing and speed are unimportant.

The end result is superb coffee.

“Great local coffee place”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Located in easy parking location in Old Town Camarillo. Inside and outside seating. Friendly owner (Mike) and great product. This place is a couple miles east of Outlet Mall, but a nice place to stop on way back to LA. It is a couple hundred yards from the freeway onramp.

“Best coffee around, bar none.”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

Element is not really a restaurant - though I do love the option to get cereal in a big Fold-O-Pak - but a spectacular coffee bar. The quality of the latte art, rows of ceramic conical single-cup filters and numerous pieces of equipment dedicated to making the perfect cup of coffee result in a place that is as good or better than the best that Rome, Paris, Los Angeles and Seattle have to offer. Also fantastic, as well as a fantastic value, are the various high quality teas served in heavy iron tea pots. It also helps that they have really fast internet. It will be great when they can extend their hours a bit.

“Delish Strong Coffee”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

I like this cafe. Coffee ,tea, pastries,cereal.Personal, friendly and a fav of locals.I get my coffee here when I need a strong coffee to be ready and awake for work. NOTE: do not mention the S****bucks word here.These guys are purist coffee drinkers. Its a local hang out, people come for computer work, business meets, and yapping friends. There is local artwork displayed on the walls, in this small modern cafe.If in the mood, ask for crayons and paper and draw while you sip a flavorful ..pure strong coffee.Sometimes they have musicians in for some nice informal entertainment.They also have just about every kind of cereal (which I think is cool and homey) to choose from. Friendly, Camarillo nice neighborhood atmosphere..check it out :).
