Today was no different, I had booked a table to take an old friend to lunch, we had lots to catch up on and took a leisurely time over our lunch. The fresh garden flowers on the tables and lighted candles all add... More

Both the summer fruit pudding and the Brie and cranberry baguette were delicious But... The toilets were really off- putting .very badly maintained - Dirty floors and tiles and really rundown appearance - so much so that it would put us off returning. Service also very slow . The place was really busy but then staffing should take that into... More

I usually meet my boss here for breakfast/lunch here once a month. The ladies are always happy for me to open a tab and pay at the end, which is helpful. The food is good; last time i ordered scrambled eggs and toast. For lunch i had the goats cheese/feta tart....both delicious choices. Recently my only let down has been... More

We have been talking about our experience at Cafe Elvira all evening after having a delicious lunch there today. We've eaten out quite a few times this summer and for both of us, the food at Cafe Elvira was the best we've had this summer. The pastry on both the tart and the pie we ordered was exceptional.
