Whether you sit inside or out the Elk & Finch presents an enjoyable break in life. The staff are friendly and attentive, the menu varied, and the coffees good. Try the Caesar salad but be ready for a full-on garlic experience. Mighty fine!

Excellent food. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. We sat out on the front balcony and watched the sun go down while having appetizers. Then moved inside for the main course - special was surf (shrimp and scallops) and turf . Delicious!

The old house that the business operates out of provides a nice setting to sit and enjoy a coffee or tea, with a snack. The service is hit and miss, depending on who is working.

We stopped here for a coffee break. The pub is an old house which made it feel cozy. They have a lunch and dinner menu as well. Great service.

Wow.....what a wonderful experience ! These guys have IT figured out. Second time for dinner this season. We loved all of our mains and in house smoked salmon app was incredible. Desert and house blend coffee was great as well. We will be back soon.

We have had lunch here numerous times through the years. The food is always good - it seems made from scratch and the desserts are yummy. However, they really need to improve their service. Today we got our menus promptly but waited too long while...More
