Spent a lovely evening here celebrating a relatives birthday. Booked whole café, although it felt more like a top quality restaurant than cafe. Staff smart & friendly, very efficient, yet somehow remained in the background, excellent. Food terrific, certainly recommend.

This Mothers day the cafe was fully reserved. Shame they didn't know what times tables might be used as us early birds were forbidden to sit inside as ALL tables were reserved permanently. The staff were going about their tasks - no idea what - but studiously ignoring us until I somewhat pushed in to ask if we could have... More

We came here for a lunch a couple of weeks ago after a morning out and about. The food was very tasty, and there is a little area of things for our small child to do to keep her entertained. The menu is quite interesting - plenty for lunch, and there were lots of people turning up so we were... More

I hosted our office Xmas party with Cafe Elvira. As I wanted a Danish theme / food, they were an ideal choice. Food was no less than excellent and the schnapps flowed at a perfect tempo. There was (consequently!) a lot of love in the room and we had a hygge time! If you want to discover why Danes are... More

I have visited Elvira several times before today and have always liked the ambience and relaxed atmosphere. 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
