Very casual, easy going cafe with an interesting menu. Seared salmon with pumpkin, mint salad which was fresh, light and full of flavour, eggs florentine eggs perfectly done. A case of delectable cakes and desserts to finish off the meal. Very buzzy but not on top of each other.

Lots of seating and delicious food options. Usually have to remind the serving staff what you have ordered, and usually have to add my drinks to the bill at the end. All in all certainly worth a visit

The food and coffee at this café is always delicious. There is a good range of counter food as well as a comprehensive menu. It is child friendly and there are plenty of tables. The staff can be friendly but I have found them often to be very sullen. Disappointing as it could be a better experience.

I no longer live in Wellington but whenever I visit, I always go back to this cafe. Brunch being one of my favourite meals, this place is outstanding at it. The potato and bacon 'hash' is a must try! So is the coconut bread. I love this cafe and each time I return to Welly, I hope to visit it.... More

From coffee or a wine with friends to a special dinner or bunch for Mothers Day (my most recent visit) Elements delivers consistently good food and service. The menu offer not just your standard cafe fare but something a little different like the banana bread with berries rather than the usual pancake stack. My nephew tried it and loved it... More

having been to Elements a number of times its really a go-to place for a quick brunch or dinner, the food is wonderful and all ways consistent. The only downfall is the coffee but i would rather a bad coffee and excellent food anyday. The is a sure-fire everytime.

Our main waitress appeared pretty peeved before she even 'greeted' us. No smile, no pleases and thank yous, and obvious annoyance when we weren't ready to order a few minutes after receiving menus. Another waitress delivered coffees by leaning right across the middle of the table. In the hour or so we were there I saw at least three staff... More

I have been a huge fan of this café and have visited it regularly when in Wellington. However, on a recent visit in January, I was disappointed by the two meals I had here. I think more attention needs to be paid to the quality of the meal and the wait staff need some extra training. Unlike other reviewers I... More

When in Wellington I often catch the bus over to Lyall Bay to stroll on the beach, and to eat at Elements Cafe. Love the food, specially the lambs fry and there are lots of yummy sweet treats to enjoy with coffee. The wait staff are very attentive, although I have to mention that the Restaurant Manager is not particularly... More
