Located directly across the street from where we lodged, a perfect little place for delicious breakfast and coffee. I had the spicy sausage sandwich on Texas toast, and my husband had the spinach and egg sandwich on croissant .... so good, friendly service, what more could you want?

Reasonable prices with delicious pastries and breakfast dishes. Service is o.k. and it can be quite crowded waiting to order since it's a small space but the outdoor seating is lovely and a fun spot to people watch.

Excellent food for people on the "go". Many folks bike in or stop by during a surfing excursion. The patio is large with many tables; all the seating is outside.

Right accross the street from The Wonderful Carlsbad Inn Beach and resort, you will find Cafe Elysa. Very charming with indoor and outdoor sitting as well as fire pits to keep warm in a cold morning. All fresh ingredients, great breakfast items, coffee and sandwiches, perfect way to start the day!

Pretty much once we found this gem breakfast was all set. It does do sandwiches but we never tried it for lunch. Every morning I headed over for fresh out of the oven croissants. We had a full breakfast there as well that was wonderful. Great find.

Not only coffee but wonderful pastries. Just across the street from the hotel. Love this spot. You can sit by the fire pit and relax. Kids love it too.

This café is a breakfast must if you are looking for some local flair and flavor. The menu is excellent and the food is great for a fair price.

We have visited this place for the past several years when we are in town. The coffee is way better than the 2 chain restaurants in the area. It can be very busy in the morning but that gives you time to chat it up with people. Everyone is so friendly. It's definitely not the cleanest place but the quality... More
