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

Loved the food and the service was excellent. Great variety on the menu for both food and drink. Lovely outdoor patio area. Reminds me of the coffee shops in Australia and New Zealand. Much self service but a little bit of hired help around to bus tables and deliver food. Would love to go back.
