Very good food and nice atmosphere

As a vegan/vegetarian it is very nice to go to a good restaurant where all the menu is available to you to choose from. The appetizers we had were both delicious -- one was a bread with goat cheese and a sweet syrup and the other a good salad. For entrees we had a risotto and a tagine plate. Both... read more

A small, but trendy vegetarian/vegan restaurant. The food and service was excellent. Only wish is that they had more than one vegan dessert.

The food at Elf woke up my taste buds! Each member of our party had a different dish and they were all worth eating.

The best mushrooms risotto I have ever tried. Is not placed in the best zone, but it doesn't care when you get inside.

To limit this place to a restrictive title of a 'vegetarian' food, is unfair.Simple and soulful vegetarian food is extremely tough to make, but the Elf cafe gets it right. The service was very attentive( no fake smiles!) and graceful. This is a small and cozy place but that's probably what makes the food consistent. All of the courses were... More

This place is AMAZING. The food is a foodies dream. Interesting complex flavors, great combinations and all beautifully served. I had the Rosewater Lemonade (YUM!!!) to drink. We started with the spicy Kale Salad which was to die for - until we got the beets and fennel. Then my taste buds really exploded - so perfectly prepared. Ended with the... More

The portions were generous and the ingredients... More

vegetarian food should not be smothered in cheese, cream or butter. kale salad was the best. id go back for lunch, but not dinner, we couldn't sit or eat comfortably.

My wife took me here for my Birthday as she knows I have difficulty finding nice vegetarian food near us. Firstly the food is great, exectional even. The reason for my perhaps low rating is for a couple of things. The place is small, we made reservations on a Thu night and lucky we did, the place was packed. The... More
