Top choice in Lonely Planet for a reason, great place to be and atmosphare in the evenings. We enjoyed pretty okay drinks, local beer and good thin crust italian style pizza. Lunch the day after was decent, no whole wheat bread on their menus and the burger is average. Friendly young owner! Will visit again if in Ella.

We spent 3 days in Ella and went to Cafe Chill every day. This place does great breakfasts, smoothies, coffees, cocktails and also has great fast wifi! We got to know the staff who were all super friendly and helped them decide on their New Year's Eve menu (they gave us free samples and the food was excellent!). We spent... More

We came here several times during our stay in Ella. We tried the burgers, soup and chicken sandwich, all of which were really nice and freshly made. I'd definitely recommend the sandwich. On our final visit I had the Sri Lankan curry which was fantastic ! One of the best I've had. There is also a terrace upstairs which is... More

Good atmosphere but so busy we decided to cancel our order as we were waiting 45 mins and there was no sign of our food.

Yes, this is most likely the most popular place to hang out as tourist in Ella. It's been like this for years and Chill have expanded - a lot to allow for more customers. Now it's really crowded. Atmosphere is backpacker-ish. You can get all kinds of drinks and foods: Chinese, Western, Asian, Italian, even Sri Lankan. And that's the... More

We stayed in Ella for two nights and this is where you could find us in the evening. It has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The food is excellent and with an open kitchen in the back you know your food is being made in a clean kitchen. It gets quite busy after about 7 pm so get there... More
