Went there for lunch. We were seated promptly by who in think was the owner. The place was fairly busy, but the three servers weren't run off their feet and the cafe is small. The waitress came by to take our drink order and also promised to bring back menus. Standard operating procedure should have been leaving them with us... More

My family was visiting Elora and planned a lunch at the Uptown Cafe based on TripAdvisor reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch - quiche, panini and homemade tomato soup. Yummy. Our waitress was convinced we had been there before which was odd, but overall a nice luncheon spot.

I took my grandma to lunch here for her birthday - it had good reviews both online and from friends, and I'd heard they had good quiche (my grandma's favourite!) The Uptown Cafe stood up to its fine reputation. We had a lovely meal, the service was great, the food was tasty and nice portion sizes - not too big... More

We just popped into Uptown cafe in Elora on Sunday afternoon to try the tea and scones that we had heard about from friends. I don't see it on this menu, or on their website, but I can say that finally I have had tea and scones just the way I like them, when I was least expecting it. It... More

Hi Thanks for your very generous review of our Cafe. We are proud of our afternoon teas which we try and make as close to a traditional English Tea as possible. The recipe we use for our scones is the same as we used when we lived in the UK. Thanks again and I hope we see you again the... More

We visit the place on a Sunday for lunch. We came two families with 5 kids. The kids menu was good, had few options and came with drink and cookie. The waitress was very pleasant and the food came relatively fast. I ordered the grilled veggie wrap which came with a salad and was amazing. We ordered a quiche and... More

My partner and I stumbled upon this cafe for lunch while visiting the gem of a town that is Elora. I had a delicious and substantial Greek salad and he had the Farmer's breakfast. Both were very enjoyable. Service was quick, friendly and efficient and the prices were very reasonable. We especially loved the iced coffee! Would highly recommend this... More

Thankyou for your great review of our little Cafe. We really appreciate all the positive comments we receive for our food and service. Running a small business these days, especially a restaurant when there is so much competition is not an easy thing but good reviews like yours shows that we're doing OK. More

My friend and I ate here after visiting the annual Elora antique market, so the owner had almost none of the menu items available since it had been so busy! They were actually closed but accommodated us with what they had and very friendly. The space is nothing fancy, kinda country casual, but inexpensive. I had a substantial potato-leek soup... More

As we went off season, it was one of the few places open. I'm glad the others were closed because this place was a treat. Great lunch, fab cakes, good service. And good prices! Definitely recommend.

We intended only midafternoon coffee and dessert but ended up eating more because we felt so comfortable! As well, they were on the verge of closing and we were the only ones there, but the owner/hostess was so nice and accommodating that we wanted to spend more money! So we ended up with quiche and salad and veggie wrap (came... More
