A quick note to observe that this venue has now changed hands and is no longer Uptown café. Will let you know how it rates once I try it out !

My wife and I dropped in to the Uptown Cafe for a light lunch before checking out the shops in Elora. We were pleasantly surprised with both the food and the service. Very friendly waitress/owner, chatted with her about England, turns out we live in the same area that she was from originally. Food was not gourmet but very good,... More

The service was good and friendly. The place was busy, always a good sign when eating somewhere new. The quiche with salad I had was delicious and I would definitely recommend the Uptown Cafe for lunch

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!)

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
