“Great Food & Ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I have been visiting this little cafe in the Main Street of Healesville with friends for a number of years now. I've experienced the Eludae, breakfasts, lunches and dinners and truly, this little cafe is all heart with fresh produce, excellent value for money, plenty on your plate and a wonderful ambiance. There's a variety of fresh cakes as well. If you like your coffee a little strong, ask for a shot and a half....that's the trick. The service is wonderful and what makes this little cafe special is that 'they actually listen'. My rating is 5*****. Keep up the great work Eludae.
Thank you,
Sue

“Best Risotto!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

My boyfriend & I popped in on our way through for dinner one night, and ordered the vegetarian risotto - it was THE BEST risotto we had ever tasted!! <3 The service was great, the food came out quickly, I couldn't finish my risotto because it was so big - so great value for money. At the end of the night when we went to pay, we also bought a packet of fudge that they were selling on the counter - it was so good!! They do well for such a tiny place :-) Can't wait to come back!

“Not flash but honest food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Pretty impressed by this cafe which resides in what used to be a drycleaners shop. The decor needs updating but the food arrived quickly, was fresh and honest and good value. Many options for vegetarians should put this on the list for any non meat eaters visiting town. We found the coffee average but quite acceptable. Will visit again.

“Good food with options for all tastes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Another visit to Eludae with friends. All tastes were catered for including vegetarian and fructose intolerant. The servings of mains are large so you had better be hungry. The garlic tiger prawns as an entree were very tasty with just the right amount of garlic though I would have preferred it less creamy. The risottos were all voted as excellent and the lamb shanks were also rated as very good. The service was good and prompt. A good selection of drinks and desserts topped off a great meal.
This is a popular local restaurant and they cater for take away as well.
