Turtle Cafe is the place to go on those cold mornings. The atmosphere welcomes you with the aroma of coffee.

We were warmly greeted, seated and had our coffee orders taken. The coffee came hot and very much to my liking. The young lass who served us was happy and smiling and very engaged. Such a delight to have coffee here.

Been here quite a few times and it's always my favourite breakfast in Elwood by far. My favourite is the sweetcorn fritters with avocado, poached egg and salsa verde. Coffee is great too and service has always been on point too.

A friend and I dropped into the Turtle Cafe last weekend for a brunch we thoroughly enjoyed. The coffee and food were delicious and the service excellent. I savored every morsel of the smashed avocado with a poached egg, and my friend loved the very...More
