Recommended by a friends and very happy they did. There is something special about a coffee shop that offers a large variety of coffees. They had a whiskey barrel roast that I highly recommend.

Books and coffee houses are prefect together. Elements is a delight. Reading, great coffee, good nibbles, and even wifi and comfy chairs. If I lived in Biddeford I would visit nearly every day, particularly in the winter when the ocean is "closed for maintenance." If...More

The books are new or remaindered and there are plenty of tables and chairs and comfy seating to while away the hours! You can also purchase coffee by the pound or even beer. A happening place!

I was very intrigued by Elements, stopped by to check out the books and the overall scene. Sat at their little counter/bar and had a bowl of the sweet potato corn chowder, which was delicious, with a slice of bakery-made sourdough bread. Also had a...More

There's plenty to love about this place. Not only is it a lively bookstore with plenty to see and plenty of seating, but they serve great coffee and baked goods. (I haven't tried the beers yet. Maybe next time.)
