On Day 5 of our tour we were desperate for a decent cafe latte, but we found it here after we visited the Botanical Gardens. They also had free WiFi so wanted to drop you a note to say keep up the great work.

Only stayed a few days in Ella but this place was part of my morning ritual. A really well sized, tasty, and decently priced latte to go. Staff was always quick and courteous. Now I’ve moved on and am really sad and caffeine depraved :(
