Unexpected rain put an early end to the days exploring and so comfort was sought with tea and cake in a deserted and still Chard. Luckily we spotted the cafe was open and with only one table spare (due to the tightly observed Covid restrictions)...we were most fortunate. Delicious tea and cakes followed and we counted ourselves blessed to find the venue open and serving such a wonderful variety of cakes and teas.More

Very friendly & welcoming staff, positively engaged with making sure customers are safe with Covid QR code scan on entrance and thorough cleaning of tables & seats that we witnessed when visiting. Its great to support an independent, especially with a Costa Coffee camped virtually...on their doorstep (I wonder who arrived first?!). Our only criticism is the interior decor - its a bit of a muddle, dated in parts and not conducive to the warmth the staff make you feel here. Desperately needs a revamp in our view.More

Called in today for coffees and the best ever cherry shortbreads. Excellent Covid 19 precautions and we felt totally safe. Good to visit a small independent cafe and support them in these difficult times.

Polite greeter at door managing the customers for available tables/ take-aways. Less tables than normal due to Covid, but still a nice atmosphere. Now making more use of upstairs seating, rather than downstairs which seems mostly set out for orders/ payments. Pleasant room with comfy...seating, good service and great coffee. A relaxed place to chill out! One of the best places for miles around.More

The restaurant is amazing. It is by far the highlight of my 10 days visit to Istanbul. The food here is exquisite with a breathtaking balcony view only to make sure you have the right appetite for the very generous quantities of food. It may...be relatively on the more expensive half of restaurants here but it’s worth the investment. Generally if you’re ever here, I recommend giving it a try and meet the friendly staff and you’ll be super lucky if you have Oktay serve your table.More

Hi Nermeen, I wish we could take the credit for this lovely review but unfortunately you have accidentally selected the wrong location as we are based in the South West of England, UK. Kind regards, #teameleos 😊 🌈

This café is one of my favourites of all time. It’s family run, it’s friendly, and it’s a pillar of the community. Every single member of staff is lovely! I work in the area and celebrate my good days with an Eleos and commiserate my...bad days with an Eleos... it’s quite simply the best option! They use ethically sourced incredibly tasty coffee (worth a 30 min drive) and often host (pre-covid19) coffee cuppings to taste the assortments of different blends. Throughout COVID-19, all staff are taking relevant, thoughtful precautions and keeping everyone safe. You can relax and enjoy your time there knowing you’re well looked after.

Lovely restaurant, had lunch there several times. Covid measures in place but staff not wearing masks, accept greeter. Food delicious. Brilliant ethos of helping others and supporting the vulnerable.

Very limited menu, we had panini that were not fully cooked and very bland. No salad no garnish. Service was friendly but slow.
