I absolutely loved elements when we went to isla. The fresh homemade bread was to die for and the jams that were served with it were too amazing for words. The breakfasts we tried were all amazing, from the fresh orange juice to the eggs, and I would definitely go back in a heart beat!

Loved the fresh-brewed coffee, the fresh-fruit plate, the egg dishes, the homemade bread and jams, while sitting outside on those sunny Isla mornings! Best breakfast we have found on the island, and this was our 3rd trip to Isla. Not pretentious, or expensive - just delicious food and wonderful people.

Elements is by far the BEST breakfast on the island! Fresh bread, marmalade made of banana, pineapple and coconut......delicious........food is outstanding, the personal service unmatched. It is off the main street, on Juarez, an unassuming little place, but so worth going to, get there early, it fills up fast! The menu will please anyone, the ingredients are fresh, including some from the owner's backyard! Do not miss Elements if you want a great experience!! The outdoor seating is lovely!

Elements of the Island - and the two handsome and engaging owners; Magicd and Jean - is by far one of the best (if not the best) places to eat. Fabulous homemade jams and breads alone would make this place incredible but the truth is everything is special here. Cozy and inviting, Elements of the Island rocks my world each and every time. (Where else could you get healthy scrambled eggs with chaya? Don't forget unbelievably delicious apfelstrudel).

No offense (to other restaurants) but Elements of the Island should be ranked higher on this list; much higher! Why? Because its been my go-to favorite place on Isla for breakfast (and great for lunch too) for the past 7 years...and a short change of ownership. Thrilled to report it's still my absolute favorite!!! While there are other great places to go (for breakfast and lunch) this is where you'll find me more times than not. I expect to see Elements rising!!!
