I have been going to Eli's Espresso for many years. It is a great place to meet friends over very good coffee. Eli and Trixie always have a warm welcome, and Melissa is always efficient and friendly. Eli and Trixie have lived many places and always have interesting stories to tell. In good weather the terrace facing the street is a great place for people watching.

Nothing spectacular but the coffee was good. Lots of people when I was in enjoying themselves. Nice patio to people watch. Clean washroms. Would go back.

We have gone to Mahone Bay every summer for three years in a row - and stayed in the apartment for rent upstairs (Margot House). Every morning, we were greeted warmly by Eli and Trixie who cook and serve amazing breakfasts! Our children, ranging from ages 15 to 3 - all find their different choices from a delicious breakfast menu. The coffee is deeelicious (They always accommodate my desire for soy or almond milk lattes) and finally, their little cakes and desserts are worth sinning for, while we are on vacation. We love the atmosphere, the warm welcome and the food. We look forward to our next visit.

I have been to Eli's Espresso on several occasions over the last few years when visiting friends in Nova Scotia.
Eli's Espresso is a lovely, informal cafe with some great art work on display which is also for sale and from the terrace at the front one can observe the life of the main street of this picturesque little seaside resort.
Both the cafe and the washrooms are very clean and the owners and staff are friendly and helpful. There are some parking spaces next to the premisses. There is also free WiFi.
I particularly enjoy the toasted multigrain bagel with cream cheese which is attractively served with a slice of melon and blueberries. I usually drink Earl Grey tea with lemon which is served in a large cup but I would prefer this to be made with loose tea rather than a tea bag.
The home baked cakes are always tempting and very tasty.
Definitely worth a visit!

We have been here several times, delicious sandwiches, fresh fruit crepes, very good espresso, nice atmosphere...No one expects an 5 star menu, but the food was made on the spot, the coffee freshly brewed, everyone who served us was nice and friendly.
Nothing else to say. I like the place very much...
