A bit overpriced. My sandwhich was good, until I found a hair in it. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their sandwhich and coffees. Not sure if I will return.

A great place to stop for breakfast or lunch on your way through Mahone Bay. The coffee is great and there are plenty of sweet and savoury options. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Had cappuccinos and western sandwich. Both were good. Service was good but not very friendly. Beautiful spot. U can sit on porch in warm weather. Lots of seating.

Stopped at Eli's Espresso for a huge mug of coffee and found they serve Kicking Horse which is a fairly decent BC brand. I got my mug a reasonable price and bought a scrumptious chocolate and caramel florentine cookie. I saw they also serve $6.75 sandwiches that looked delicious and have cinnamon rolls that are calling for a return visit... More

We had breakfast at this place. Really good coffee. Very friendly service. Fresh bagels and also had their full breakfast. Looked like a favourite place for the locals.

This is the second time in 2 years coming here and the coffee (two lattes) were so poorly done that we could not finish them. Milk was over-heated to the point of almost scalding the milk. The overall taste was off...not sure what they did as I am very familiar with their brand of coffee beans

Stopped in just before closing on a Saturday. Got two lattes, a cookie and a pound of coffee. We have eaten breakfast a couple of times in the past and it was good.

We chose to sip hot chocolate with cookies: very nice! My local friend and I sipped, chatted, and enjoyed the quiet view of the yard. This is a quite shop: try them out!

Had wonderful wonderful coffee and pastry at Eli's we found as we drove thru Mahone Bay on way to Lunenburg. Lovely space, gracious staff. My friend had a great London Fog. The croissant were perfect. Patrons close by had good looking sandwiches. Wish we could of stayed longer in this lovely town.
