Such a treat to experience new and delicious food items.....every day is a new adventure. The physical environment is charming and a true pleasure to sit back and relax in one of Napanee's older buildings. Staff are welcoming, hands on and truly want their customers to be satisfied. Ellena's also offer a fantastic selection of food related wares that is... More

As Prime Minister of Canada, I would like to thank Ellena for the great food. I hope her leg heals up (yes, you are welcome for universal healthcare). Thank you for the great chicken salad on a panini.

This is a great little stop for miscellaneous kitchen items as well as some harder to find things. A great selection for people that are hard to buy for if they like to cook. But you can't leave without trying something from the baked goods section. It's all fantastic but I recommend the fudge if it's still available. The simple... More

Decided to stop in hoping to try their 'Coconut Cream Pie' and OMG it was amazing. A wonderful coconut base with coconut cream and piled high with whipped cream. Lots of other baked goods looked very tempting too. You can also purchase kitchen stuff, jams, etc. plus some seating to enjoy a small but great looking menu (soup/wraps/quiche).

Would not hurry back, funky store however the service was indifferent. Pleasant when we were noticed but the staff were more busy talking and working behind counter to provide us with service.

The last time I was in I picked up two pieces of quiche (prosciutto leek with Jarlsberg cheese - delicious) & a croissant with crab salad along with two different pasta salads & a tray of small dessert squares. My favourite were the lemon brownies. The food is always fresh & the atmosphere is cozy & friendly.

I slipped into this café on a very cold evening during Napanee's annual Santa Claus Parade. I had hot chocolate, cake and cookies while I sat at a table by the front window watching the parade and all the lights. I like Ellena's selection of home-made bake goods in the display counter at the cash and her homemade soups. I... More

This cafe has been on my stop list every time I find myself in Napanee on business. The staff is always bustling with prep and orders but they make you feel welcome and un rushed. The food is carefully prepared with delicious ingredients and the portions are perfect for a hearty lunch. I always get a piece of the coconut... More

Stopped in recently with my Aunt for lunch and had the quiche. Was very good and had a lovely table at the front window. While sitting there found out they often have live music in the back area. Next time I will definitely try to come and listen to the music while having a bite.

Thank Kim J
