Such a wonderful neighborhood place. They serve Stumptown coffee and the nitro cold brew is my favorite. Can also get breakfast, lunch or snacks here along with beer. Love it!

We love coming here whenever we're in the Del Ray area. We love the atmosphere, the coffee is made just right and there's always a selection of treats to choose from. My only complaint is the service. This last time here really took the cake when I placed our order and received the wrong thing. Do get me wrong, they... More

We went to St Elmos in the evening for a coffee. The coffee had a great flavor and is good quality! Both the latte and the iced mocha we got were excellent. Great place just to hang out. As a matter of fact, last night they had a band that was playing some big band music. Great atmosphere!

I like St. Elmo's. The muffins and coffee are good but their service is spotty at best. Usually it's fine but today, when I ordered a breakfast sandwich, nothing fancy, bacon, egg, and cheese on a bagel I waited and waited. Went back almost a half hour later and watched as employee after employee walked by my now cold sandwich... More

This is just down the way from Dairy Godmother. This is a little neighborhood coffee-tea shop with some food items typical for a coffee shop. It's wonderful because it's a one off not a chain & very relaxed. The coffees are great & they have entertainment which is free on some nights. There is some outdoor seating for nice evenings...

This coffee shop is adorable, like a Starbucks that isn't trying. What I mean is there's the standard seating, comfy couches and chairs for those looking to socialize, people watch or enjoy the street views, but there's also tables and chairs of a more stiff nature, more suitable for those attempting to work or read. I will say that the... More

My wife & I have visited St. Elmo's Coffee Pub several times since moving to Del Ray. The coffee is pretty good (never burnt) and the barista creations are pretty tasty. The service, however, is inconsistent. We've had super friendly baristas, one guy who was stoned out of his mind, and several who'd make Nurse Ratched look like a Wal... More

Always crowded, St. Elmo's has become an institution in the Del Ray area. Very good coffee as well as muffins and pastry provide a very good breakfast, a morning break or afternoon gathering. Tightly fit with furniture from another era inside and some tables outside, the customers are not so much interested in the décor as they are a place... More
