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.

I have been there before and enjoyed it, but never wrote a review. I wanted to grab lunch and bring it back to the office to eat, but I didn't want junk. Ellena's is close in downtown Napanee, so I went in. I ordered a chicken pesto sandwich and a hello dolly square. The staff are extremely friendly and the... More

What an incredible surprise this small cafe in Napanee, great food, lovely interior and really sincere service. A real effort has been made to use local ingredients, and freshness must be their mantra. Ellena is a real gem, and her staff are remarkable. The smoked meat sandwich is filled with Quinn's smoked beef, the beet salad one of the best... More

Stopped at Ellena's while driving on the 401, looking for a authentic lunch. Great cafe located in the idyllic downtown of Napanee. Warm atmosphere with friendly locals. The meals were from scratch and fresh, may not have been the most sophisticated but tasty with good genuine friendly service. I would recommend for light lunch fare.
