“Great coffee but excellent staff”

Cafe Ella Melbourne

Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

I had the opportunity to have coffees for 3 days at Cafe Ella. By the first afternoon I was being welcomed by name by Sunny. The coffee was excellent and quick considering how busy it was. As a visitor I would certainly go back for the food that looked fresh with Thai/vietnamese favourites.

Would have to be a hidden gem on the St Kilda Road strip. All staff go out if their way to ensure you leave satisfied with regulars greeted personally by name. Coffee is consistently of a high standard.

Café Ella offer some great options on the menu and in the hot plates. The Pad Thai with Cashews is delicious, especially the veggie variation! The fried rice is also delicious!

The juices are freshly made with a good range, taste and price.

Occasionally I have had meat which felt a little lower grade so now I tend to stick to the veggie options, which are filling and tasty. The prices for food is a little steep I feel, but there are so many staff, all of whom need to be paid!

The staff are really great and very friendly, always greeting with a smile and calling customers by name. I see many regulars return time and time again, a sign of happy customers!

Will definitely return time and time again.

Located at the ground level of an office building, this cafe does a good daytime trade with the local office workers. Inside the cafe is a bit on the loud side but there are plenty of tables to sit at or you can get food to go.
The menu has a good selection of meals from ready made options to cook to order meals. The soups come in massive bowls, which is always good for a chilly winters day.
I had the Tom Yum soup which was delicious.
