Popped in for lunch whilst returning eldest son to university. Food was simple but excellent. Portions were generous and really good value for money; £13.50 for food and drinks for 3. The café is very small but Elena was very welcoming. Highly recommended.

Really nice smaller sized café where each guest is made to feel at home, food is all freshly cooked to order, and the coffee is superb.

Dropped in for lunch on a cold rainy November day. Had the most amazing Italian chicken broth which was just what was needed. Followed with excellent coffee and scones. Just superb and the service was so friendly and helpful. Definitely going back.

We visited Elena's purely based on the fantastic reviews and we were not disappointed. The croissants were the best we've ever tasted! I only wish we'd been hungrier and could have tried more items, or that we'd had more time and could have gone back. Will definitely return next time we're in Lincoln.
