Lots of great options, for both sweets and sandwiches. Many local groceries carry this line of sweets. I love it!

We dropped in after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We had croissants hot chocolate and coffee and were impressed with all of the food and drinks. One of the better coffees we've had in the US and the hot chocolates were great (even came with cream on top). One of our party had the toasted cheese and ham sandwich which... More

Love to stop by for a piece of pie and coffee. The pies are delicious! Each year around Thanksgiving, Sweet Elena's has a pie tasting -- super fun.

Joint was empty upon arrival, around noon, which raised some concern initially but faded soon there after Prices are average to below average for this area Many options to choose from, both food and drink. Sipping an "Italian" soda right meow. Supposedly made with rosemary, ginger and lemonade......turns out you can taste Rosemary, ginger.....wait for it....and lemons. It was made... More

I've been here a few times and really wanted to give it a good review but I can't. I try and support female owned business' but this one I cannot. There food is ok, portions are small, and quite frankly the service is poor. Staff isn't too friendly at the store nor at the Farmer's Market. The prices I think... More

This was my first time at Sweet Elena's even though I live down the street. I felt like a cappuccino so I decided to check it out. A little pricey for a cappuccino and a quiche but in all fairness the portions of both were very generous hence maybe why they charge more. The cappuccino was very good although it... More

I found this cafe a few days ago and fell in love with the artist appeal and vintage chic atmosphere that makes this place so adorable, however the homemade pies and hot drinks are the finishing touches to the already fabulous place as they are all around bursting with robust flavors and melt in your mouth goodness. Their Raspberry mocha... More

It's not located near anything else I would go to, but I go there because the treats are scrumptious, the atmosphere is soothing, the people are friendly, the coffee is great and the price is right. Did I mention the treats…all baked goods - home made with love. Super!

Stumbled upon this tiny, out of the way café in the land of warehouses in Sand City. Very casual and informal, friendly with an obvious attention to taste and presentation. The mixed vegetable galette (or savory tart) was a very generous size, perfectly balanced with lots of vegetables, goat cheese and right amount of spice. Excellent. The lemon tart was... More
