We always make sure to visit Elspeths at least once, when we visit The Mount. The coffee is always excellent- nice and hot too! The treats in the cabinet are delicious, as is the bread which can be purchased to take away. Service is always...prompt and friendly.More

This is a great little café with an appealing cabinet. Just 2 comments, floor staff and all customers were wearing masks but the female (manager) serving at the counter and out on the floor didn’t? Not a good example to the other staff! I know...some people can’t wear masks due to health issues but why make them customer facing. Comment on the food, I had the porridge which was very nicely presented and tasted good, just slightly spoilt by covering it in frozen ( straight from freezer) raspberries. I would normally pass feedback on to café manager but I wasn’t comfortable talking to her for obvious reasons.More

We came here for the first time. The reviews were good, so we thought: Let's check it out. No regrets. I was impressed when they brought the food out to us. But it didn't only look good, it tasted really good as well.

Can't fault the food which was very tasty. However the staff need to up their game on patrons arriving. It took a while to be acknowledged, one waitress was just talking to the barista, couldn't give a toss who was coming & going. One young...lad standing with hands on hips, not doing too much. Finally the barista, asked us if we wanted breakfast ( not his job, but think he felt embarrassed for us) It's not clear if it's table service or order at counter, I had to ask. Come on owners, get your staff up to speed, in welcoming customersMore

Have always had great food and coffee here. Was excited to bring a friend for a late lunch. Checked closing time online - 3pm. Arrived at 2pm and was told the kitchen was closed - closes at 2pm. 2 people wanting lunch a few days...after lockdown was lifted and businesses are struggling. Maybe keeping the kitchen open for the time it took to prep or heat 2 meals might have been the better decision?More

We visited Elspeths bakery/cafe three times in two days. There were so many delicious pastries and treats in the counter cabinet (sit down or takaway) as well as lovely bread. Coffee was great - hot and strong. Friendly efficient staff. Shame we didn't find this...place, which is slightly out of the CBD, sooner but we will definitely return next time we visit The Mount. Eddies which has menu food (brunch) is in the same building but you order on the right hand side of the counter. Would definitely recommend this place.More

Eddies and Elspeth surpasses the test of a good cafe with excellent coffee. The cabinet food was of high quality standard. The Bostock comprised of a brioche base with an almond layer topped with an assortment of berry fruits. For me and another at our...table it was the Custard Danish with a portion of Black Doris plum in the centre. Worth a visit to add to your favourite cafe list.More

An odd establishment with two businesses sharing one premise and barista. Still, it works. Fantastically good coffee (and I am an unashamed coffee snob). The scones are outstanding, as is the house-made jam they come with. All of the cabinet food looks lovely, as are...the more substantial servings in the other half. Staff in both sides are very friendly and helpful. Try it out - you won’t regret it.More

Wow! Flavour explosion in your mouth. So many beautiful flavours in all the dishes we tried at breakfast which all complimented each other. The waffles are probably the best breakfast I’ve had, ever! Strong and smooth coffee and a perfect kids menu. Simple and cheap...- just what you want when you’re taking your child along. Something for everyone on this menu for sure. Decent portions and prices. Can’t wait to visit again!More
