First visit to the Elm Cafe and excited to see kedgeree on the menu. So disappointed with the offering. The rice was so very dry, bland and tasteless and it was a futile search to find pieces of smoked fish. Not a kedgeree in my opinion. Sad to see a good cafe be mean on the ingredients. Cost was $21.00. Not good enough

On entering the first thing I noticed was the noise and the drab beige decor.The windows are high up so there is no viewing outside except for the front.However the friendly welcome from the staff made up for it.There is alfresco dining in the front on warmer days and they allow pets outside.They are not open for dinner but offer Nz craft beer and wine and have an extensive menu pricing up to $30.
There is cabinet food for those on the run and an assortment of cookies in jars.There are magazines to read, caution with the tables as they have a tendency to tip.
