Turtle Cafe

Due to Elwood's 'Turtle Cafe' coffee laden menu, huge array of vegetarian alternatives, obscure name and kitsch and relaxed interior the cafe is a popular haunt for local hipsters.

Don't let that discourage you from visiting. I hear they're kind of okay when you get to know them. Besides, you'll be so caught up in enjoying your meal that you'll hardly care. Run by mother and son team, Frieda and Guy Ezard, the cafe is also extremely popular for those with furry friends (there is a park close by, and a shady nature strip area) and kids (the menu is very child friendly).

Absolutely no alcohol, this is a place to unwind with the paper, a coffee and some delicious Turtle Eggs Benedict (hah hah, I see what they did

An awesome place for brunch. I recently went to this little cafe on a brunch date. We ordered soy lattes (which was one of the best soy lattes I have ever had) and brunch meals. My meal was amazing, egg, salmon, pesto and avocado (I have added a photo). It was large and reasonably priced and delicious. Friendly staff and great customer service. Will certainly return!

I recently had a meal at the Turtle which is under new management. The food was wonderful with all the usual breakfast/brunch choices including a delicious egg and fried beetroot (fried to look just like bacon!) dish! Service was prompt initially but a bit slow

The Turtle Cafe was an Elwood icon- a busy breakfast and lunch place with great food and good service. It reinvented itself after a terrible fire. I recently went to the Turtle and found the food had declined while prices had increased. I found the service to be good but the menu is quite limited and the quality of the food doesn't justify the price. I hope the Turtle will make another comeback and not turn into another bar!
