Elphino’s gets a makeover

Enjoy a perfectly made cappuccino at Elphino’s.

Elphino’s, the charming coffee shop situated in the grounds of the Elphin Lodge Retirement Village in Lyndhurst, has had a make-over.

Interior designer Anne-Mare Liebenberg worked her magic to give the coffee shop a fresh new look. A huge panel of pink roses is the focal point of the shop, which is bright and inviting.

Sheer roller-blinds have been installed at the outdoor seating area to protect visitors from the elements.

Barista Vivacious Sibanda with a tempting lemon meringue pie.

Elphino’s opened in 2012 in the Rand Aid Retirement Village.

It is a wonderful gathering spot for people visiting residents of Elphin Lodge and Ron Smith Care Centre but also welcomes anyone who is looking for a supportive environment to enjoy an outing with an older person.

Wanda de Groot, who took over as manager of Elphino’s just over a year ago, is also introducing a new menu.

Old favourites have been retained and there are a few tempting new offerings.

The food is freshly prepared and very well priced.

To give you a teaser: a chicken mayo toasted sandwich served with chips costs R29, a cheese and bacon spud with coleslaw costs R35, fish and chips are R45, a Cajun chicken and avo wrap costs R42 and breakfasts range from R27.50 to R50.

Elphino’s coffee shop has been given a fresh, modern look.

Enjoy a scone with jam and cream for R20, chocolate or toffee pudding for R30, a filter coffee for R18 or a milkshake for R25.

Elphino’s is open on Tuesdays to Sundays from 9am to 4pm and provides a welcoming environment for older persons and their loved ones or carers.
