I can only apologise for this unpleasant experience. However, this is an exception, not the norm. Also it has improved further as we now have a proper waiting tables service. Louisa Cath, Proprietor.

5 reviews of The Electric Elephant cafe-Gallery in English
Louisa the proprietor is always most friendly and welcoming, and takes care to get to know her regulars. I like the fact that I can head off to the Electric Elephant for lunch and never quite know what dish (or dishes) of the day she is going to surprise me with. There are usually some interesting remnants of the weekend newspapers - or back issues of Private Eye - scattered around by way of reading material while I wait for my food (just one plea: please remember to bring the cup of tea to the table quickly, even if the food takes a while to prepare!).
In fine weather it's lovely being able to sit out in Iliffe Yard (the cobbled mews outdoor seating area), and the yard forms a remarkably peaceful oasis in the midst of the inner city.
Prices are generally very fair, and Louisa also operates a crafty loyalty card scheme...nine stamps for beverages bought and you get a free coffee!
Very informal and friendly atmosphere, so don't arrive expecting michelin star service. But then, you won't be paying michelin star prices - it's really not that kind of place and I really wouldn't want it to be.

This is a lovely cafe to be found near the top of the Walworth road. Serving fresh soup every day, organic pastries & bread for sandwiches - good range of sandwich fillings, salads, homemade cakes & the famous Borough Market chocolate brownies. Really good (fairtrade organic) coffee. It also doubles as a gallery exhibiting work by Pullens Yards artists.
