Elle makes a limited selection of high quality breads and pastries. On the morning I was there, they had one kind of loaf, a honey spelt. It was dark and crusty on the outside but lighter and fluffier on the inside. It was delicious. They did pretty well with one of those monster biscuits that are usually more show than anything else, but this was much better than most with a crusty top and coarse salt that added an extra kick. Still, I am always more impressed with how those things look than how they taste.
On the sweet side, a monkey bread was quite good. A rather expensive passionfruit mousse was short on flavor and was underwhelming.
I'd say go certainly for the bread, one of the finest in the area. The website will list which one or two breads they make that day.
In addition to being a bakery, they remain open in the evening for dinner service which is supposed to be very good. I have yet to try it.
