This full-service cafe with the spirit of the outdoors is also a curated general store and gosh darn perfect for gatherings.
A special event space moonlighting as a coffee-shop and menu-driven by the healthy bites of a former Top Chef - its decor is inspired by the pacific northwest. Neatly tucked into a Greenwich neighborhood, this space is bathed in natural light and blood wood decor - delight in these details for a sweet and small(ish) soiree.
Founded in October 2014 by Vancouver native, Claire Chan, THE ELK features a full service cafe, a menu of lite and healthy bites created by Chef Sam Talbot, as well as a selection of market, home, and lifestyle items for sale. Inspired by her roots in the Pacific Northwest, Claire infused THE ELK's 650sqft decor with the spirit of the outdoors and her chill Northwest style. With a focus on social responsibility and sustainable practices, THE ELK is committed to offering guests the highest quality organic & local ingredients.

The Elk's menu is the brainchild of Chef Sam Talbot who frequents local markets daily for the freshest ingredients. An un-written item on the menu: people love to “put an egg on it”, so we will serve some of our crowd favorites like the avocado mash toast or kale caesar with a fried egg by request!
There are daily baked goodies always on the menu yet on certain days there are surprise menu add-ons like nutella filled cookies.
Just off Greenwich Street and surrounded by neighborhood homes, The Elk's floor to ceiling windows provide a welcoming glimpse into the café before entering. The Elk's newly refurbished location maintains the neighborhood feel with the original outer facade, inner architectural columns and brick wall.
Partnering with the well-known carpentry duo Ennis McIntosh, The Elk features a contemporary design. Natural daylight floods in from the floor-to-ceiling windows, emitting a simple glow off the blond wood decor. By night, the light of the indoor hanging lamps warms the environment. The seating can be rearranged to fit the needs of the event.
Standout Venue Features:
The Elk is also a small general store featuring a collection of unique picks including Joya Candles, Anarchy in a Jar jams and assorted Izola home goods line the walls. The café & general store pairing creates a very intimate neighborhood environment removed from the busy city.
Awards & Notables
The Elk has been featured in Eater NY, NY Dining Guide, Zagat, Food Network, The Village Voice, The Manual and City Brewed.
