Time Out says
This Hammersmith café was set up by five friends. It should get quite a bit of custom from those heading to and from London Olympia – it's just over the road.
Savoury items on the food menu include salads such as Thai beef with white cabbage, red onion, tomatoes and broccoli in a lime, ginger and soy dressing, and sandwiches filled with honey-roast ham, emmental, rocket and a honey-mustard dressing, or crayfish with sliced avocado rocket and lemon mayo. Breakfasts sandwiches and pastries also feature.
Sweets include praline and toffee and pecan cheesecakes alongside tiramisu, a dark chocolate and chantilly slice and a strawberry and Champagne mousse. Coffee comes from Union, and is made using a La Marzocco coffee machine.

Think you guys are fantastic at everything you do! My only complaint is that you are no longer open on weekends and it gives both me and my girlfriend serious withdrawal symptoms from your coffee and brunch. Think you guys should seriously reconsider doing weekends again.
Had lunch here in the middle of an exhibition at Olympia and it was fantastic. I did not have long so their speed and efficiency was very much appreciated despite having a queue that extended out the door and around the corner.
Whilst the seating space is limited, their selection of sandwiches and salads was really fantastic. I had a soup and salad from their selection and it was fresh and healthy. It is great value for the portions they give you and the fact that I could mix different salads was an added bonus. Their quinoa salad with caramelised pineapple was my favourite one.
Had a coffee to take away and it was refreshing to find a coffee in West London that has the depth and strength of the ones I am used to at small independents around the city and East.
Definitely a great recommendation for anyone at Olympia that needs efficiency, good quality and great value.
Have been coming here for the last two years for lunch and have see this little cafe go from strength to strength. Love this place and the team are friendly, efficient and very honest and professional. A real pleasure to have in the area!!
The Elysee Artisan cafe is a pure moment of delight ! A mix of quality, authenticity and creativity... Exceptional in small-sized pastries which give you the impression you have been taking part to a jet set tea party by tasting so many different cakes and yet feeling light and eager for more ! One definite A for this one !
There is nothing nicer everyday than popping into this place, being greeted by name, having my regular coffee order ready to go and all this before I have got to the till today. They really go the extra mile and deserve to win!
My friend who is a big fan recommended me to this café. She just couldn't stop talking about and dreaming about the beetroot salad and the coffee. Well she is right and apart from the salads my fave is the BLT sandwich ...yummy. I hope you win
love this place, i used to walk pass it all the time, and i noticed on lunch time there would be a crazy long line outside.
of course i had to check it out, and have not gone anywhere else since.
