Boss Lady

“If the prospect of living in a world where trying to respect the basic rights of those around you and valuing each other simply because we exist are such daunting, impossible tasks that only a superhero born of royalty can address them,then what sort of world are we left with? And what sort of world do you want to live in?” -Wonder Woman
Ellen lives to take care of people and finds the best way to do so is through food. Even when she’s daydreaming, her thoughts never stray from ways to solve problems and make the world a better place. All superheroes have their proverbial kryptonite: her’s is a fear of waterslides.

The only thing that makes Sara happier than eating cheese, is baking bread filled with cheese (or mustard & pickles). Her secret weapon? An entire room in her house filled with cake decorating supplies, and bringing back the high-five!

A good weekend for Max includes 30 pounds of fried chicken and a few friends to help him eat it. His debonair charm and buoyant personality make him one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. The copious amounts of caffeine probably help, too.

Caitlyn prides herself on working hard, but always manages to have a lot of fun! Her positive outlook makes her a powerhouse in the kitchen, and she can be heard cracking punny-jokes throughout the day. Vanessa Carlton’s “1000 miles” never fails to get her pumped up!

The Breadsmith

Ali might be the biggest fan of coffee in all the land. If she had an extra arm, one would be needed for her coffee cup and the other two for kneading bread. Her greatest fears involve Jack Nicolson and soggy bread and above all, the extinction of chocolate.

The Joyful Barista

Ayo prides herself on unwavering beverage excellence and camaraderie among her teammates. She is deathly afraid of mold and mice but will make an exception for moldy mice performing in Broadway musicals singing her favorite international R&B tunes. If you happen to be at Ellie’s when Ayo is on shift, ask her to make you an amazing drink, because she will!

The Honey Badger

For Nick, there is no job too small and nothing too broke to be fixed. When he isn’t busy at Ellie’s, he’s daydreaming about his honeybees. The funniest thing to happen to him today is his face. See: Iconic raised eyebrow.
It is common knowledge that honey badgers are not afraid of cobras, however; spiders, hairless cats, and soy are a different story.

Marisa enjoys a bit of irony in her life, a backcountry explorer who’s deathly afraid of stinging insects and a strong distaste for country music. She’s just a modern gal who loves the synthesized sounds of experimental disco while avoiding all things unnatural like plastics and Providence motorists.

Ellie’s has expanded production at Hope & Main in Warren Rhode Island.

Ellie’s is a place for you to slow down and appreciate a few quiet moments in your day. Of course, we understand if you are in a hurry, but if you have a few minutes, how about enjoying a slowly poured, individually prepared cup of New Harvest Coffee? Pour over coffees are brewed to order by hand, and really bring out the subtle nuances of a particular coffee bean.
