ART comes to us in many different genres... It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce to Oceanside and beyond a new and tasty adventure in gastronomic fulfillment. The opening of Elena's French Crepe's Café located at the corner of Oceanside's Artists Alley and 511 Pier View Way.* The new business is owned by Elena and Hassan El Sharkawy.

Elena is the most charming and energetic woman I have met in a very long time. She is a painter and has many stories to tell of her journey's across this world. She is now embarking upon a new adventure in the opening of her Café in the heart of Oceanside's Arts and Theatre district.

Hassan is also an artist. Retired from oral surgery the owner of dental clinics in Egypt, he has journeyed to America to start his new life as a painter/sculptor and co-owner of Elena's Café. Together, they are part of  the wondrous International makeup of our City of Oceanside. The dynamic energy they bring will welcome You and will give you the flavor of tastes from the Old World melding into the New World of Cooking Arts for our City of Oceanside and beyond.

In Oceanside we now have Elena making her art form for You and for Me !
