Get to know us better

Get acquainted with our team below:

Gabriella Crail owner/manager

For years it has been a great passion of mine to create and serve the best coffee. I have tried many coffees from around the world, and until I get to travel to these destinations I've learned everything I know about coffee from hands-on experience. It has been a dream to be able to open a place that allows my family and I to serve what we have found to be the best thus far. We put a great deal of time and effort into our business here at Elements Cafe and only wish to serve the best quality we can get our hands on. It is with knowledge, experience, passion and quality ingredients, that we serve the finest you'll find in Columbia NC. Everything from gourmet coffee syrups to top notch craft roasted coffee, or smoked meats without preservatives to locally baked goods. Come on in, we are at your service!

John and Shari Crail

The foundation of this establishment is the Crail's. From the first conversation on the concept of our own business 15 years ago, to today, these two are dedicated to the cause. We truly love what we do. With John's craftsmanship, & Shari's expertise in herbal medicine, we get a 360 degree perspective in this family business. Shari, now accredited by Trinity School of Natural Medicine, has brought forth valuable life skills & knowledge in herbal remedies that apply to everyday health. Come into the store, have a chat with her & let her fix you up with a great healing tea & great advice. Elements Cafe wouldn't be what it is today without the help of these two.

Dustin Luton & our son Gabriel

While this business may not be Gabriel's future, we hope to instill the best qualities of business practices in him. And at least send him to college.

Dustin brings with him, years of merchandising experience including retail & beverage sales. And with a little restaurant experience he uses his logic to bring balance into the business from cost control to effective execution of specials with creativity. Along with John, he gets to be the woodworking commitee and handyman of the operation. They built the foundation we stand on today.
