Lunch at Elke's today was "The Other Nutty" an excellent sandwich that I enjoyed thoroughly. I was tempted by the Chicken Schnitzel I saw them cooking, so I might need to make a special trip. In addition to the cafe, this restaurant has a take out counter with desserts, dips and casseroles.

So glad to have found Elke's. The take-out options are excellent. The cornbread muffins are yummy. I buy their ranch dressing regularly to bring home, it's the best.

My friend and I love eating here. It is easy to order and they have a reward program which you can sign up for.

If you want something fresh and hand-made with a nice sit down atmosphere then try Elkes. They have the best jalapeno pimento cheese I've ever tasted!

I've had the carrot soup and butternut pear soups, they are smooth and delicious. Open for lunchtime. They also have a take and bake in their market side.

Delicious home made food. You can't go wrong with Elke's. Sandwiches are delicious, the atmosphere is great and the people are wonderful. There are frozen takeout meals for when you don't want to cook. daily blue plate specials keeps you coming back! Amazing deserts, my favorite is the banana pudding.

Elke's is a great place for lunch. I've never been disappointed in any of the food I've ordered. They have wonderful soup, sandwiches, and salads. The board at the front announces the specials of the day. My personal favorites are the chicken salad sandwich and the chicken artichoke soup. There is an attached deli with great carry out items. It's... More

Consistently good. Exterior does not impress but worth a trip for the food. Yummy! Never see many men in there though. Seems to be a favorite for ladies who lunch.

We stopped in for lunch and had the pork sandwich special and a kids meal for my daughter (mac and cheese). I really liked the flavor combination of the sandwich and my 3 year old ate her whole plate
