So many choices. You could eat hear every weekend for a year and never eat the same thing twice. Nice atmosphere and good service.

Eggs 'n' pancakes, hard to go wrong. The eggs were really good, 'cakes a little dry. I'd eat here again. Service was very nice though a bit slow.

We were in this area for the weekend and our hotel recommended Elly's for breakfast. The food and service was so good that my children asked to go there again on Sunday before heading back home. The food tasted great, restaurant was clean, good size portions, wait staff friendly and courteous. We will be back!
