great little diner!

Reliable food options; busy spot because meals are tasty and service is outstanding! The owner remembers your regular order and serves it when you walk in! She even makes your favourite pie for your booked visit!! Just like going home to Mom!

Steak means steak hache. I ordered a combo which had 2ham, 2 sausages, 2 bacon. Price is 7.75, but the taste was just so so. Ham is not good, sausage is even worse. My husband ordered a plate of grilled meat. Mash potato had too much water! Only the polish sausage was good.For me, I think Chatham Breakfast is much... More

Fast service, good food, and the owner, Grace makes great conversation with everyone. She treats everyone like family. Highly recommended. Open for breakfast and lunch.

The décor may not be much to rave about and the servers may be a little brusque when busy, but that isn't why people come to Eli's. Breakfast is, and what a breakfast it is.

The only downfall of this place is that if you are an overweight person, you will not fit in your chair with the allotted space given. I am not overweight at... More

Title says it all, never had a bad breakfast here and I've had many! Food is always hot and yummy! Have been going here many years, with my parents, and now with my kids.

I like Eli's. Their prices are reasonable and they make a very good breakfast. Great coffee...lots of specials and I love watching the trains go by. This is a cash only restaurant, but they do have an ATM on site for those who didn't come prepared.
