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.

the combo (2 bacon, 2 hm, 2 sausage, 2 egg, homefries, toast) for $7 is a no brainer. Its always cooked perfect and consistently every time I go there.

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.
