Homey, comfortable, casual spot with good food and friendly service

Elmer's seems to be a favorite with the locals, and it has the comfortable feeling of a small-town general store. Food is fresh, prices are reasonable, furnishings are well-worn.

Elmer's seems to be a favorite with the locals, and it has the comfortable feeling of a small-town general store. Food is fresh, prices are reasonable, furnishings are well-worn. We were here for breakfast, so we didn't have a chance to sample the full menu. Coffee was good, and the homemade raspberry preserves were terrific.

This is a great little place to stop and shop or grab some pancakes or a sandwich. Great pancakes, they are yummy.

The menu is the first hint about how special this place is. All kinds of eggs, plain and fancy, supreme pancakes, home made breads, fine coffee. It's all there.

I only had a full, farm-fresh breakfast but I loved it and the atmosphere that was a country throw-back. I would love to have had lunch or return for a comfort-food dinner. Next time.

Best pancakes ever... And I don't say that lightly. I like to think my pancake standards are quite high. The French toast is also delicious. No fake syrup, either. Only the real deal at Elmer's. Fun and cozy atmosphere, great food, friendly staff. One of my favorite breakfast places, ever. Good coffee, too!

Absolutely an amazing place in every way. Humor in menu- you gotta see it! Breakfast omelette was huge and tasty, bread was awesome- fresh. Good coffee. Busling place. Artistic talk everywhere. I worked on a project at my computer while there. Owner and wait staff great

Elmer's has it all. Great breakfasts everyday, with special, fun events throughout the year. Beer and wine with dinner on select nights. Love this place!

Stopped into Elmer's for a late breakfast as I often have in the past. Favorite is the blueberry pancake and their homemade sausage. Normally have enjoyed the food, however, that day the pancake came out under cooked, the sausage patty was a hockey puck and the coffee tepid. Hoping this is a one time experience just for me not just... More

Just stopped by for coffee and a little bite to eat. We loved the service, the ambience -- as my wife said, it doesn't try to be charming, it really is. Nothing fake, nothing overdone here. Just a down home Massachusetts hill town eatery. Everything we had was superb. Wish we could go again today!
