Elmer's is a hidden gem in the hilltowns of Franklin County. Enjoy having breakfast here, once in a while if the main chef is away some breakfast items come out ok (cold homefries or burnt, very runny scrambled eggs). Never been

Elmer's is a fun place with lots of art exhibited and quirky little gifts and new agey books for sale. The baked goods looked nice, although I didn't have any. What I did have was the pulled pork which was very dry and didn't look or taste fresh. I was hungry so I ate. The greens that went with it... More

Excellent breakfast every day with modified menu on Sunday. Lunch and dinner were a disappointment, but the breakfast can not be beat.

Of course, it is the only breakfast in this small town, but it's worth driving out of your way to get it. Elmer's is the gathering place in Ashfield. It fills up with country folks, young families, and aging hippies, who all dig into the large plates of fresh-made eggs, pancakes, bacon, home-made breads, grilled potatoes, and . . .... More

Friends recommended Elmer's some time ago and finally we tried it. Wonderful! Small, charming restaurant within a small country store, filled with crafts from local artists and artisans. Friendly staff, perfect service, and fantastic, reasonably-priced food...seven seed sourdough bread (and other flavors), eggs, sausage, pancakes, very good coffee, and great "hash-browns" that really must be chopped up baked potato pieces...yummy!...

It's kind of small and kind of squished, but a funky fun atmosphere. I love going there for a weekend brunch which can be kind of busy, but while you're waiting, the people are nice and you can chat, there are Orion magazines to read, or you can poke around the store looking at the crafts that folks from the...

Hard to believe I haven't reviewed Elmer's. It's a great spot for breakfast, lunch, coffee and snacks. Building is an old country store that overlooks Ashfield's Main Street, a charmingly preserved spot of old New England in an off the beaten track hill town that was a long time summer mountain get away for some well to do and influential...

We have a family place in Ashfield and try to get up at least once a year from Atlanta. the trip would not be complete without at least one meal at Elmers. The breakfasts are great (particularly if you wear your t-shirt with the discount on the back). We have also enjoyed several great family dinners here and the food... More

Elmer's has grown by leaps and bounds since this latest iteration of a general store/diner sprouted some years back. They now provide breakfast/brunch on the weekends and breakfast on the weekdays and dinner on Friday nights. We visited over the Labor Day weekend and were seated at a lovely table outside on a crisp Saturday morning. The service was extremely... More
