Yummy Pancakes!

Got to try the Danish Pancakes here. Really good prices and quick service. Easy to get to and close to the RV park we were staying at. I would like to try their Lunches next time....

Spent the night nearby on way to Long Beach. Had breakfast here which was very good and the service was excellent. Have different varieties of homemade jam on all tables.

We had good service and a delicious breakfast at Ellen's. There were six of us and we all had different things and all enjoyed everything.

Was advised that we had to stop by Ellen's and try the pancakes, so on our way out, we stopped by, I had the Danish Pancakes, with the thick cut bacon, my friend had the all American pancakes with bacon, I was in a Danish bliss once my food arrived, I topped the Danish pancakes with the raspberry spread, as...

Our family has made Ellen's a "must stop" for many years when we are travelling south. In fact, we schedule our travel time to eat breakfast here! The portions are so plentiful, you might want to share, but they are so very good that you will find yourself groaning by trying to eat more than you should. This last trip... More

This is a great little diner. The waitresses have worked there forever and are super super nice. I eat here with my BF all the time and they know him from high school (he's in his 50's now).

Ellen's is a local favorite for a reason. It's not fancy, it's a diner... but the food is good and the service great, with friendly people and good sized helpings. Never had a bad meal there. My rating for it is for a diner... Not a steakhouse... So take it as it is ;)
