Excellent service from attentive staff. Our omelettes and pancake choices hit the right spot and were plentiful. Only minus point for us were the restrooms which rather let the diner down. Not pleasant.

Astounding good breakfast of Danish pancakes or French Toast. The homemade jam was delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive even when it was very full. Walking distance from Flying Flags RV resort. Which is a plus. I will be back for sure when I am in the area, it is nice to go to a place like this, that a... More

For some reason, I was expecting pancake greatness! Unique, delicious and inspired pancake wonderfulness...I was sorely disappointed. This is a diner with uninspired diner food. We were staying at the local RV Park (Flying Flags) and walked over for breakfast. The menu listed the typical diner breakfast...eggs, pancakes, toast with a few omelet choices. Danish pancakes (a large, thin, crepe-like... More

Nothing to write home about but a solidly good breakfast of Danish pancakes and homemade cinnamon roll. Walking distance from Flying Flags RV resort.

Best quality food, huge portions and reasonable prices. Way better than what you will get in Solvang. Great Danish pancakes and the BLTA is outstanding!

Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The menus were dirty and the atmosphere was vintage garage sale. Food was average. Coffee was better than most diner brews. Cinnamon roll was doughy and my friend says his breakfast was just ok.

Ellen's is an institution in Buellton. Really. An Institution. I have had Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners here and it is always, I mean always, good food as I roll up and down the 101 Freeway. One of my favorites is the club sandwich. it really should be split between two people, but oh well I eat it all anyway! I... More

We visit every time we are in the west. The menu is always the same with daily specials to warm your tummy. The danish pancakes and Danish sausage is awesome. Restaurant is always busy busy but is now showing some wear and tear. The prices are more than competitive and will fit the buget minded

We stopped here because a local friend had told me about it. Our waitress was very helpful in recommending what she liked. I ordered a cheese burger with the potato salad. One of the best burgers I have had in a long time cooked rare as requested. The local meat is high quality. The potato salad was sweet and I... More
