Great value! I enjoy the breakfast specials - especially because they include coffee. For $6 I get two eggs, bacon (or sausage) hash browns and toast. I feel the omelets are overcooked so I usually pass on that. Unfortunately, they just started charging for honey...I hate when places add that up charge. All and all a good breakfast place. I...

Friendly staff, lots of locals, great food. The gyro and feta omelette is delightful. Today I also had the multi grain toast, and I think it's the best toast I've ever had. Which might sound crazy because after all; its just toast. But it was recommended by our waitress and it was delicious and sweet. Weekends get very busy especially... More

On a recent road trip through Florida we were driving south on I75 and decided browse around Port Charlotte. We decided to have lunch and stumbled across Elena's. On entering the place was clean and bright and the atmosphere good. We were made welcome and immediately shown to a table. The food and drinks were excellent, the prices very reasonable... More

We come down a couple times a year and have always gone to a well known "place of breakfast" however on a whim I looked up alternatives since we weren't thrilled with our current spot. We were so happy with our first visit we came back the... More

My husband enjoyed a western omelette with hash brown...yummy! The bacon I had with perfectly cooked eggs was so good, coffee cup kept full, pancakes were delishious. The prices are decent for...

The two of us visited Elena's for a mid-morning breakfast. The restaurant is clean and bright and the staff was friendly. The menu is extensive and included many specials. We ordered the Eggs Benedict special and selected sliced tomatoes (red and ripe!) rather than potatoes. The eggs were cooked properly, the Hollandaise sauce was creamy and plentiful, the ham portion... More
