Very good breakfast buffet

We have had the breakfast buffet here a couple of times. Really good food. We stopped for a quick snack and the food was ok that time. My son went another time for late nite snacks and loved it. Cute atmosphere and you can watch the waterpark area while you eat.

This quaint little cafe' is a favorite of ours whenever we visit Frankenmuth and stay at Zenders Splash Village. There are some unique eats, the nachos are truly delicious. The service is top notch and friendly. I highly recommend eating at the Elf Hollow Cafe

The food and service were very good and the prices were reasonable for a buffet. Prices for children were a little more than half of the adult price. Freshly squeezed orange juice was a bonus!

We really loved the fresh squeezed orange juice at breakfast. The service was great. Super friendly staff. Their pizza and breadsticks are also delicious.

I loved the fact that it is a full service restaurant inside the waterpark. Don't have to dress up and leave the facility for a good sit down meal. And best of all, it is affordable, many parks like that have restaurants but take advantage of the face you are a "captive" audience on the pricing. Elf Hollow does not,... More

All you can eat, unlimited fresh squeezed orange juice, hot food galore. Ate lots. Only downside was you had to ask for butter.

Love that there is great food at Zehenders water park. There is a good variety of kid friendly food at a reasonable price. You do need to be dressed (no swim suits only) in order to be served. Snacks are a littly pricy, but oh so good.

The food, the service, the price all horrible. No one was in the place and it took us forever to get service. Then the food was imitation for a hefty price.
