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.

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.

The staff at Elf Hollow Cafe are always friendly and patient. The pizza is very good. They even had a gluten free menu for one of my son's friends who has a gluten allergy.

Awesome place to go for the breakfast buffet rather than going out. Great selection like at z cafe but just breakfast as opposed to brunch.

This place small and the food isn't great. The best part is the breakfast buffet and the Cow Path Beer.

The service and food were good and prices quite reasonable, but not much on the menu (especially the children's menu) that could be classed as healthy.

Food was really good. Was expecting Chuck E Cheese caliber pizza but it tasted like real pizzeria pizza! Crust was perfect and sauce was excellent. Only negative thing was our waiter. Wasn't terrible but he kept saying I'm not usually over here, trying to get my act together, and it took a long time to get our food. He was... More

Wasted alot of water park time trying to use my voucher for the breakfast buffet this morning. Big big mob of people waiting outside, less than half the tables occupied and NO hostess anywhere to be found, nobody seemed interested in getting anyone seated etc. This is for a buffet too, you know, where people just serve themselves.

The breakfast buffet was very tasty with a nice variety and healthy choices. The wait was long however and the area is small with tightly packed tables that makes walking to and from the buffet difficult.
