Great place for breakfast.

We stayed at Adventure Inn and the owner recommended we eat here. I am glade we did. The place was very busy so the service was a little slow. We were in no hurry so that was fine. The wait was worth it. Very good food. More food that I could eat. I had the stuffed hash browns with cinnamon... read more

Our extended family spent wo weeks in Ely and ate at Brittons at least four times for breakfast. Go with a big appetite or plan to share. The pancakes are the size of a large dinner plate. The blueberrie pancakes and the asparagras o elet with hollandaise sauce is soooooo good. They have a hashbrown concoction that needs sharing for... More

This is where the locals eat. Good home cooking and great staff. I had breakfast yesterday and lunch today. Both meals were great and large portions. Only reason I gave a 4 star was they don't take credit cards. Be sure to have cash.

When traveling, breakfast is usually more than just a continental breakfast. I am a eggs,potatoes,meat, kind of person. This place will dish out the small town,northwoods charm. Nothing is overpriced. I will start any day in Ely off with a meal here.

This is a "regular" kind of place - where the locals would direct you to find a good meal, because that's where they eat. We have mainly been there for breakfast, but that seems to be there specialty. Huge portions and always satisfying. This last visit we stopped during the lunch hour, but breakfast was still available. I had the... More

Had super service and the way you want it! No food request was denied. The stuffed hash browns are awesome. Don't worry you will not leave hungry. There is a reason this restaurant has been active in Ely for so long great food and super friendly service.
