every time I pass by Vancouver I don't loose the opportunity to eat at Elmer's. Food is always delicious and good quality . I loved the Germany cake, and the omelettes they have . Definitely would go back to eat at elmer's.

We split a prime rib sandwich and I had a glass of iced tea.....that was lunch. And it was a C- sand which at... More

We had the giant German pancake with caramel apple topping plus eggs and sausage yum vs steak and eggs! Enjoyed the food though it was not a cheap breakfast

We went here for breakfast and had the German Pancake, I must say this place is not very fancy and it somewhat like a Dennys on the inside but the staff are attentive and the food is very good tasting. Our waitress Brenda V went out of her way to separate our meal when she found out we would be... More

The food was tasty, the service was quick and friendly and it was good value/reasonably priced for large portions. The biscuits were great. The best part of the meal was the... More

Elmer's can be counted upon for good food, open at hours when many other places are closed, and friendly service.

Very nice and friendly servers and hosts! Always makes me feel right at home. My husband and I find the meals large enough to share so we have some room for appies or dessert. Great place --oh, and the grandkids love to balloon art on Saturday and Sunday mornings!

Elmer's has a very good selection of great food, very good atmosphere. Service is great. I have been to some good family restaurants, but none that compare with Elmer's.
