“Give Elke a Try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Elke's is both an eat-in cafe and a small take out market. The food is always fresh and the specials change every day. Elke is a great chef and she runs the place like a neighborhood place should be run. She even caters and there's a lot of food.

“A Must-Eat-Here location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Terrific food, very high quality. A little pricey but worth every penny. My wife introduced me to this restaurant. I thought it more of a hangout for the girls, but I love the sandwiches and baked goods. One of the gems hidden in Allen.

“great lunch in Allen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Elke's food shows creativity and concern with quality. She and her staff try to create a hospitable atmosphere, and both the take-away and dine-in options are fresh and tasty. We had two different chicken salads, both of which were delicious. Baked goods, as well. We'll stop here again without hesitation when in the area. It's a great break from chain eateries and a step above most of them. The restaurant is in a nondescript strip mall on old Hwy 5 (Greenville Ave.), and worth a short detour off Hwy 75 into old Allen.
