Stopped in at Ellen's on the way back from San Luis Obispo to get their delicious Danish pancakes. Service was excellent as usual.

“Best Pancakes around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a fantastic breakfast spot. After riding the Solvang Prelude for the last six years, I have made a point to stop here on Sunday morning on my way out of town. It is always a crisp November morning and the cafe is warm as is the staff. Very accomodating and the Danish pancakes with Danish sausage is always a winner.

Service was way above average. Breakfast could accommodate two. Location was excellent. Small but quaint.

“Fine Food, Happy Staff, and a Crazy Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We drive 35 minutes for pancakes, are we nuts? Maybe, but we have never had a bad meal at Ellen's ever. We have had early morning breakfasts and evening meals. We've had Danish Pancakes and Eggs and I have had BBQ'd Rack of Lamb for dinner that was as good as anything you could get at a specialty high end restaurant. We love the place.
By the way, we've been going there for 20 years, some of he wait staff have been there, smiling, every time we've gone. There are regular and travelers and just pain folks enjoying really good food.
