“Great breakfast place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

My wife and I had a very good breakfast here. My custom ham, onion, tomato and swiss cheese omelet was perfect. The eggs were the fluffiness I have ever had. Our waitress was delightful and efficient. My wife did not care for her miga frittata but it was only because they incorporated a bean chili mixture that she didn't care for. The sourdough toast was also very good. We would highly recommend this restaurant to our friends and family.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our family of 6 were looking for breakfast on a visit to Chicago, and this was near our hotel. We had never heard of it before, but the reviews were good. It was a great place to eat. Two of us ordered the #1 special, eggs and pancakes. When the meal arrived, it was not with the normal 2 eggs, but with 4. We were surprised. The food was cooked to perfection, and everyone was more than satisfied with their meal. The price was very reasonable as well.

“satisfying breakfast at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

My family went there for 3 mornings out of the 5 days we stayed in Glenview. Between us, we ordered a variety of breakfast plates. With the exception of the hash brown being very undercooked for our preference, everything was tasty and reasonably priced. The fresh strawberries on my crepes were indeed fresh, not like IHOP's syrup-preserved "fresh" strawberries.

Even on a busy morning, the servers made good efforts to come around with coffee refills and check up on the tables. We never had to wait to be seated either :)

“Great place for breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were staying at a nearby hotel and didn't know anything about Elly's. We were very glad that we gave it a try. Our server was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The fare is typical for breakfast with pancakes, waffles, french toast and the like but the menu is extensive and the staff were very friendly. It was Blackhawks playoff weekend and the staff had all dressed in their favorite Blackhawks gear to support the team. A good place to relax and enjoy your morning.
