Haven't been here for at least a year. The service is still outstanding and the food continues to be fresh and tasty. Our party of four enjoyed each of their entrees. Prices are competitive.

We ate there several mornings in a row while we were in Chicago. Great service, large portions, roomy interior, did I mention the coffee.. You've got to try it for yourself. Pretty extensive menu that covers pretty much anybody.

Elly's has great pancakes. The coffee was good. the only reason they get 3 stars is because the omlete had way to much oil in it.
