Despite the fact that there is always a lot of customers here in the mornings (especially Sunday's), Elmer's staff continues to amaze. They are always sure to seat you in a timely matter and never forget to accommodate your every need. They will come by with a water or ask to refill yours whenever they see it is empty. I... More

Went on a mid-morning weekday for breakfast, the restaurant was only about 1/3 full and I was seated quickly. The service was excellent, and my food only took about 10 minutes from the time I ordered. While they serve all meals, breakfast is really where they shine, and this meal was no exception. The Crabacado omelet was delicious, served with... More

I was disappointed that my breakfast choice was discontinued. After going to another Elmer's in Eugene, I was told that they had not heard of that. What was it? Cinnamon roll french toast......

Servers are very friendly, neat in appearance, and accommodating. First time back in 12 years. Food was average, the pancakes very good. The scrambled eggs overcooked. They were willing to make substitutions if you are on a specialized diet.

Every time I'm in the area we dine here at least 1 or 2 times. My favorite is the breakfast menu (which they serve all day). So many choices and everyone must try their German pancake, the best I've ever had! They have a pretty large menu and every time we've eaten there the food has been excellent! Always plenty... More

When I come into town I make sure to have at least one, usually more, breakfasts here. The omelets are always fresh and well done. Fluffy eggs and not flat or browned on the outside with generous amount of filling. The Eggs Benedict is also superb. To top it off the staff is always friendly and professional. I tend to... More

Came in for dinner and our waitress was great! Our kids had previously eaten so they were treated to chocolate cake the waitress made it as special as it was to them. Our orders came out quick and the food was great! Elmers is always great but the dinner staff here was above great!
