Ely is an awesome proprietor and works around special diets. She makes everything fresh. I love her omelets. She and her daughter and darling grandson always make you feel very welcome.

Good wholesome food. Located across from city hall. Wide variety of American and Asian food. Try the red rice. Sort of a nutty rice rarely seen elsewhere. How Ely waits on tables and cooks food at the same time is miraculous. Some customers have been coming for years

We stopped at Ely's for lunch one day as we had never been there, it was convenient right in the middle of town. Quite a disappointment! We were greeted as soon as we walked in, given a menu & water, the menu seemed quite limited for choices. The décor was not what you would you expect. We both ordered a... More

Just a little hole in the wall D/T Sequim from the outside, but inside, look out! The owner is a wonderful, friendly woman, her food is good (just a little greasy), and the decor is delightful! Get their early as this is a local hangout. We arrived at 8:15am, by 9am the place was packed!

A family run place with a small but adequate menu - just wanted a sandwich but had their french fries as well and they were freshly cooked and were delicious. It wasn't busy so we didn't have long to wait for anything. Service was friendly and everything was reasonably priced.

This poor woman greets,takes orders,cooks, serves, then is cashier. All that being said,it slows down the process, so you will wait a while for your food. The food is what you would expect in your best friend's kitchen. Good, but not great.

I have yet to taste Ely's Asian inspired lunch and dinner menu but they also do breakfast and its typical American - modestly priced, very good indeed and a great place to meet friends to solve the day's problems.

Nostalgic for Vietnamese-style beef noodle soup (pho) we fell for the advertisement of this item at Ely's. Major Mistake. Their product is nothing like the original. The rice noodles kind of looked like pho but there were far too many noodles and the texture was somehow off. The broth was nothing at all like genuine pho beef broth -- this... More
