Love their breakfasts, especially since they serve it all day. The German pancake is fantastic. Super friendly service. A very consistent chain.

I have always enjoyed coming to Elmers. Nice menu choices with everything from oatmeal to crepes. Whenever I come here I order some form of crepes, today loganberry. They were great. Vancouver is a very historic place. If you're looking for something to do be sure to see the old Fort Vancouver, which was named after Captain George Vancouver. The... More

Wonderful place, good food and prices, outstanding staff! My wife and I frequently eat here for a quality meal at a fair price. Everyone at Elmer's is extremely welcoming and quick to get you anything you need. The dining area has a great home feeling that is quite comfortable.

We ate at another Elmer's and found the food and service to be great, so we tried this one. It didn't disappoint. They weren't busy and the service was quick and the food was very tasty. I think they do great business for breakfast and lunch, but they do great food for dinner too.

I asked my son what he wanted for dinner for his 12th birthday. Anyplace he wanted to go, anything he wanted to eat. He said "Biscuits and Gravy",..... seriously.. so, we went to Elmers. The food was good, the service started out good. But when I realized we unknowingly came I 10 minutes before closing, the service suddenly got better.... More

Went across the bridge the Convert and stopped to try Elmer's there. I have to admit, they are just as good as the ones at Gresham and Mall 205. Great food and great service. Caitlyn was a great waitress.

While visiting in the area, we found this great breakfast restaurant. The marion berry French toast was so tasty. We split the selection, and they brought us 2 plates with the food already divided. Love the marion berries of the NW. Waitress was efficient, pleasant and cherry. Along with the good cup of coffee, the dining was a nice way... More

We have been to this restaurant several times now. We've come as a couple and come with family and we can always count on this restaurant to deliver good food, and good service. If you're in town and you're looking for a place for breakfast it's comfortable with good food then check out this place

Elmer's is a bit more expensive than the average diner. Order an omelette and you'll understand why. I had the smoked ham and cheese omelette with hash browns and coffee. The omelette was as good as any I have ever had. The hash browns were crumbly, not tight. I prefer tight hash browns. The coffee was typical diner coffee, nothing... More

I stayed at a nearby hotel for about a month and went to Elmer's a couple of times a week. I've sampled a fair bit of their menu and always found the food tasty, quickly served, and reasonably priced. I've always gone in alone, and have always given the waiters/waitresses a hard time, just because I'm obnoxious. Guess I scared... More
