This is one of the best breakfast diners I have been to. The furniture was comfortable, the rug was clean and the entire place looked almost new, not sure how long it has been there. It is a stand alone restaurant in a small shopping area close to I-75. Recommend passing the first entrance and going in the Sports Authority entrance so you can just cut back into the parking lot, otherwise you have to enter the shopping area and wind yourself back around since the main entrance is divided. Arrived at 7 am and joined the only 3 or 4 other people there so I had plenty of attention from the waitress. The meal arrived quickly, one biscuit and sausage gravy with one egg and sausage, cost with tip was $14. It was all delicious, if you order the 2 biscuit with gravy you better be really hungry. It was a quite unhurried breakfast in a pleasant atmosphere, absolutely great, would highly recommend if you are in the area or passing on I-75.

Elaine's is a great choice for either breakfast or lunch. Their country fried steak and eggs with sausage gravy is the best. Loved the home fries cooked nice n crispy. I have also been pleased with their chicken salad sandwich and homemade soups. They offer fresh squeezed orange juice too. Next time I will finally give one of their homemade pies a try.

We go every Friday for brunch and we're never disappointed! Love the juicy cheeseburgers the best part is you can have a side salad instead of fries with no additional charges! Try the thousand island dressing it is fab they make it themselves!! Great omelets! Yummy salads and good sandwiches! If your looking for a cute, clean reasonable tasty breakfast, brunch or lunch definitely give this place a try!

First time trying this restaurant since it was changed from Sugar and Spice. The interior decor is still the same. The food was good, and the service was fast. We enjoyed the lunch. We will definately be back.

Stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday. We ordered the Eggs Benedict and Eggs & Ham. Both breakfasts were good, nothing special though. The Canadian Bacon was very thick, I like it on the thinner side. The Hollandaise sauce was also on the heavy side and a little bland. It was still good though and the fruit cup was nice and fresh. The Eggs and Ham breakfast was delicious and it was a generous portion. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the home fries were nice and crispy. Waitress was very nice and we had good service. Will probably try it again but order something other than Eggs Benedict. They have lots of choices on the menu.
