“Consistently Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Some of the best omelettes in town. I like the chicken fried steak. Great service. I do wish that they would have fried matzos with fried salami at this location; they do in the suburbs.

“Excellent Breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Really delicious breakfasts. Pancakes. Eggs. Egg Skillets. Everything I tried was great. So if you love breakfast, you love Elly's.

“Disappointing...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Food was uninspired and served by people who seemed to have many more interesting things to do than wait on our table. Not horrible, but definitely wouldn't return.

“Worth the bus trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We went for Sunday brunch today and it was every bit as good as our previous visits. We had the special club breakfast that comes with juice eggs bacon sausage and 2 buttermilk pancakes and we ordered a side of hash browns.
We have also been to Wildberry after reading the reviews but we much prefer Ellys and wish there was palace like this near us in the UK.
Will be back

“Be sure you're hungry when you go here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Elly's serves the biggest plate of omelets and hash browns I've ever seen. And they have some amazing varieties also. And the fruit plate is a mountain. I really don't see how they can make a profit with all the food they feed you. And they also squeeze their own juices.
