“Top Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

From fresh squeezed juice to pancakes that melt in your mouth, this place just rocks! For those who want healthy foods, this place has quite a variety of offerings. They also have a lot of incredibly tasty full fat and sugar foods for those who can enjoy them. Great place to go with the family and friends. Prices are very reasonable.

“Nice change of pace for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We were staying nearby at the Best Western on Lake Ave. and were sick and tired of hotel continental breakfasts after a week on the road, so we looked for a nearby place for breakfast. Since there were no IHOPs or other national chains nearby, we took a chance on Elly's Pancake House based on all of the positive reviews. We need not have worried. The place is immaculately clean, the service staff is very professional, and the food was wonderful. All of our dishes were excellent and prepared exactly to order. Everything that was supposed to be served hot was hot and everything that was supposed to be served cold was cold. The fresh squeezed OJ was the best treat of all. None of us could remember the last time we had had it.

Elly's comes highly recommended. Stop in when in Glenview when you need a change of pace for breakfast.

“Good for breakfast and lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We usually go there on Sunday mornings with friends. Usually there is a short wait, but the service and food are very good once you are seated. Great selection of eggs and pancakes, but they stopped using double yoked eggs which were a favorite with the kids. I had a surprising good lunch recently, a cantaloupe filled with delicious albacore tuna salad. Coffee is refilled before you have to ask which is a nice touch.

“Nice breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

I had the italian sausage skillet w/pancakes, hubby had meat lovers skillet w/pancakes, other guest had fruit plate and breakfast club with french toast. The highs - fresh squeezed OJ, the coffee and french toast were big winners at our table. The lows - pancakes were cold, we had to constantly ask server to not reach over us to serve, once she dropped water on my wrist from the side of the container; luckily it wasn't dropped into my food. #petpeeve
