“Mother's Day breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

We made a reservation, but did wait a few minutes for a table. This didn't matter once we got our food. It was amazing! The attention to detail in taste, appearance and service was top notch. I had the crab and asparagus Benedict. Real crab meat was used, the Hollandaise sauce was perfect. A couple members of our party had omelets. Every bite contained ingredients, dont think they had any bites of only egg, wow! I could go on forever about the food. Our server was very attentive, even as busy as she was, and could even deal with my smart aleck husband. We will definitely be back.

“Quaint and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

For breakfast, this place was pretty darn good. The tables are a little crowded and small, but the coffee is hot and delicious. The homemade hash browns are perfect. The corned beef omelet got rave reviews at our table along with the homemade bread that was used for toast. Service is friendly and efficient.

“Great breakfast place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

My family went to the Elbo Room this morning for breakfast and will definitely be back! The cinnamon rolls are phenomenal and don't miss the homemade sausage. Very cute and quaint and the service was great too.

“Charming, welcoming, quaint, Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Lance's Elbo Room is excellent. Set overlooking the Kalamazoo & docks, this New England quaint establishment keeps your eyes wide and mouth watering. Everyday we vacation in Saugatuck, whether it's two weeks or longer, we have a meal at the Elbo Room. Breakfast is well worth waking up for. Sausage made there, farm fresh eggs, best pancakes ever, fresh preserves to go with their fresh breads & muffins, & those cinnamon rolls! Lunch and dinner are equally amazing. Fresh and most everything is made from scratch, with great service and views this is a must. Located next to the windmill. Enjoy!!!
