“Reliable place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Good selection of breakfast items which can be tailored to your appetite and preferences (smaller portions, egg substitutes, etc.). Not gourmet but probably better than most folks cook for themselves.

“Great service~”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Cheap but good food and fine service, with free WiFi. Much better than the golden arches. This would be a good place for lunch or breakfast.

“Our first visit: good for food, not for conversation”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We have been to other Elmer's for over 20 years, but this was our first visit to the one on SE Stark, near Mall 205. Location and parking are excellent. We had fresh strawberry crepes for lunch and were very pleased. The strawberries were sweet, not drowned in a syrup like too many places do. One of our group had a "small" Cobb salad, which was anything but small. Fish & Chips was made with excellent cod. The service, cleanliness and food were super, but there was so much noise coming from a group of 6 adults sitting behind us, we had a great deal of difficulty hearing the couple sitting across from us in a booth.

“Good but nothing special”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Decent comfort food, cheddar biscuits very good. Did lunch 1st day, dinner the next. Convenient to the Ramada across the street. Service was quick both times and met all needs. Happy pleasant staff. Seems to be frequented by the older crowd and quiet children. No trouble conversing at normal volume.

“Cleanest Elmer's in Portland”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stopped in this Elmer's for a light brunch, but ended up eating way too much. My daughter, who lives in Portland, told us "this is the cleanest Elmer's in Portland." The menu offers a bunch of breakfast/lunch/dinner items (think Denny's). We settled on a German pancake, a breakfast of eggs/biscuits&gravy/hash browns, and pancakes. Service was a bit slow (this was at 10 am so the morning rush should have been over and the lunch rush not yet started) but the food was worth the wait. Our only regret was that we were so full we had no room for dessert.
