It is far better than your average breakfast/brunch/lunch chain (i.e. Denny's or IHOP). Fair prices & family friendly place.More

Featured Northwest favorites include Boyd's Coffee, Oregon Marionberry syrup, Tillamook cheese, and sausages from Portland-based Zenner's Sausage Company. Many Guests happily enhance their morning meal with a refreshing Mimosa. While the food is a star in its own right, it's the service that makes customers smile. Led by local owner, Jacky Donnell, the genuine, friendly team at Palm Springs Elmer's delights in welcoming desert locals as well as Northwest snowbirds craving a taste of home. They are proud of the reputation they have built as a local favorite. In addition to local Best Breakfast awards, Guests at Palm Springs Elmer's rave about their experiences on Yelp! and TripAdvisor. Elmer's has also received national recognition in the category of Family Restaurants with high marks on four main attributes consisting of taste, value, service and mood.
