It is one of the pricier breakfast spots, and, since remodeling, they have obviously raised their prices and reduced their portion size by about 1/3.

I went here today for breakfast. It was my first time here. The parking lot was full. Good sign. I went in and I was greeted by a hostess who seated me in a two person. The booth was comfortable. Lots of choices on the menu. I decided on the waffles with caramelized apples and pecans. It was very good.... More

It seems to me that I had been to an Elly's Pancake house years ago. Its lack of proximity to where I live is the main reason I had not been back. The other day, however, I decided to head to the Glenview site when I was in the area. My wife and I were not disappointed. We had a... More

Nice place for breakfast, although they have lunch foods, I like their crepes so much I have never eaten lunch.

Our server was accommodating as a few people had special request such as swapping waffles for pancakes, and ordering lunch items for breakfast. I ordered the Frittata skillet with... More
