We've been here 15-20 times since they first opened. The food is not terrible but certainly not great in my opinion. My issue is that the breakfast is somewhat pricey and the portions have shrunk...... So I'm going to numerous other places in the vicinity for far better omlette's and pancakes.

We're regulars here! They have freshly made orange juice, green juices and smoothies. I love their avocado bacon omelette, corned beef hash, thin French toast. My husband likes their minced eggs and ham as well as whatever fancy pancake special they're offering. Very child friendly. We're here at 7:30am so we don't deal with crowds😀

We were a Sunday morning party of 14 on the weekend before Christmas and.....not a problem! We were seated at one (long) table, our breakfast selections were served in a timely manner, and every one of us enjoyed what we had. I had eggs and sausage and two pancakes, and everything was delicious. Most of us had some variation of... More

A group of about 15 of us went to Elly's Pancake House in Norridge to meet for a pre-Christmas breakfast. The staff was very accommodating, as we were able to sit together, even though it was one of those busy pre-Christmas shopping days. Everyone found the food to their liking. I ordered a tuna melt with coleslaw and it was... More

Before we went downtown Chicago to check in at the hotel, we stopped by Ellis for breakfast. The staff was so friendly and the food was excellent and abundant!

Attending a conference from out of town and did not want to eat at the hotel, Found this location, Sounded good. They opened at 6:00 AM, which was good (since we were still on East Coast time, we were hungry) I am just going to put it out there..... The pancakes were terrible. Just awful. They were dry, crumbly and... More

We were trying to find somewhere decent and not super expensive to eat breakfast at before attending a conference. We took a cab to Elly's. It was a great choice! Good prices and comes with tons of food! The ham for breakfast was very lean and flavorful! Pancakes were thick and sweet! We are glad we used trip advisor to... More

This is a great regular breakfast place. Nothing fancy. Quick service with good food. There's sometimes a wait on the weekends but nothing too crazy. Bonus - they have fresh squeezed OJ!

With a large group (12) on a Thursday for breakfast we had great service, couldn't have asked for better. Every body's dishes looked great and everyone agreed they were delish. We ordered one of the oven baked pancakes as soon as we sat down so we could split it and just about everyone at the table got a slice, it's... More

Great food and excellent service. We had eggs benny and Oli omelette (yamm!). They also serve freshly squeezed juice. The food is very good and portions are generous. Much recommended.
