I've been to Ellis Variety twice in the past 6 weeks. Reason?
OMG, THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS!
This variety store has a bakery and a restaurant located in the back. It is an all purpose place. It even sells gas. Friends and I Jane stopped here twice while snowmobiling. The meals are DELICIOUS and the price is low. I've had fish and chips, ribs with cole slaw and frys, and pie. Great pie. They have a bakery and the bread melts in your math. The grown up grilled cheese sandwiches, made with the homemade bread is, oh so good.
The best part? Leaving with a load of bread for home. $2.99 for a big loaf of bread. I habe had wheat, white and cinnamon raisin bread. Delicious!!!
