On our first morning while in the area on vacation we by-passed the normal hotel breakfast and headed to Chelly's Cafe. The earlier Trip Advisor reviews were spot on and this little treasure in a small strip mall would be a regular stop for us if we lived in the area. The breakfast menu has many choices and food is...

My mom and I went here for the first time and loved it. The food was excellent and the staff was attentive. We each had an item off of the special's board. She had the Artichoke Scramble and I had Chocolate Chip pancakes. My mom had one of their homemade muffins with her breakfast and she loved it. We plan... More

This is a great little cozy diner that's really nice to go to for breakfast. My go to breakfast is the green chilaquiles, it's hot but it's good . They also have a more mild version.Another good breakfast they have is Ham steak with grits and two poached eggs. The people that work there are very nice and accommodating.

Wonderful breakfast! Cozy diner, tables, no booths. Really good, in-house made muffins. Scrambles have been really good. Go early on weekends or plan on a bit of a wait.

If you're looking for a weekend breakfast get here early. Although it's a small restaurant, it is large in value. Friendly staff and good cooks, they don't mind the substitutes. Food comes out quick and hot. I enjoyed the omelette and daughter enjoyed the Eggs Benedict. All in all a very good experience.

This place is always full- but you never have to wait. Great homemade food and great atmosphere. Very clean and servers are very friendly. Must try their homemade muffins. The bran/honey are the best

We stumbled across this place as we were heading south from Death Valley to Los Angeles. It was a real find, all too often on this sort of trip you end up in a Denny's or a Taco Bell so it was great to find a small independent place. I had the fried chicken, the batter was wonderfully crisp. Service... More

Tried breakfast for the first time. Eggs Benedict was good, found the hash browns to be salty. Wait staff was attentive but not very friendly.

A variety of high quality menu choices, and welcoming efficient service make Chelly's our favorite breakfast out.
