Hard to find tasty buckwheat pancakes were very good & cost around $10. Nice diner with a friendly, spacious, & clean atmosphere. I walked only a few yards from the country suites hotel at 6am.

Randomly found this place on Google maps while searching for diners in Chicago suburbs on our weekend trip up here. Plenty of parking! Decor: unpretentious and unassuming. Fancier than your average diner without feeling overstuffy. Service: everyone was polite and prompt. It wasn't super busy but the server did take a while to return for anything. I just wanted more...

This was our favourite breakfast/brunch location, just a few minutes walk from the hotel. An extensive, American style diner menu, was plentiful, well cooked and presented and served with great style by all the waiting staff that served us. Cannot speak too highly!

Fast friendly service. Excellent coffee. I had the breakfast quesadilla and it was fantastic. My husband had the eggs and bacon, but that's pretty standard. Highly recommended!

My coworkers and I love going to Elly's during our lunch hour; service is always fast and good and it satisfies breakfast or lunch food cravings. I love their chorizo skillet or Spartan (spinach, mushrooms, feta cheese) omelette; the hash browns that accompany them are fresh and yummy. You get either a side of pancakes or toast; the pancakes are... More

Elly's Pancake House was close to our hotel, so we gave it a try. The inside of the place was nice, but our waitress looked and acted like she was cleaning a toilet. Very unpleasant. We asked for water and got hot water. Who drinks hot water with breakfast? I ordered the Club #1. The eggs were good, and the... More

My Seniors Sunday School class all went together for a Sunday Brunch at Ellys. The staff was expecting us, so they had arranged several tables to fit the size of our group. Our orders were taken swiftly and the food served hot and quicker than expected. Even though a couple of the orders were mixed up, the problem was resolved... More
