We have lived in Punta Gorda for twenty years and Eleana's South Restaurant is one of our favorite breakfast haunts. We are early risers and if I'm not in the mood to make breakfast it's not too far from PGI. Especially when you know the food they serve is so good and very reasonable too. They also have these wonderful... More

Great gyros & salads, friendly staff a little pricey. Good portions and location. Always busy, but never over crowded.

This place has excellent breakfast. My husband had a breakfast burrito with hash browns and a side of biscuits and gravy and I had pancakes an egg and sausage all reasonably priced and it's delicious. If you're in the Punta Gorda area you must try it for yourself you won't be disappointed

I have since moved away from Punta Gorda but I will always remember Elena's for the best breakfast and service in town. It is a comfortable place to go for a single person with the booths and friendly staff. Don't forget to order the spanakopita for your lunch or dinner. You won't be sorry.

Large menu selection for every meal. Great deals for seniors. Usually enough food to take some home for a small meal.

Very busy, but waited only 10 minutes for my table. The decor is average but acceptable for what you pay; it is clean, and I found the staff to be friendly. Lots of local retirees. I had chicken soup with a bread roll starter, lamb shank with broccoli and a starch, very tastefully prepared for under $10. Their breakfasts are... More

Great end for our vacation. We had eaten at several places during our week and everyone one of us was pleased with the meal. I can't say the same for the other places. You will not be disappointed. Service was a little slow, but in there defense it was pretty busy.

Everything we have got here has been really good. Service and prices are good here too. Home style cooking and a relaxed atmosphere. We were told about this place in March and have been back quite a few times. Has become one of our favorite spots to eat here.
