Eggs Benedict are always a favorite here, but we have never had anything we didn't like. Cozy little place with okay-friendly staff, but you are definitely treated differently if you are a regular.

Elmer's had great food and big portions. All three boys had plenty to eat, and the service was great. We were able to get right in on a Sunday morning. It is right across the street from the Idaho State campus.

Wanted breakfast in the afternoon and eggs cooked perfectly, and hash browns and sausage were delicious. Ordered a short stack of pancakes and they were just as good. Never had a bad meal here.More
