I eat here often and enjoy the family feel of this comfortable spot. Bakery goods and great breakfasts make this an enjoyable morning. I love their homemade bread and sausage gravy with biscuit.

We heard great things about Elaine's and decided to try it. We loved the homemade donuts! Our favorite was the blueberry glazed and chocolate glazed.

It's friendly, clean and the food is delicious. Great breakfast menu means everyone can find something they love.

The donuts are all made from scratch, are cake style and big! I had the blueberry and enjoyed it. Didn't try anything else.

It took a long time to get coffee, have our order taken and for the food to arrive. We asked for (both orders the same) eggs over medium, bacon, home fries and toast. 1 order of eggs was cooked to order, the other order (did I mention that we had the same order?) was over ..... very easy.

This is the best place to get breakfast in town. They do best with the bakery related products. I have the french toast which is great. The bacon on the other hand tends to be very thin and over cooked kind of like the stuff you get at a chain hotel breakfast bar. The biggest problem with this place is... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, ate breakfast at Elaine's 3 times over the Labor Day weekend. We've eaten here many times before and have always enjoyed the food. However, on 2 of these 3 visits the service from the wait staff was so poor that we left each time feeling aggravated. On each visit it took far... More

Great donuts and baked goods. The service was even better I arrived 15 minutes after they stopped serving breakfast but they asked what I would like and were willing to make it even if it did mean staying late.
