Elmer's is a classic comfort food restaurant serving breakfast, lunch & dinner. The ambience is nothing special but the friendly staff do a very nice job. The menu offers many varied items to choose from. If you go home hungry, it is your own fault.

Haven't been here except for breakfast, and if you like a good Dutch Baby, this is the place.....Normal egg breakfast dishes are good, but about he same scale as Denny's or Shari's. The hashbrowns are better, but a little mushy (because they are so thick). But it's one of our go-to places when we eat breakfast out....

When in doubt about breakfast when visiting a new town, you will rarely go wrong with Elmer's. I was pleased to have my generalization confirmed once again. Excellent food with excellent service.

We always stop at Elmers when we are in Hillsboro. My favorite is their fish and chips! Others in our party like the crepes with fruit.. It is overall a great atmosphere with good food!

The hash browns were barely cooked on the inside and not at all crispy on the outside; my English muffin was white and Un toasted-- not even warm. Room temperature bread. The eggs were ok but the plate was too small. I had to ask twice for a refill of my coffee and it took 5 minutes. And it wasn't... More

Pancakes were good, eggs Benedict were forgettable. Service was pretty slow, we were still getting drinks after the food arrived and anything extra we ordered we had to ask for twice.

My favorite spot for breakfast. Arrive early if you don't like crowds. Good coffee and fresh OJ. I also love omelettes here and the pancakes.

Very traditional fare, but a lot to choose from. Staff is very friendly. The have a full bar if you are into that. Breakfast on Sundays plan ahead, there is always a wait.
