Thick, fluffy pancakes, and strawberry blintzes were both outstanding. There was a huge and varied menu, with lots of appetizing selections. This is a fairly large restaurant, so I don't think there would be much wait at any time. Our server was very friendly and...More

Such a cute place. It is also very clean and inviting. Plates on the wall are beautiful. Pancakes are delish. Daughter had a skillet and it was enough for two grown adults.

We've been here 15-20 times since they first opened. The food is not terrible but certainly not great in my opinion. My issue is that the breakfast is somewhat pricey and the portions have shrunk...... So I'm going to numerous other places in the vicinity...More

We're regulars here! They have freshly made orange juice, green juices and smoothies. I love their avocado bacon omelette, corned beef hash, thin French toast. My husband likes their minced eggs and ham as well as whatever fancy pancake special they're offering. Very child friendly....More

Elly's Pancake House does not serve cappucino at the Cumberland Ave. location in Norridge, BUT, they do serve it at the one at Milwaukee Ave. & Foster Ave., as that store has a full coffee bar.
