Whether or not you are taking the train from Glenside or arriving at the station, or just in the neighborhood, this is a nice place for a great cup of coffee. Lovely counter staff, delicious pastries, etc. Down home atmostphere with some table seating inside and out.

My wife and I enjoy drinking coffee in the mornings and like supporting local businesses. Elcy's has some great roasts to select from. We are big fans of Forbidden Drive and always have a big bag of their grounds that we use to make our coffee. Devil's Pool is also great.

Great Breakfast sandwiches, and coffee. It's a nice grab and eat restaurant at the train station. Problem is sometimes its hard to park because the train station if full of cars. Dare I say park across the street and run over! Its worth it!

I expected more personality......and an interest in my choices/decision to purchase. I picked it to be a first date, on line meet up point.

Really cozy spot for breakfast or lunch. Their egg scramble are so good. Service is efficient and friendly. Different menu items. A great place to hang as they don't hurry you out.

Elcy's is known for great coffee but also for the lunch options. Ate there last week and my wife and I each had a tasty sandwich. Hers a cuban panini and mine a hot ham and cheese with exceptional taste balance with the condiments. My only complaint is that it used to be served on a croissant, my favorite sandwich... More

Nice coffee shop/bistro. Get the gourmet coffee and any of their signature menu items. Stay away from the bagels and muffins. They are not made on premises. Great if you are in a hurry or want the morning to linger.

Thank Chuck G
