A very popular Poulsbo restaurant. Well managed, great staff, and plenty of tables and booths. Notable Breakast items--some with wonderfully chaotic calories. They tend to be slammed at Lunch hour--especially on weekends...but almost always can accommodate you quickly. A favorite of local families and seniors....but don't let that stop you. The food is good and plentiful.

We had a variety of items for breakfast, for me the Classic Eggs Benedict. They were perfectly prepared on a slice of Canadian bacon, with light, fluffy Hollandaise sauce. Service by Linnea was friendly and professional, appreciated on both accounts. We will return, as we have several times in the past.

I have been here about 5 times. Its normally okay. This past visit was not a good experience. Food was cold, service was slow and it wasn't that busy.

The only reason I go to Elmer's is the German pancake. Having said that, I lived in Germany on and off for nine years and never saw a German pancake like the one at Elmer's. It's huge. Comes with butter, powdered sugar and lemons. Some assembly required though. You do have to squeeze the lemons yourself - ask for extra... More

Fine for breakfasts but salads are mediocre for lunch. Large handsome building does not really match the Waffle House menu.

We've dined here numerous times; had breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff is friendly and attentive, although sometimes a bit slow. The food is not outstanding, but it is uniformly good. In short, a reliable place to get a decant meal.

Beautiful on the inside. Lots of parking. Nice meeting room in the back for business lunches. Service a bit slow if you are on the go. Convenient place to meet clients from out of town, before we look at homes.

Breakfast, atmosphere and service were all excellent. My wife and I both enjoyed our time there and intend to return. We shared the German pancake and chicken fried steak. The first chicken fried steak I ever enjoyed. Other diners in our area seemed to be enjoying themselves as well.

If you want biscuits and gravy, limp salad of basic lettuce and a bowl of Luke warm chilli this is the spot for you. Just basic bad American food.

My husband and I really enjoyed our breakfast. He had an omelet, salsa, sausage, bacon, and a homemade baking powder biscuit. I had a Dutch baby and side of thick cut, hickory smoked bacon. Delicious!
