A quintessential American breakfast experience, with some nice additions to classic menu to keep things interesting. Staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Everything was fairly priced. Apparently dinner is coming soon, I hope not at the expense of their breakfast expertise.

We would go here again just for the bread. Try the sourdough rye toast with your breakfast! Superb! The service was slow but the quality of the food certainly made upper it. We were on holiday so weren't in a hurry. We would return again.

Ella's is probably the best restaurant for breakfast on the west side of the city. It doesn't except reservations and The lines on the weekend can be long, so come early to get a table.

The food was average and the prices were very good considering the fact that we were on the pier. The view was great.
