Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Elmer's attracts not just people visiting Ashfield (there is an Inn across the street) but local population.

It has the best New England Clam Chowder.... More

A visit to this area of New England (western Massachusetts) is not complete without a visit to this local restaurant--expect long lines on the weekend. One of the reasons is the title of this review as said by Yankee Magazine. The special ambiance here is so unique in this former country store plus seeing the locals who dine here--many are... More

Well-loved local restaurant for good reasons: the food is great and the ambiance is fun. We went for breakfast. I had eggs, homefries and a lovely homemade southern style biscuit - all cooked as I like them. My friend had pancakes which I helped him finish. They were just the right consistency and the maple syrup was fresh. There were... More

We went to Elmer's Store today for breakfast. I was really looking forward to it since several people I know highly recommended it for the breakfast menu. I was sadly disappointed in our experience. We were seated very quickly which we appreciated. The person who seated us also asked if we wanted drinks, also quick. Coffee and tea, which came... More

You can find basically anything you need or forgot to bring here, but aside from that you can also find some unique/organic/local items. If I remember correctly, they had some good wines/sweets, etc.

Elmer's seems to be a favorite with the locals, and it has the comfortable feeling of a small-town general store. Food is fresh, prices are reasonable, furnishings are well-worn. We were here for breakfast, so we didn't have a chance to sample the full menu. Coffee was good, and the homemade raspberry preserves were terrific.

The menu is the first hint about how special this place is. All kinds of eggs, plain and fancy, supreme pancakes, home made breads, fine coffee. It's all there.
