I go to Elmer's in Albany once a month for a breakfast meeting. The service is so friendly and attentive. They understand customer service. The food is good and hot. I would like a little more attention to local ingredients and sustainability, but that doesn't dampen the experience. Go there for breakfast.

We were here for breakfast two days in a row and the service was incredible! The food came quickly, the servers filled the coffee cup numerous times, and the food was delicious! You could tell that the ingredients were fresh and locally grown. Even the fruit was spot on!!! I would recommend this place with no hesitation whatsoever. Enjoy!

We had been away from home for 2 weeks, got back 2 days before Thanksgiving, no time to prepare the feast and no family or friends to go to. Had a great dinner at Elmer's with enough for another dinner the next day. Love left over Thanksgiving !

We went at 10:30am on a Saturday morning and had to wait about 20 minutes before a table was available. Staff was very friendly and kept our coffee, water, and iced tea full. All three of us enjoyed our meals. I tried the German pancakes with Apple topping. It was big and very tasty. I had planned on taking part... More

Elmer's is a great restaurant. The one in Albany, Oregon seats you according to your preference and the delicious food comes out quickly, just as you ordered. The food is not gourmet, but it's great American food!

Elmer's is a great standard breakfast fare, with generous portions and good food. It is crazy on Sunday mornings, but the staff are still polite and cheery.

Thank Julie P
