Great food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great service and friendly staff !! We usually stay at one of the hotels nearby, so end up there not just because of convenience, but because we love their food!!!More

I stopped in for lunch after the trolley tour and ordered the Yukon French toast. Beyond yummy. Worth every calorie! Elmer's clearly is popular with the locals (always a good sign) because it was crowded when I came in and crowded when I left.More
