Elly's offers a wide selection of breakfast and lunch/dinner fare. Make sure to bring your appetite as the portions are generous

I've eaten at the Elly's restaurant on Milwaukee Ave near ABT, on Cumberland Avenue just south of I-90, and here in Mundelein. If this was a greasy spoon diner, I'd probably think better of the food - or not! I've eaten at Elly's three times now and I think this is the most uninspiring breakfast place I've eaten at in...

This place attracts lot of people everyday morning, and we took our kids for Sunday breakfast there. You can not go wrong with pancakes :), and nice service along with great ambience just add to it. Great place to take your family and kids there.

We visited for a quick bite to eat on a weekday, we were seated and had our food within 20 minutes. Coffee is good, waitress kept it hot. Spartan omelette is delicious.

A group of us meet once a month for lunch at Elly's. Laura is our steady waitress for our group. She is amazing if you can get her. The food is cooked properly and very tasty. Prices have increased and portion control has kicked in. I have had breakfast with friends at Elly's. Pancakes and Crepes are yummy.

I love this place. Even when it's busy you don't have to wait that long. The service is always great. The food comes out hot, fresh, and fast. The OJ is fresh squeezed. Everything is the way it should be. A great experience from start to finish and on the cheap.

Have eaten here many times over the last 8 years. Always find the food good and service quick and friendly. On the weekends it is busy and you may have to wait 10 minutes for a table. Usual tab for breakfast is about $13-15 with tip.

I had been visiting Ellis for the last 15 years. Years ago was the best breakfast place in the whole Lake county. Today is average, doesn't means that the others improved to their level, Ellis lowered their bar. Service still OK, but portions and price aren't the same
