I had breakfast here after camping at the Medora Campground. The thing I liked the most about this restaurant is the interesting owner. She has an incredible background with many fascinating stories to tell. Oh, and the food is excellent and fairly priced!

Breakfast before leaving town, service was distracted and inconsistent, food filled the void, but eh.

Had breakfast and it was good.. Nothing special but a solid breakfast. We had an omelet and pancakes. They charge two dollars for a shared meal and fifty cents for a take out box. Not a big fan of those kind of charges..

Food was good but service was extremity slow and they were not even that busy. A little pricey for what you get. Good once but would not revisit

The menu is fairly basic. All our food came out hot and fresh. For basic fair, it was all good. Pricing is about what to expect in a tourist trap town. The decor is very basic. They need a "Please wait to be seated" sign and could improve their customer greetings/interactions.

Good food, prices are a little high but that's all of Medora. Food was good and service was friendly, clean restaurant. Normal cafe type menu, burgers, fries, sandwiches.

Good food. Bad costumer service. Waitresses were rude. They lost 4 costumers while we were there. They yelled WAIT TO BE SEATED!

We are stunned at how bad the customer service was at Elkhorn Cafe. We watched the staff yell at patrons- from a woman asking for a penny to put in a souvenir machine outside the door, to a man who sat down at a table where someone had left a Starbucks cup. ("you can't bring that in here- the health... More

Not many places to eat in Medora, but luckily this place is there. It is a family restaurant. Our party consisted of 9 folks. We were seated and served right away. Some of our group had breakfast. I had a fish sandwich and Cole slaw. It was decent. All of our group was satisfied with the cafe.

My wife and I went here for breakfast. Service was prompt. Food came fast. We had eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, and gravy. Delicious. Enough said. A bit on the pricey side, but there are only so many choices in this town. I should note that the coffee was weak, but that seemed to be common everywhere else in town we... More
