The service and atmosphere is of a small town diner. People are friendly, service good and food is ok. Taking them a little while to get their nitche and finally achieving that. Always improving. Do not seem to hurry you out.

We visited the Ellenton Mall and were looking for a place for lunch. We saw all the fast food places nearby and then saw a small sign for the Ellenton Café. What a wonderful delight of a local restaurant serving home made food at very reasonable prices. My wife had a vegetarian omelet and I have the turkey dinner. Both... More

We went to this café for years before it was sold. At first, after the new owners took over, the food changed and was not as good. Recently, we've returned to give it another try and the food is much better. Looks like the new owners are getting the hang of it.

I never stopped here before despite driving by quite often and using the post office next door a lot! I was on my way to an appointment so I ordered "to go", but I did sit down outside at their tables to "dress" my bagel. The coffee here is fantastic. I don't like it too strong where it gives you...

Great breakfast (and lunch), friendly service, low prices, daily specials. Has it all. Eggs always cooked as ordered. I like my bacon crisp, and they do it just right for me. Not fine dining, but really good comfort food. We are here almost every Sunday, especially when the snowbirds are gone. In the winter, you have to wait for a... More

When in Florida and visiting friends nearby or when at the Ellenton Outlet mall, we always visit this local diner. The home cooked meals beat fast food places anytime! Good prices food, and service, clean and friendly!

Just a good little Mom & Pop place for breakfast. Try an omelet and have them put the hash browns inside. Yum!!! Not a chain. Not institutional "all the same" food like the chains tend to produce. Home cooking, friendly faces.
