Nothing special to have here. Basic diner food, ok atmosphere, service was a little slow. My table was left u cleaned after asking twice if it could be wiped down.... Finally just did it myself. Probably would not go back.

Always liked Elena's for lunches and we decided to try them for breakfast. They make the BEST biscuits & gravy in the south. We even bought some to take home with us. FANTASTIC.

Comfort food go to place. Good food. Generous portions and reasonable prices. Did I mention attentive service (the owners are ALWAYS) there! This is our Sunday breakfast go to. Greek dishes are very good. Try the Greek Salad Gyro platter (Greek salad with gyro meat), a satisfying meal by itself.

We have lived in Punta Gorda for twenty years and Eleana's South Restaurant is one of our favorite breakfast haunts. We are early risers and if I'm not in the mood to make breakfast it's not too far from PGI. Especially when you know the food they serve is so good and very reasonable too. They also have these wonderful... More

Great gyros & salads, friendly staff a little pricey. Good portions and location. Always busy, but never over crowded.

This place has excellent breakfast. My husband had a breakfast burrito with hash browns and a side of biscuits and gravy and I had pancakes an egg and sausage all reasonably priced and it's delicious. If you're in the Punta Gorda area you must try it for yourself you won't be disappointed
