Five of us were there Saturday morning. Because the servings are large, we only ordered four breakfasts. We had two orders of green eggs and ham (scrambled eggs with pesto, potatoes, ham and toast), french toast with baked apples and french toast with peaches. We split the items and all were filled and loved every dish. If you haven't been... More

You can always get a delicious breakfast at Ellen's. They make all of their pastries in house daily. I especially like their seafood omelets and the delicious raisin Walnut bread toasted. Excellent coffee. friendly staff. You won't be disappointed.

We've been in the area for almost 2 years now and only now got around to trying here. The place was beautiful and there was so much good smelling food and the baked goods looked delicious! We both chose omelets and they were delicious! I loved their eclectic selections. It's the type of place I want to visit again and... More

You know you have found a gem when the thought of going there lights up your day. Ellen's is that place for me. The food is fresh and tasty. One of my favorites is the Beast breakfast plate...yummy! Often I buy the charming sugar cookies to give to various people. Now they get so excited when I bring in a... More

I have only eaten breakfast here but on several occasions and it's always excellent. You help yourself to a variety of coffees but they also offer cappucino, latte, etc. and lots of different tea. The breakfast ranges from porridge to eggs, omelettes, pancakes - everything you could wish for. Their breads (challah in particular) are fantastic and they have lovely... More

I've tried almost every recommended breakfast place in the Detroit area but nothing compares to Ellen's. Everything is fresh and the pastries are to die for. We have become regulars because the food is just that good. You may have to wait and service can be slow. But be patient. The experience will have you return over and over.

We eat here often and I almost don't want to write a review because it is one of the best kept secrets around. Although it is a pastry shop which they do very well, the breakfast and lunch is probably the best around. The food quality is very high, very fresh in a small, friendly environment. Everything on the menu... More

Great little spot with excellent food selections that provide flavor for the plain to picky palate. Great combinations for salads and sandwiches and the best breakfasts around. The desserts all look amazing (I am allergic to gluten so I abstain)

My friend and I met here for breakfast . The menu offered a huge variety of oatmeal dishes, unique omelet creations and egg dishes. Freshly baked sweet goods fill the glass case . We were first invited to pour our own coffees from a huge variety of flavor so and brew strengths. We dined on Green Eggs and Ham and... More
