Homey American comfort-food spot bustling at breakfast & weekend brunch, but with no dinner service.- Google
"Amazing pancakes, Fresh squeezed orange juice, jam, and wheat toast."
"Definitely order the chicken hash."

Potatoes, eggs and pancakes were good. Homemade sausage was difficult to cut and eat.... and this place is way overpriced. Three of us ate breakfast and it cost a little over $50. Would not eat here again!

Very popular brunch place in chi-chi neighborhood, with animated social atmosphere on sidewalk for waiting diners. Appearances are attractive, but my experience was ugly, quite opposite to what I had expected. Beyond disappointment, I was baffled that anyone would ever go there again after their first experience! Yes, that bad. To critique my Eggs Benedict, the sauce was broken, with distinct clumps, a true no-no to a competent chef. There was no Canadian bacon, just a mundane ham slice. Instead of the traditional English muffin, they chose a rather nice biscuit , which was tasty, but inappropriaely sweet for balancing the dish. The plates were cold, and so were most of the abundance of potatoes. The table "salsa" was simple ketchup. Finally, the ambience of upscale fashion was overwhelmed by harsh noise, such that "conversation" required much projection over the din. Like I said, I really don't understand why anyone would go back there.

Chicken Hash? Sticky Buns? Try Chicken/potato mush, and hard crusted petrified bread. Every thing we tasted seemed out of a box and processed. Everything could have done better at home. There seems to be a lot of hype in Ella's. I like the set and the feel but the food was a major let down. I base all my reviews off of do I recommend it or not. Not stars or any of that trash. This is a definite no recommendation.

This place is phenomenal. The biscuits are fluffy and their homemade jam is excellent. They have a number of interesting choices with eggs, like an avocado fried egg sandwich or an omelette with crab and asparagus. The wait can be very long on the weekends.

Fast friendly, amazing food. Spicy polenta and pulled pork hash were filling but not heavy. Wonderful, can't wait to try more of the menu.

There is always a wait at this place but the breakfast food and brunch menu is totally worth it. Its nice and cozy at this place unless you're waiting near the door for your seat then its a bit gusty in that area. Definitely order the chicken hash. I believe their pancakes change on a daily or weekly basis. They had a banana walnut one once that was absolutely divine.

I really, really want to love Ellla's, but I just don't. I try something new every time and am always slightly disappointed. Last time I had the fried egg sandwich and the bread was not great and the potatoes were cold. Am I just ordering the wrong dish? I may try something sweet rather than savory next time I go.
