Fodor's Review

Once upon a time, Ellen's Kitchen was a breakfast and lunch place inside Silver's Drug Store at First and Atlantic, a long-time landmark where locals came to salve their hangovers. Silver's is no more, and Ellen's long ago relocated to a shopping strip, but it's still an institution, and probably will be for generations. It's also a great place to bring the kids, thanks to the kid-friendly menu, very reasonable prices, and relaxed atmosphere. Sure, you can get your eggs over easy and your bacon crisp, but if you want to be mistaken for a local, ask for a Hippie or a Surfer, two poached-egg-on-English-muffin creations. If it's hollandaise sauce you're craving, the crab cake Benedict is brunch perfection. Breakfast is served until the doors close at 2 pm, but the lunch menu is also fairly extensive. Don't expect too much chat from your server at "rush hour" on weekend mornings—everyone's usually working at warp speed. Regardless, though, the staffers do their best to please, no matter how crowded.
