Ellen's Bakery & Cafe is more cafe, than bakery. Ever since MF&S
relocated to Portland, Ellen's has been my go-to place for soups.
In late 2012, Ellen's began opening for breakfast. Somehow, it never
entered into our weekend breakfast spot rotation. Based on this
morning's visit, Ellen's has earned a primary spot.
While I LOVE the flavors at Frittata (Clawson), Cafe Cafe Muse (RO)
and Recipes (Troy), they are not as near as I would like ... and the
nearby choices (Breakfast Club, Scrambler, Roberto's, etc) underachieve
when it comes to freshness and flavors.
Ellen's did a darned good job this morning with regard to fresh
ingredients and flavors. Their breakfast service is not (yet?) operating
at the same level as my favorites, but given time, they may indeed rise
to that level.
If you're in the area, consider Ellen's for breakfast.
