I did enjoy my meal, but I found it a tad bit expensive! I booked in advance, and there was no one there, i asked the waitress and she told me that they haven't been that busy for about a year. When I read the accompanying reviews, I think I get it?! It is a bit pricey. I has a very cheap looking, kind of tacky decor. That was part of the charm, a cheap, bistro with gourmet quality food. One of those elements isn't there anymore....and they haven't changed the decor.

I was but a few short years ago when cafeteria's banished crappy food: cold hashbrowns made from frozen, powdered hot chocolate, overcooked scrambled eggs, but the Elbow Room gave me a nostalgic experience! Brought guests from out of town, paid $9.00 for bacon and eggs which were cold! A little brown cup of cold diced hashbrowns get real! The waitress discouraged us from ordering hot chocolate because it was the 'cheap' stuff from an envelope. Wake up Elbow Room! You are surrounding by exceptional restaurants with quality fresh ingredients. The fruit omelette arrived with canned pineapple; if you are going to be so gusty as to create a menu item like this, hit it out of the park or don't bother. My scrambled eggs were overcooked and kind of spread all over the plate, without care. Your food, and schitk are about as old as the photos on the wall. You are a candidate for Kitchen Nightmares, I can here Gordon Ramsey yelling at you already - out of your best selling bread at 10am?! cold food?! Cheap hot chocolate?! Watery, crappy cheap coffee?! Canned, unfresh food/!
Some good things don't last, or do they just fail to keep up with all the progress surrounding them?
