Big Ole Egg Sandwich – Eggs and cheese served on a Kaiser roll, English Muffin or bagel
with Bacon, Ham or Sausage Patty
Breakfast Burrito – Two eggs, onions, peppers, tomatoes, cheddar cheese & black beans bundled in a tortilla with sour cream and salsa on the side.
Eggs Pope Benedict – Two poached eggs on a slab of ham with our Hollandaise sauce; on an English Muffin with homefries and total absolution of all your sins. Priceless, but for you,
The Florentine Pope: He comes from Florence, Massachusetts, so he is a vegetarian and is quite liberal in his views. Just like the Pope Benedict, but with spinach instead of ham.
Adam and Eve on a Futon under a Big, Fluffy Down Comforter – Two eggs over-easy snuggled up together between two pancakes. The Eggs Pope Benedict does not approve of this dish.
Adam after the Big Fight – One egg, however you want it, he doesn’t care, on one pancake.
Mount Saint Elmer’s – Two eggs over-easy with cheesey-homefries and choice of sausage or bacon all piled up on each others like little puppies. The toast goes on the side.
Early Like Willie Gray – When I first bought Elmer’s I called 80-year old Willie Gray to ask if he might help me paint it the next day. He said he had lots of chores, but would see if he had time after he finished. At 7:15 the next morning he called and said, “I’ve finished my chores. You still got any paintin’ to do?” 2 eggs, links or bacon, home fries, an English muffin & a silver-dollar pancake. But you gotta be here by 8:30 to get it, just like Willie.
The Meandering Don Stewart: Same thing as Willie’s breakfast, but you get to wander in at any hour and still get all that food. Comes with a side of celebrity trivia and no substitutions.
The Eggless-stential Life: Vegan homefries, spinach, black beans, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes
No Eggs, but a Goat Same as above, but with non-vegan Goat Cheese added
*We use as many home-grown eggs as we can, but we go through 1000 eggs a week and there aren’t that many chickens in Ashfield, so we supplement with regular eggs, grown elsewhere in New England as we must. And Lord have mercy, let us know if you are allergic to anything before you start ordering! We HATE to kill the customers! It keeps them from coming back!
Do you know that Yankee Magazine called these very pancakes the best in all of New England? A little kid said that Elmer’s was better than a Lego Store. Me, I just report the news. We got the recipe from Gray’s Sugarhouse and that’s why they’re so good. Now, because this is New England, we give you real, live maple syrup from Willie Gray’s own sugarhouse to go with them. Willie’s family still makes it. We just hand it over like it was cheap, which it is not. (Do you know it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup?!) So if you get too carried away, asking for a lot extra, we may have to charge you some for it, but we try to keep it nice and friendly by supplying it with the pancakes.
AND… We now have the technology to make really, really good gluten-free Pancakes! And I ain’t kidding—I ate two! Our Pal and Cook Joey eats gluten-free and he spearheaded the effort and it was successful! I hear from a number of gluten-free eaters that the hardest thing to find is GOOD gluten-free pancakes, but we got ‘em! We have to note here that we will attempt to keep all extraneous glutenous molecules out of those pancakes, but this is a kitchen that contains flour (and nuts and bananas and a number of other allergens.) But we are trying. Come in and try them.

Consuming raw or undercooked meats or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions. We would never let you do this to yourself if we could help it, but by law we must report it to you. And don’t forget to tell us if you or anyone in your party is allergic to anything! The State does not put up with you not doing that!
Come for dinner on Fridays. Not on Saturdays, unless it’s a special event. Do not put chewing gum in the cloth napkins. No screaming. No twirling on the poles lest you go careening off into the glass bakery case and then to the hospital. Don’t forget to pay for your bread. No bears at the tables. All swordfights must take place outside the store at a minimum of 50 paces away from the front door. No contretemps nor fisticuffs. No smoking or spitting. Swearing softly is allowed among friends.
