Last time I went to Elaine's it was in the old home down the street. She has expanded her business, flawlessy and has the same excellent home cooked food and baked goods. I enjoyed delicious food and perfect portions in her new building, with my best friend who bought fresh donuts to go!

I must say we have never had a bad meal here. The waitress are so attentive to all. Donuts are to die for .

Andrew Lagasse

It is great food

Phyllis Sprague

The food and coffee are very good, but they're usually understaffed. Don't go when you're in a hurry. The new dining room adds a lot of seating. The place has a nice atmosphere overall. The best place in town for breakfast, unless you're in a hurry and then Dunkin Donuts in Tradewinds Market is the only quick choice.

Went there today, The place had no seating left which I assumed was a good sign. We weren’t sure if we were supposed to seat ourselves or be seated by them so we stood there and the two girls at the register did not acknowledge us. We walked up to the side dining room and there was one small table that had not been cleaned so we moved back to the registers and were again not acknowledged. the girl went out back then came back to the front and said someone will clean a table off for us. The tables were too small to seat 5 so we waited for a second table to be cleaned so they could be put together, which was nice. We finally sat down and noticed in the full room of people only one table had food. We heard the couple at the table next to ours stop the waitress and ask if the food they had been waiting for could be changed to “to go” We asked the couple how long they had been waiting for their food and it had been an hour and a half. In fairness they said that it is not usually like that. We decided to leave at that point. I felt badly but we didn’t have time to wait that long and we felt ignored The food did look really good though.

Elaines's is Great. Nice food, donuts and homemade style bread. Their service is worth traveling many mile to go to. Many of my cousens and I love to go there for a visit.

Eva Lambert

Cleanest restaurant I have ever eaten at. Plus awesome bakery goods.

Jody Winship

Worst expierance I have EVER had. Went for breakfast with 3 other people on a Saturday morning. We were the 4th table to sit out of 8 tables with people. 3 servers on duty. Waited over a 1/2 hour just for someone to show up and take our orders (I found a coffee pot and served my self and my group coffee 15 minutes in) then took another 45 minutes on food to arrive (just as we were getting up to leave) with no eggs were sunny side up-i ordered over medium, my toast was white and extremely tough- I ordered wheat, the bacon was ok, my home fries were seasoned with pepper--i don't eat pepper. I would not even recommend this place to a starving rat. One of the servers was wearing burkinstocks....where in the codes does it say anyone in the food service industry handling food can wear open toe shoes? Never in my life will I recommend, to bad I will usually go out of my way to support local. Hopefully others will have a better expierance than we had.

EDITED - You can see my original review below. At that time, I gave Elaine's two stars. However, I have doubled that rating to reflect the kind response which I received from Elaine herself, apologizing for my experience and offering to credit my meal to make up for it. --- If I were evaluating the donuts alone, Elaine's would earn four or five stars. Unfortunately, there was far more to this experience, and it wasn't good. I went to Elaine's yesterday with my two young children. When we arrived, I looked for a sign instructing me whether to seat myself or to wait to be seated, but I saw none. Erring on the side of caution, I awaited guidance from the staff. While there were two employees present, neither of them acknowledged us in any way. After a few minutes, a friendly customer noticed the challenges I faced standing idly in the middle of a room with two toddlers and told me that I could seat myself. At our seats, our waitress was friendly enough, but the wait was abysmal. On the upside, she had the grace to apologize for the delay, and my donut was quite good. Unfortunately, the worst part of the experience was yet to come. For my children, I ordered the crepes. Since they are, as I said, toddlers, I told the waitress that they would be splitting the order. I requested blueberry for my daughter and cherry for my son. After the aforementioned considerable wait, our waitress brought out what appeared to be two orders of crepes. Distracted as I was by my children, I did not immediately realize this. By the time I did, the waitress had left again, and I figured I would work it out when I saw for sure what had happened on the bill. The crepes themselves were quite good (although the filling was a major weakness, coming as it did straight out of a can). Of course, my small children were barely able to eat one crepe each. When we went to pay the bill, I saw that we had in fact been charged for two orders of crepes even though I had clearly ordered only one. I clarified that I had only placed one order. The waitress disappeared behind the barrier, presumably to speak with someone higher up. When she resurfaced, she informed me that it was not possible to choose two different fillings for one order of crepes, and so my doing so had basically triggered the second order. I let her know that I wished I had been told this at the time, as I would've ordered both children the same filling so as to get just one order, as two was clearly too much food. She shrugged and said sorry. Of course, any restaurateur who values customer satisfaction would have removed the second order from our bill. I was pretty disappointed when this did not happen. I am happy to know that donuts of such quality are available north of Bangor, but, unfortunately, this experience has made me unlikely to return to Elaine's to purchase them again.

Very good food.

Norma Wing

We had to wait for quite a while to place our order, but they were quite busy. After placing our order we waited for an hour, only to be told they lost our order and we would have to reorder. We asked for a house paper while we waited. After waiting for quite some time we asked again and were by the waitress that she had forgotten. Finally, we were served. I then asked what kind of donuts they had. The waitress said she didn't know, but would check. We waited again. Finally, I went to the cash register and asked our waitress again, only to be told again that she had forgotten. By that time there was only one other table of customers. We were there almost two hours with no apology from management. Definitely do not stop here if you don't have time to waste.

Josie Knowles

Best breakfast food in the area.

Jeremiah Lary

Good food horrible service the waitresses seem not know how to handle things waited an hour for our food while others got theirs even though they ordered after us not goimg there again went with a group of deaf people

Best place in the area to get breakfast. The food is delicious, the interior is nice, people are friendly. Also, their stove is gas powered, so it stays open during power outages. The whole town goes there when the power goes out. It's nice.

edwin marrero

the best in town for breakfast. the waitchrest are great!

Chris P

I love Elaines . Their eggs Benedict is the best I've ever had. The hollandaise is homemade, rich and creamy. Order is always spot on. Sometimes the wait is a little longer on the weekends when they are really busy but worth it. Been going here for 4 years and actually went today and was very satisfied as usual. The canoli was a great finish to the meal.

Robert Brooks

Slower than death. The healthy and light fruit was old and gross and the eggs were cold. Our home fries where burnt .Won't get breakfast again. Also we heard others complaining about how long it took to get their food after they ordered and that it was cold when they got it

Beautiful family friendly bakery. The outdoor area is nice for a hot day in Milo. The don't serve lunch and when we went in during that time the employee on the floor was a little rude. During the morning and evening is a good time to stop in. It's located near the river and the vets park. We usually stop by when we bike in the area.

Kimberly Campbell
