    The best dining experience I’ve had in The Watkins Glen area. I got the chicken and waffles, my wife got the spicy breakfast sandwich, both were amazing. The mimosas and Irish coffee were splendid. Beatles plying on vinyl, the most friendly, energetic guy running the counter. Love this place!!! Whenever we’re back in town from Delaware, this will be our go-to for breakfast/lunch.

    What a great little find! Totally forgot to take pictures of our sandwiches before we demolished them, but you can see we were (mostly) members of the clean plate club! The Brie bird was just an OUTSTANDING sandwich- it was really a great surprise. The staff were incredible, the vibe relaxed and sunny, and the view is beautiful. Thank you elf in the oak crew!

    Our best meal of our three day weekend in the Finger Lakes was at The Elf in the Oak. My lobster roll was fantastic, and combined with the picnic tables and views out back, I felt like I was in Maine. Everyone’s else in my family had great meals as well - very fresh, and you could tell it was made more from scratch than other places we experienced there. Loved shopping in the Vintage Shop out back as I waited for my food!

    My fiancé and I had the pleasure of stopping here for lunch on our trip to the finger lakes. The food is out of this world. We went back every morning for breakfast. While the food is outstanding, it is the staff that takes this place over the top. Perhaps the nicest, most friendly people we ever met. They were outstanding. Absolutely what we will miss most from our trip.

    We found this place on the way to the finger lakes. Not a lot of eateries around and we had to take some quick bite. Not a big restaurant, as you can expect but more of a makeshift one and is a self service one as well. The order taking staff was friendly initially but ended up being sarcastic. Veg sandwiches were really good, the chicken sandwich we got was a little weird and whoever ordered ate only half of it. They don't have clean restrooms just some not so well maintained portable ones they had. Sitting is only outdoors (with a roof, more so on the deck of a house) and they do have some heaters. It has got a scenic lake background view.
