Ella's Restaurant
Ella's Restaurant
Laurel Heights

Ella's style of food is Neo-classical American cooking, which simply means a revival or adaptation of classic American cooking. Just about every item is prepared in-house. As a "scratch" restaurant, the talented & dedicated staff takes great pride in all of its baked goods ... especially cakes, pies and breads. An early morning stroll past the corner of Presidio and California reveals to the nose all the "freshness guaranteed" for service that day.

What to Order

The Chicken Hash. It is #80 on 7x7 Magazine's 2011 list of 100 Things To Try Before You Die.


Ella's was established in July 1990 by Danny Wilser and Robert Merryman…both veteran restaurant enthusiasts, who sought to create a price-friendly restaurant where their guests would feel comfortable enough to "dine-out" as frequently as they might "eat-in" at their own homes.

That tradition is being carried on by cousins Andy and Matt Skov, who took over ownership of Ella's in January 2006. Matt Skov is looking forward to even higher standards over the next 15 years and beyond. He is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy; a veteran of San Francisco's award-winning Campton Place, including 3 years in charge of its renowned brunch service; and the general manager/chef of one of Colorado's most popular resort-town restaurants.

Back home in his native San Francisco, Matt and the Ella's staff are happily serving customers 7 days a week: breakfast and lunch during the week, and brunch on weekends.
