Ellen Bruce wanted to run her own restaurant since she was 13. Her lifelong dream came true in September 2019 when she opened Ellen’s Café on 3rd. Customers come from 30 miles away to try her made-from-scratch food, including chicken salad, barbecue pulled pork and cranberry congealed salad. The restaurant has a private room with a working fireplace that can accommodate 40 guests for business meetings and private events. Parties can order off Ellen’s menu and use the room for free or bring their own food and drinks and pay $100. The restaurant continues to practice social distancing.
