Elvira's is quite the place for sure. When I worked in Stoney Creek a few years back, I used to go to Elvira's for lunch on Fridays. She used to serve fish and chips and the fish she used was perch. A great inexpensive lunch and close enough to work. Thanks for the memory Randy.

Thanks Ed--definitely a cool place, pretty much untouched by time.

I grew up not far from Elvira's -- I used to bike to Green Variety often to buy candy and buy the paper for my mother. Elvira's always seemed like a real mystery to me. I never saw anyone go in or leave, and it seemed so dark and mysterious.

As I got older, I began to wonder how they stayed in business. But it seems like there must be a good reason for them to be in business. Maybe I'll have to stop in some Friday and check it out.
