Earlier this month, the Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for Spring Hill restaurant, Eli’s Café. Located in The Shoppes at Spring Hill on US 19, this restaurant is a convenient place to get a good home-cooked meal and family fun. All the food is made from scratch- absolutely nothing frozen. Many of the recipes have been handed down from owner Eli Sherman’s mother and grandmother. The cafe feature Boars Head meat and cheeses as well as a wide array of tempting breakfast and lunch delights.
