The Ely branch was a Little Chef restaurant located near the junction of the A10 and A142, just outside the city of Ely.

Opening in the early 1990s, Ely sported the typical pitched roof and double front design of this era. However, whilst most branches had a red brick construction, Ely was built from a lighter shade of bricks.

Ely was located alongside a filling station and Travelodge, giving it the full quota of facilities for travelers and holiday-makers. Like many other Little Chef sites, Ely received a Burger King in the Granada era. Once again though, Ely was slightly different to other sites. The Burger King was not just a standard add on restaurant but also included a drive-through. Even more unusual was that when the Burger King was removed in the early 2000s, the drive-through barrier remained attached to the side of the Little Chef.

In October 2012, Ely received a refresh. This was a much smaller refurbishment than the Wonderfully British scheme and did not include any of the new branding or furnishings. The Burger King returned as part of the refurbishment and a Little Chef Express was added to the lineup.

In Summer 2017, the Ely branch was closed following the takeover by Euro Garages. It is set to re-open shortly as a Starbucks.
