Wonderful Breakfast!

Minnesota Nice Cafe has a wonderful breakfast menu. I had the parfait and it was huge! They have a big range of choices on the menu so there is plenty of choices for everyone. Our waitress was so nice and attentive to our needs. Great place!

This place was new to me so four of us from out of town tried it. We all really enjoyed the food, and despite previous reviews, our service was excellent and pleasant. Good coffee too, a requirement for a good review! Lots of side-street parking, no problems there. This is one of three places I will go for breakfast in... More

Our family was in Bemidji for a baseball tournament. We didn't have much time to spare and we're very happy with the attentive, quick service on a busy Sunday morning. This restaurant has a wide variety of breakfast menu items. The food was hot and delicious. I really won't want to go anywhere else in Bemidji for breakfast again!

I had a breakfast meal special. My husband got the walleye. The only issue is that the portions were a little small for the price. What I didn't like about the portions was made up for by the flavor. The pancakes were delicious, and my husband raved about his walleye. Service was excellent-probably the highlight!

A terrific local place, good service, wonderful home-style cooking, and you don't have to spend a paycheck. No matter what you select, the food is tasty, hot, and there's always plenty of it. Locals all know this location. Open daily from 6am to 3 pm, the menu is filled with amazing breakfast and lunch selections. Dinner service on Fridays and... More

Niiiiiice! I did not believe Bemidji had it in it. But I read the tripadvisor reviews and gave it a try. You all are so right! It is a gem. The location is not so good and parking is a sidestreet affair, but doable. This new location (about a year ago) for the cafe has been done up right. Formerly... More

What a great local find. We had lunch here on our recent trip to Bemidji. The restaurant was super busy, which is usually a good sign that the food is good. They had a good selection of breakfast and lunch items. The french toast was great. The food was all fresh and made. The cornbeef hash was very yummy. We... More

We think it's always a good sign when the local sheriff and his staff are eating where we are, and they were at this cute little cafe! Everything we ordered was nicely prepared. I had a skillet that included wild rice, red-skin potatoes, bacon, hollandaise, and eggs that was just right for a rainy morning. Check out the woolen mill... More

I don't normally order pancakes because I'm generally not a fan but this place has the best pancakes I have ever had, that I like. I also highly recommend the spinach, bacon and feta omelet and the hash brown casserole.
