Superb breakfast with gluten free options

we had a great breakfast here! They have gluten free pancakes and toast and other baked goods. Good and different choices for other breakfast options. Friendly service. Clean and quiet. We would go back.

Ate here on my last day visiting Bemidji. Was not disappointed - great service and delicious food all at a reasonable price. Highly recommended!

If you don't see it on the menu, ask anyways. I really wanted some eggs Benedict and after I asked, she said oh yeah we have that but it's just not on the menu as are a bunch of other things. It was delicious and always go for the hash brown casserole

My daughter and I stopped in when in town from Chicago. It's a no frills place, but the food is good and the staff friendly. It's a good option to a chain place for breakfast.

A fun, very popular, place to eat. We had lunch at this restaurant and enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent, both a "breakfast" and burger meal. The service was friendly and good even though they were very busy on our visit. It is a popular place with the local folks, always a good sign.

We stopped for lunch after hearing from locals that they had really good food. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated.

Looking for a great place to take my husband for his birthday since we were vacationing and it's his favorite meal out. Service was excellent, staff friendly. Food was very good and fixed promptly. The place is clean and comfortable!

A quintessential small town diner/restaurant, the Minnesota Nice Cafe is aptly named. Often hopping, it’s popular with both locals & visitors for a reason. I prefer the slower hours when we can sit & chat at our table over a pot of coffee after enjoying a wonderful breakfast. Their menu covers all the standard fare for hearty breakfasts and sandwich...

This place truly is a hidden gem in Bemidji. Since I was here last, they have moved to a new location off Irvine Ave. There is much more room and it definitely has a north country feel to it. They offer some very unique dishes such as their summer special which is bowtie pasta with chicken, celery, cranberries, almond slivers... More
