Jensen's has great food and a varied menu. So many delicious breakfast items that it's hard for me to decide what to choose whenever we go there! From pancakes to omelets, scrambles, eggs benedict and everything in between, I guarantee you'll find something very delicious and satisfying! And don't forget to try their homemade jam! It's the best!

I recently discovered this restaurant, and LOVE it! The stuffed French toast is to die for, and the device was impeccable. I have now been here twice in two weeks (a lot for me as I don't eat out a ton). I went the second time with my two daughters ( ages 3 and 5) and they loved the pancakes... More

What a great breakfast! My sister and I had the French Toast platter! It came with eggs, potatoes and thick-cut bacon! The syrup is awesome! We had their fresh-squeezed orange juice and a wonderful cup of coffee! We will definitely be back!!

It was nice to have breakfast at a local café vs. franchise. Wonderful server. Clean and updated interior. Great blueberry pancakes. The peach crepes were fresh but a little 'meh'. Good coffee. Difficult to find parking ramp if adjacent lot is full....then hard to find restaurant from parking as you go through a multi use building.

I ordered my favorite breakfast of Eggs Florentine (Benedict). It came on a pancake, which is my fault for not reading that, and with the wrong potatoes. Not a problem, I can wait for the potatoes I wanted. But when I cut into the egg, and the white came gushing out, I returned the raw egg meal. She asked if... More

I have had breakfast numerous times at Jensen's and have never been disappointed. Also friends that have eaten there also loved the food. The selection is wonderful and wait staff are friendly and efficient. The Swedish pancakes are awesome. Highly recommend it.

This place is awesome! The menu has something for everyone, but it is very popular. On the weekends, don't be in a rush. I have waited up to 45 minutes for a table on a busy Saturday or Sunday morning, but believe me, it is worth the wait. Good food at a good price!

We spent the last two Father's Day's entertaining our dad at Jensen's. The food is hot, fresh and plentiful if not very creative (great for an elderly father). The staff was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed our meal.

Anytime we want to go out for breakfast Jensen's is the first choice. And our family loves breakfast! Yes, there is a wait, but it's well worth it, and it's always fun to browse the unique gifts in the store next door (where the intercon is hooked up so you can hear your name called). One oatmeal pancake will fill... More

This restaurant is located in the Heart of the City in Burnsville. The parking situation can be annoying, especially in our wonderful MN winters. You usually have to park in the nearby ramp and walk over to the restaurant. Staff: The staff here are pretty good. Accommodating and friendly. Wait: Be prepared to have a little wait, especially on the... More
