Great Cafe in the Heart of Burnsville

Went for breakfast and had a 50 minute wait. It was so worth it! Food was great and the service was even better! I tad on the expensive side, but very nice for a couple of times a year. Loved the cafe potatoes, thick cut bacon and the berry iced tea.

The service for us has declined severely in six months. The last three visits we were seated in Terri's section... I order the stuffed french toast combo every time but when she serves, my meal always is incomplete or incorrect. Plain french toast instead of stuffed or she forgets My eggs, potatoes and sausage which she forgot today. Every time... More

The food is always good. I have never had a bad experience. It didn't matter what time of the day or night. The food, service & price are just right!

Maybe slightly better than average, but barely. Everything is served with what they call "café potatoes" -- they describe them as American fries, but they aren't. They are small chunks of red potatoes with rosemary. The potatoes are fried, but apparently they do a lot at one time, as only some of mine were crispy--most of the pieces were soggy... More

Looking for someplace to meet a friend? Someplace with reasonably priced comfort food where you can actually hear each other? Look no further. Jensen's Cafe is related to the fabulous Jensen's Supper Club, but geared more for the casual dining experience, with a menu weighted toward breakfast, soups, salads, and sandwiches. Started as a breakfast, brunch,and lunch cafe, but popular... More

With lingonberries were a surprise. They were like crepes. Not too keen on the homemade maple syrup...tasted like brown sugar. The berry syrup was better. Good thick cut bacon. Others had pancakes and egg combos. One had the caramel roll...huge! Would try this place again. Server was quite friendly and attentive. Parking is in ramp.

I was there this morning and had the best French toast ever. Even though I go their often for breakfast I had never had their French toast. We had the nicest waitress who just added to the good experience. We sat there a long time after we were through and no one said we should leave. With such good breakfasts,... More
