Great Breakfast

This is a fabulous breakfast spot. There will be a wait on weekends unless you arrive before 9. The wait is worth it and coffee, seating, and kids toys are available while you wait.

Their Strawberry Chicken Salad is outstanding (I find myself craving it OFTEN) and their soups are always delicious. We dined at Jensen's with a friend who declared their waffles to be the best he's ever had. There is often a wait for a table - especially on weekends. Fortunately, Ficus and Fig is next door ... so, you can browse... More

While food and service were good, the entry process left much to be desired. Toilets with no visual screen at entry were poorly located and left over space in hallway became the waiting area. The building seemed to be designed for offices, by leased to restaurant/gift shop instead.

We went here for Mother's Day, arrived at 1:30pm and still had a 20-30 minute wait but it was worth it. Great selection of food, my son had a big breakfast, daughter had fajitas and my husband and I unknowingly ordered the same walleye sandwich. Everything was fabulous! We will most definitely be back. Service was impeccable, our server was... More

An excellent spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Outstanding food with lots of choices. There is a down side to this place, however, and that's the parking. Although there is a parking ramp close by, it involves lots of walking and stairs. There are very few parking spots right by the restaurant. There is usually a wait for a table,... More

Their Swedish Pancakes with Maple Butter Syrup are the greatest. Saturday is busy, yet Sundays get very busy. Midweek there is little if any waiting to go try these pancakes...then you will know why people come back on Sundays and wait to get in!
