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

Jensen's has one of the best breakfast's in the Twin Cities. Well prepared, and a lot of food for your money. Be prepared to wait a bit, especially on the weekends, but it is worth the wait.

I had Swedish pancakes with thick bacon. I brought home stuffed french toast for my husband. Even though I was dining alone I was served quickly.

Great service, and very friendly. The Swedish pancake combo, also the Chicken Salad-Salad are the best!

We ate breakfast/lunch here on Sunday around noon. The place was packed, we had to wait 45 minutes to get in. Obviously there are many people who love this place. Once seated our server was very good and attentive. The entire staff was extremely friendly. But our food was less than expected given the cafe's reputation. I had a club... More

Our go to spot for breakfast after church. A lot of people have the same idea, so plan on a 30 minute wait. Not a bad wait, because of the specialty/nook store down the hall. Great value, volume to cost with excellent quality. Pancakes are lite and never overdone. The first time we went, I wasn't sure of the "home... More
