Best waffles ever!

Jensen's breakfast is delicious! Their Belgian waffles are tasty and the homemade syrup is to die for...buttery and brown sugary, a delight on a crunchy waffle. I've only eaten breakfast here, so not sure of the other food...but if you like waffles, come here!

Jensen's is a great breakfast stop when in Burnsville. It's a popular spot so be prepared to wait. You can browse the gift store that is in the same building and there are overhead speakers so you can hear your name being called. I recommend the stuffed french toast platter (there's plenty for you to take home and enjoy the... More

Best syrup ever. They make their own syrup and it's the best I've ever had. They serve breakfast all day and it's always fresh and delicious.

We had the stuffed French toast combo with orange juice and the country fried steak and eggs with coffee. Both dishes were delicious! It's this type of food we don't make@ home so it's nice to dine out and have others prepare it. The service was friendly and attentive. The total cost was thirty dollars even. It's average pricing so... More

The wait is extreme all day on a Saturday. The menu is large but has a general theme-too large of portions. This is the kind of restaurant to visit if you are going to eat just one meal that day or like to over indulge as an over-eater. They have this theme - "o-lot" like omelet-o-lot and scramble-o-lot because they... More

We have eaten there many times. The food is excellent and the service is very good too. The only problem is that the adjoining parking lot is quite small. Most parking is in a nearby parking ramp.

We dined in before a concert at the Ames Center. It was a good choice and about a 2 block walk to the Ames. Breakfast is served all day and different variations are offered; i.e. lemon ricotta pancakes, Swedish pancakes, strawberries and cream cakes, etc... Burgers, sandwiches, Mexican food and salads are also offered. We had breakfast foods and a... More

My daughter loves the stuffed French toast at this restaurant. I myself haven't found anything particularly good that I can say I love and would return for. Given the choice I'd stay home and cook something great to eat versus going to Jensens to eat an expensive very average meal.

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
