WOW

Jensen's is great. We came for late lunch and had breakfast instead. High quality food and prep. Great service. Kelly out server is outstanding. We will come back!

They have an amazing breakfast menu (the lunch and dinner options are quite good too), but you won't go wrong with their Strawberries and Cream French Toast. Heavenly!

I had the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes for lunch today and they were yummo. The lemon was not overpowering, the ricotta was detectable only in the pleasant creaminess it provided and the homemade butter syrup was money. Here's what's wrong with Jensen's though, in my opinion... Classics are classics for a reason. They have stood both the test of time and... More

Very good breakfast spot. Good service.... quality food well prepared. Recent price increases a little hefty.... Any higher prices, we will look elsewhere for our monthly get together with fellow retirees.

We stopped for an early morning Saturday breakfast and wanted to move to Burnsville just so we could have breakfast there every morning! We ordered the Swedish pancakes. Never to be missed...honestly! They were paper thin, HUGE and really did taste like a little piece of heaven. They were served with eggs (your style) and delicious bacon. What's not to... More

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
