We've been eating here for years. A favorite stop for breakfast. Great specials and the best pancakes ever! They offer half portions for those who can't eat a large omelet and the bran muffins are excellent. The food is always good, no matter what time of day. The waitresses are friendly and willing to work with you if you'd like... More

Quite often we eat here after church and it's always packed! No frills here, but prices are right and service is fast. Most of the time we have the daily breakfast special but we really like the hot turkey sandwiches! Homemade taste! We get a half portion because there is a mound of turkey and mashed potatoes! Sometimes we need... More

7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids) stopped here on our way to Voyaguer's national park. We all enjoyed our breakfasts. Some had omelets with pancakes. Omelets got good reviews. A few of us had the number one with scrambled eggs, hash browns, and pancakes or a muffin. As other reviews have said, the pancakes were awesome!!! Would go... More

This is the place to go for breakfast. The Big John omelet was amazing, but enough food for two. PANCAKES are Awsome!

Went because of the great reviews. Would not go back. The French dip sandwich was one of the worst I have had and the potatoe chips it came with were more crumbs than chips. And it was no bargain.

I grew up in Cloquet and moved away several years ago. When I visited Cloquet this past April I went to breakfast here with my boyfriend and my family. The place was packed. My boyfriend says it was the best food he had on the entire visit! The pancakes were just as delicious as I remember them being. The portions... More

We've only been able to eat here a few times, but each time we get great, friendly service and some of the best home cooked meals around. Breakfasts are fantastic, and you can't go wrong with any of the specials, or regular menu items. Lunch and dinner are also great, and if you leave this place hungry, something must be... More

If you are looking for a good home cooked meal when you are on the road then this the the place for you. Breakfasts here are great with low prices and the huge dinner plate size pancakes are delicious. On Sundays they serve a good old fashioned turkey dinner that will remind you of the one your Grandma used to... More

Firstly I must say those pictures and the website do NOT belong to the Family Tradition in Cloquet. Which I have been going to for over fifteen years, and is more of a remodeled drive up restaurant. Secondly, but more importantly, the food is great, Home cooking style, greasy and nummy! I have liked every single lunch, breakfast, and dinner... More
