We found Uncle Louis Cafe through a quick online search and it seemed to have pretty good reviews so we stopped in for breakfast. Food - I ordered an omelet with hash browns and a pancake. The omelet was disappointing - the eggs were over cooked and the ingredients were a little sparse. The hash browns were actually burnt and... More

Wonderful breakfast place. It is nothing fancy looks like old time diner. Huge portions but very good . Cinnamon syrup for pancakes, tasty chicken fried steak.

Traveled to Duluth to get away for a few days. Found Uncle Louis cafe and stopped in. The best breakfast away from home I have had in a long time and the prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is that of a working man's cafe no glitz and glamour that is not necessary for good food.

I have heard a lot about this cafe so my husband and I tried it one morning. The food was very very average. I would rather make breakfast at home. I think college students go here after a night of drinking and that's why it tastes so good. Little to no atmosphere.

Went here for lunch on our honeymoon after reading some reviews. I am thinking the good reviews were for the breakfast menu items and not lunch. Hot turkey sandwich lacked on the turkey portions (two or three thin slices) and the mashed potatoes, although real, were obviously microwaved to reheat. Club sandwich (which was really a cold turkey sandwich) had... More

We had lunch here while vacationing. It's a fun little cafe, and was full the whole time we were there. Our group of 3 had the chef salad, turkey club sandwich, and patty melt. All the meals were large portions and delicious. The staff and service was outstanding. Highly recommended!

We want here on a Sunday morning - we were able to get a table - but it was the last table available - they seem to do a nice little business. Our server was attentive and food came quickly. The breakfast options were good. We ordered omlettes and they give you ALOT of food. It was all very good.... More

From start to finish, was kind of an odd dining experience. What the decor and service was lacking was made up for when I came to the menu! When you walk in, you have to wait for a table to open and seat yourself. Once something opens, the waitress comes by and gives you a menu. Menu included something for... More

Love their pancakes. Huge. And you can add a variety of fillings. Real maple syrup on the table. Can't beat it!
