We always search out local food instead of chains. For our last breakfast in Duluth we went to Uncle Louis. It is definitely a local diner atmosphere. Nothing pretentious about it. Sit down, get coffee poured before you even settle in, and they don't care that the coffee gets spilled as they pour. I ordered the Gyros Scrambler and the... More

While this restaurant is a hole in the wall and hasn't had a makeover since the '60's, the breakfast food is fabulous. You can tell it's made from real ingredients. I'll be back every time I stay in Duluth.

A must have when visiting Duluth! You have to time it right because hung over college kids love this spot come the weekend, and a serious line can form out the door. But that only means that the food is affordable! The staff is energetic and friendly, the bathrooms are clean - yay! Now, for the food... oh yes! The... More

At 8am there was plenty of street parking near the door. We seated ourselves and we're soon approached by a rushed and businesslike yet friendly and efficient waitress who... More

Had to be in Duluth for appointment and after stopped in and had breakfast. My husband had biscuits and gravy and I had their Uncle Louis Scrambler. He said his was plenty of food and very good. I was thrilled with mine also and portions were very good.

Given my name is Lou, this has been on my bucket list of places to stop at and I finally made it there. My wife and mother-in-law and I went there for breakfast. The omelet I had was fluffy and delicious. My wife had corn beef hash. Nice job on the hash, it had skin on for just that little... More

We love Uncle Louis when we want a "classic diner breakfast". I ate the French Toast with Bacon. Was it anything out of this world? no, but was it delicious and hit the spot, absolutely!! We will be back again and again!
