Delicious pancakes, gyros omelettes, and other breakfast foods. Excellent value. Always a tasty meal here and service is good. Among the best breakfast places in Duluth.

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!

Simply-It doesn't deserve it's rating. Breakfast wasn't anything special; pancakes thick and chewy, omelets were greasy & flavorless, service was not impressive, but at the same time, expected at an in & out greasy spoon. One suggestion-Smile!! 3 police officers had the French toast- so we're thinking we should have tried that...?

Went for breakfast, me, husband, 3 kids and in laws. They had something to please everyone! Server was super sweet and took care of every need. Portions were hearty and plenty to fill everyone, and all for little $$.

Stopped in for breakfast. Service was mediocre, food subpar. Pancakes were tough and instead of the butter being on the pancake it came melted all over my plate. Meal had came with two eggs, again kind of tough and am use to getting more. The best part of the meal was the constant flow of coffee and the two pieces... More

You will not find a better place for super cheap and HUGE portions of breakfast food!! Pancakes are amazing and eggs benedict is to die for. Be prepared for this place to be packed with college students and regulars on the weekends - worth the wait thought.

The thing that struck me about this place is the price of all the entrees... I swear, the pricing is stuck in the late 1990's. You get an obscene amount of food for a ridiculously cheap price, no matter what you choose. I think I received what amounted to three large sizes of fries (if we're comparing them to McDonald's...

In town for a long weekend and stopped in for breakfast. Definitely no frills diner here. Water/coffee girl was a little surly but sever was nice enough. Really enjoyed the food (and the prices) so I would come back and tolerate the only moderately friendly staff for more of those crispy hashbrowns and that homemade cinnamon syrup.

Yes, it's worth the wait when there is a line. Service is stupendous. Always bringing the coffee pot around. Best omelets, hash browns and American fries. Browned and crispy. Pancakes and french toast are amazing. Breakfast WITH coffee averages $10, Yes, that's with the bottomless coffee cup!!!!! BTW, their American fries are fried on the grill...not like Perkins who deep... More
