I went here based on the rave reviews it had about their breakfasts. Well, I was really not impressed, I'm sorry to say. It is an old fashioned diner, which I liked, but I ordered an omelet with pancakes, and they tasted kind of off to me--I think they put cinnamon in the batter and in the maple syrup maybe?... More

It might not look like much from the outside, but I promise you will not be disappointed. The service is exceptional and the prices are very reasonable. Wide variety, something to please everyone. We frequent here often. Highly recommend!

We stopped to eat here after an early morning hockey game and we very pleased we stopped! Everything was excellent- customer service, prices and food. Food portions were super sized! Pancakes are gigantic! My kids had blueberry and chocolate chip pancakes and they were excellent. Great place to eat!

Get heir French toast. They turn their tables very fast and the value is excellent. May not look like much on the outside but you must go in and experience the food.

Small place with tons of character. We had breakfast here on a Sunday morning - our timing was great; no wait. Coffee is average, but our omelets, pancakes and hash browns were hot and fresh directly from the grill (that we could see from the booth). Excellent service and great prices. Definitely one we'll return to.

Love when we find another neighborhood gem! The line of people was out the door in 20 degree weather and no one was about to leave or even complaining! There were tons of Bulldog college kids here as the prices are super reasonable and they serve breakfast ALL day! Enjoy!!

Walked in to what seemed like a small place and waited with a mass of people for a table to open up. Well worth the wait. Large portions, good coffee, no complaints.

No wonder Uncle Loui's is the place to go when you're downtown Duluth. I have eaten here several times, and each time, my hashbrowns were done to a buttery, browned perfection, eggs fresh-tasting, coffee hot and fragrant.. what more could you want? Service is friendly and attentive, and the owners obviously care about their clientele and reputation. When in town,... More
