Hungry for a real breakfast-diner breakfast, my wife and I found Uncle Loui's Cafe while on a short anniversary getaway to the Lake Superior North Shore on Friday, August 22nd, 2014. 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

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...?

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.
