Best spot for breakfast

We walked in, seated ourselves and had a waitress very quickly. For $8 I had eggs, sausage, American fries and a pancake bigger than the extra plate. Bottomless cup of coffee too. Everyone had great food. Omelets, potatoes, meats, etc., real food. We learned about this place from my son who lives in Duluth. The locals make it a mainstay.... More

I've brought my family here for breakfast twice. I heard that it is a "hangover breakfast joint for the college crowd". We are able to go only on weekends so there was definitely a college age crowd eating, I can't speak to the "hangover" thing. On weekend mornings both times we ate there was a 20 to 30 minute wait.... More

Good food, big portions and tons of character. Our kids found had many appealing choices and so did we. Although known for breakfast, lunch choices abound. Looking forward to going back for breakfast sometime soon.

The food was great. I had the 2x2x2. French toast was awesome. Bacon and eggs were good as well. I was a little disappointed with the staff. After I was seated a guy walked up and just asked me what I wanted to drink. No greeting. After that another person came over and took my food order. He was a... More

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

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.
