Best Breakfast

Best Breakfast in the Twin Cities. I wish they were open for lunch and dinner and served breakfast. Great location and the decor is great!

Everything is done right. Bacon cooked perfectly, pancakes are delicious, orange juice is fresh. Too bad they do not have the the sourdough pancakes anymore.

The service and food were perfect! Get there early! We got there at 8am on a Sunday morning and were seated right away. By the time we left the line was out the door.if

We have eaten here at least once on every trip to Minneapolis. The food is amazing, the service has been great, and the bathrooms are clean. No matter what you get order the bacon...one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth.

This place is great for breakfast but expect to wait, always a line. The pancakes are great and everything else too. To avoid the line/wait I would go to Perkins. Almost as good and shorter wait time.

Stopped in for a late breakfast last weekend. Great coffee while you wait (and you will wait for a table). Prompt and courteous service once seated. Order the house specialty Apple pancake as an app to share with the table (of course you need an appetizer at breakfast) and order your favorites from there. The omelette are 4 eggs deep... More

This is by far the best breakfast I have ever had. The soufflé omelettes are huge and so great. The thick cut bacon is a great add on to the meal. The omelette with the pancakes is a lot of food but save room for at least one it is worth it.

Yes, the wait can be long, but it is worth it. Go on an off day, not Saturday or Sunday mornings and you typically get get right in. Great food, especially the hashbrowns cooked crispy. But everything's good, so pick freely. Great staff! Miss the old style waffle that was light, thin and ultra delicious. This place rocks!
