Recently I was in New Ulm on business looking for a good breakfast place. I found Ullmers through TA and recommendations of friends. Ullmers is a nice family-type restaurant located downtown and frequented by locals and farmers. The talk about farming, crops and the weather was interesting to listen to and the breakfast was very good. The bacon was about... More

Good food & friendly staff helped us on our way to start a great day for Oktober Fest. Their G3 hash browns as others have said are a must try.

Outstanding service. Really good food. Don't forget they only take cash. Everyone there friendly and gives you ideas on places to visit in town.

We love breakfast here! We visit two or three times a week. The eggs, breakfast meats, and pancakes are superb. You've gotta try the G3 hash browns with an omelet sometime. Don't let the looks fool you--this is a hangout for local bankers and business types as well.

My husband and I had a lovely breakfast at the Ulmer Café while in New Ulm. This is a great choice for a “classic” small-town breakfast, and they are known to have the best bacon in town (my husband loved it!). Easy location to get to, friendly service, and good food!

BEST breakfast I have ever had!! Something as simple as ham, eggs and pancakes but each with a flavor to die for! The pancakes are pastery-like. First time visiting New Ulm ( I live 3hrs away) and now all I want to do is go back!

This is an average cafe on the cute main street in New Ulm. Food was OK, the best part was the generous helpings of crinkle fries. :) It always throws me for a loop when places don't take credit/debit cards, and they didn't have a big sign up like most do. It was fast and affordable, just nothing special.
