Sunday Service, not church

Brunch with the girls and the menu has plenty of great options/choices, however the service was not a shining star item. The waitress we had was a younger gal that did not seem to have a vested interest in her clients/patrons. She was not attentive and had about the same enthusiasm I get when I... read more

Located just a few steps from the main Hospital of the Mayo Clinic the Canadian Honker is always a place for a good meal. It is a good coffee-shop environment and while the good is good, it is not exceptional. However, you will always get a good well-rounded plate of food. The environment can be a bit noisy and at...

Very good soup. The food in general was good. This was a bit pricey compared to places I typically go to, but the experience was very good.

I have eaten at the Canadian Honker twice, once for dinner and once for breakfast. Dinner was pretty standard fare, but when I was invited back for breakfast with a large group of people I was really impressed with my meal. The eggs benedict are definitely worth ordering! The service was great despite the group size, and everyone seemed equally... More

Great walley dinner. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just down the street from Mayo clinic about 6 blocks west. They did seem a little short staffed.

I visited the Canadian Honker Restaurant twice during my most recent visit to the Mayo Clinic. The food was excellent both times. The first time I had a special which included the best steak I have ever tasted. I have been to some of the top steak houses in the US and this steak was slightly better than the steaks... More

This place has great food and is very accommodating to special needs diets. Their menu offers dinners, sandwiches, great desserts and much more. Carryout available with dinnerware included for those staying in a hotel. We had more than our share for dinner - plenty of food!
