Three waitresses there---one waiting on tables--two holding up the counter. Since it was supposedly home cooking---I'm glad my mom was a LOT better at cooking than that. Nothing stood out as great. Cleanliness could improve.

When we asked people in Two Harbors, “Where's the best place for breakfast?”; the unanimous answer was “Judy's”. This cafe is a local's favorite. If we lived there it would be ours too. We had two eggs with cheese and onions hash browns, two sausage patties and rye toast and a mushroom and cheese omelet with rye toast and coffee.... More

Nothing bad here just nothing great. This is your typical greasy spoon restaurant cafe that is in every small town in MN. Nothing stood out...

We had breakfast at Judy's this morning. The pancakes were really good and I'm fussy when it comes to pancakes. The eggs were done perfectly. The restaurant was full of locals which is, definitely, a testament to the food being good.

We had been to Judy's some time ago - food was good, as was the service. Due to it being a small place and smoking was allowed at the time, we did not go back. On our way home from another trip north, we decided to try it again. It was almost closing time for them, but they told us... More

We ate breakfast at Judy's recently. They were busy, which may explain the slap-dash service. Toast was okay. Corned beef hash was chewy, which is not something one would expect. Eggs were greasy and cold. Husband's omelette was okay. His hashbrowns were tasty, though room temperature. Not our idea of good food.

Needed a quick lunch while bumming in Two Harbors MN so, like we usually do, we tried a local cafe versus the chain. Seating was quick and service was fast. Saw they had custard rhubarb pie on the menu, so our meal centered around that! Pie was pretty good, would have it again in a heartbeat. A little tart like... More

This is your awesome local diner food, at least for breakfast. Eggs were cooked perfectly, hashbrowns were absolutely what you'd expect (yummy greasy hashbrowns!). Decor didn't tickle my fancy, and staff wasn't overly nice (they weren't rude by any stretch either, just not in your face cheeful/chipper), but they were very speedy, kitchen was fast, and food was awesome. Both... More
