Love this place! Everything is exceptional. My favorite is breakfast . They have a really good skillet with asparagus. The biscuits and gravy are by far the best I've ever had.

I'm on a two-week swing through the upper half of Wisconsin in April 2015, determined to try as many restaurants as I can. I chose Leif's café because it was lunchtime and there were a lot of cars in their parking lot...always a good sign. Service was very slow, but that was to be expected because the place was packed.... More

Great breakfast at a fair price. Service is very good & wait staff is great ! Pork chop breakfast is a meal in itself. A must try.

We have stayed in Eagle River two times. The first time we ate at the Leif Café we decided it was our favorite place that weekend. When we came back a second time we eat breakfast there again and have recommended it to many people we know will have gone up to the Eagle River area. You get a lot... More

We ate breakfast at Leif's twice when we were in town for a hockey tournament. There aren't a lot of options for food in Eagle River and I was just hoping to get something reasonably healthy, not fast food. The menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The service was prompt and our waitress did a good job checking in... More

I only ate there once. The philly steak sandwich was very good. Messy, but very tasty! The dining room was a bit chilly, but it was very cold outside, so maybe that is why.
