Leif's Cafe delivers great service and food for any hungry traveler in the Eagle River area. We have been stopping in for better than 15 years and have never been disappointed. Portions are are large, food tastes great and the service is always good. I am amazed at how they can handle the number of patrons during the Derby weekend.

Great, friendly service, incredible food, amazing value, and asparagus and turkey with everything (that's an exaggeration). I swear 1/4 of the menu involved asparagus and turkey. Kept going back meal after meal. Such a great surprise.

On our trip we frequently ate at Leif's and it was always good. It looks like it's the place for locals and tourists as well. From omelets to pancakes to corned beef hash the food never disappoints.

Great breakfast place with great coffee to start the day. Large menu to satisfy everyone. Both items we ordered were cooked as asked for and were delicious.

Always go here when in Eagle River. Splendid selections, all delicious. Parking lot always looked jammed, but lots of room to accommodate many. Friendly staff. Fair pricing. Something for everyone.

Stopped for dinner before local HS football game (in the snow I might add). Only regret is I didn't notice the pies until I was leaving. Look for them first!

Three days in Eagle River, and three days eating breakfast at Leif's. This is the home of hearty and filling. No skinny anything here. Just hearty skillets, huge pancakes, corn beef hash, very good hash browns, and a full stomach to get you through your day. Oh, also, a busy but nice staff of waitresses. Thank you Leif's for a...

Today my sister and I started out for a 2-3 hour drive to northern Wi. We were checking out all the beautiful tree leaves which are changing color. About 1:30pm we decided it was time to find some lunch. We picked a restaurant called Leif's Cafe in Eagle River. I wasn't too hungary and this place had quite a variety... More
