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.

Stopped in for breakfast. Typical small town diner. Good sized portioned, prepared well with prompt service to get you going in morning. Very clean.

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.
