My husband and I went there on the suggestion of a coworker, who recommended the garbage omelet. We went at lunch time but wanted breakfast, so we were glad to see they serve breakfast all day. The menu is extensive, and everything on it sounds delicious. I ended up ordering the garbage omelet, which is basically an omelet with the... More

I ordered a breakfast platter to which I was going to leave out my potatoes due to my special diet. My waitress suggested ordering in a different way and saved me money. My husband loved his scramble, and my eggs were cooked to order.

Just stopped in during deer hunting season the week of Thanksgiving and had an awesome breakfast. No one will would ever notice the ownership has changed and the staff remains outstanding with their service. The new owner takes pride in his ownership, food quality, service and his staff and you can see it throughout. I had the country fried steak... More

If you make a trip to or through Eagle River, WI one must stop at Leif's Café. On a Friday there is no better way to enjoy the day than with a cup/bowl of their Seafood Chowder. And if you like crab salad, there's is a must when it is in season. There is breakfast all day and one can... More

My family found Leif's several years ago, when we asked a "local" for recommendations on where to go for a great breakfast. And we have been going back ever since. The food is great, the service is very friendly. There may be a line out the door, but it moves fast and it is worth any wait that you may... More

I have been going to Eagle River for years and years and a breakfast at Leif's is always on the agenda! Food is unbelievable and the staff are all so friendly. Chances are you will have a wait for a table because they are always busy but it is definitely worth the wait. We got smart this time and one... More

My husband and I were in Eagle River for a wedding in September and Leif's Cafe was right next door to our hotel. We had breakfast there on Saturday. Right when we walked in we were greeted with a Good Morning and brought to our table. The food was excellent, we both had omelets. They were very busy, but all... More
