Best Breakfast

We go every year to the Birkiebeiner ski race in Hayward WI and our Sunday morning stop is at the Robins Nest. If you want an extensive menu with unusual items, you won't be disappointed! This year I tried the Wild Rice and Androuille sausage skillet, and it was delicious. My husband who... read more

We've been there for breakfast & while their food is good, we feel it's a bit overpriced. There are lots of places with good food up here that have large portions & cheaper prices. There is also a bit of a wait for your breakfast, but that's not uncommon in this area. Would I go back? Not likely as I... More

The pancakes, waffles and omelettes are home cooked with a variety of spices and ingredients. The staff are good people who greet the newcomers and the many who return to their favorite place. It is in beautiful northern Wisconsin with a lake across the road.

So, it's winter here, and the day was pretty nice for a drive, so off to the Robin's Nest cafe for us. It's about 45 minutes, but well worth the time, and we hit the casino on the way home, took some money home too. Lyn had the crab cakes, the made a fresh batch for her, so it took... More

Had the monthly special for breakfast--bratwurst and eggs. It was excellent! What's nice is that you can always expect fresh and well cooked food along with good service.

Very good omelets and many other great items to choose from. Strawberry pancake was delicious! Great bloody with the offer of extra hot sauce to jazz it up. We drive over from LCO lake, so it is worth the drive/wait.

I had the Eggs Benedict on top of super tasty crab cakes and with a side of pancakes! Lots of food for your dollar and the taste is out of this world. Can't wait to eat there again in February.

Tasty breakfast choices that are generous and fairly priced. You'll find many of the locals as well as tourists. Busy place, but well worth the wait. Lots of creative dishes.

Nice breakfast place with good prices. Great to get out of town and spend some time at a family place like Robin's Nest...think it is only open on Saturday and Sunday

The food here is excellent! It took a little while to receive our food after we ordered, however, when the food came to us we realized why; Everything was homemade and absolutely delicious! We will definitely eat here again on future trips!
