“Nice breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This small Swedish café has a nice breakfast menu, ranging from Swedish pancakes (somewhat similar to crepes) and other pancakes to Omelets. (It also appears that they have nice lunch and ice cream offerings, but since we were there for breakfast I can't comment on those.) I had the Oatmeal pancakes which were generous in size and filling. Others in my group had an omelet, sour cream waffle, Swedish pancakes and biscuits. Everyone said their food was very tasty and they had plenty to eat. Most breakfast meals were between $6 and $10.

Our large party of 10, came in to the restaurant on a Sunday morning and found it comfortably busy. We were quickly seated and orders taken. The beverages came quickly. It took a little while for the food to come, but considering we were a party of 10 adults in a fairly small restaurant, the wait didn't seem excessive. The atmosphere was pleasant and it was easy to fill the wait time with conversation (plus they re-filled coffee regularly).

We got off (north-bound) Highway 99 on the 18th street exit and were parked in front of the restaurant in about 5 minutes. The on and off of Highway 99 was fairly easy.

We plan to return to this friendly restaurant when we are in the area.

“Small Town Cafe with a Touch of Sweden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The Dala Horse Restaurant is well known locally for their Swedish pancakes and specialty Swedish lunch plates. They are located in the heart of downtown Kingsburg, CA - which is not very big so it is easy to find. They claim to have distinctive traditional Scandanavian fare and based on my visit I would say they do. This is a small town cafe with a touch of Sweden. I had the Swedish pancakes for breakfast and they were very good. Don't expect too much for atmosphere -- it is a cafe. Defintely a place many of the locals visit in the morning based on the greetings/exchanges that occurred between those coming and going. Take a few minutes and enjoy what a small town, old time cafe can offer. It is as much the experience as it is the food.
