Our family loves going here for breakfast and as a matter of fact, this is the only place we go for breakfast. We've learned on the weekends that we have to go early otherwise it gets very busy. The potato pancakes are the best around! I'm picky about potato pancakes and these are amazing. Great price too considering it comes... More

Had a business meeting with an old friend. Service was a bit slow but there was NO push to have us leave as we were there almost 3 hours. Great for families and the atmosphere is very low key.

The wait time for a table can be long as it is a very popular choice. The breakfast is very good and the portions are huge. Their claim to fame are their potato pancakes which are tremendous.

As visitors from out of town, the family always likes do a little impressing. This is how we found ourselves at Mohnen's Darboy Family restaurant the morning of our departure. As a special treat my cousin took us to this restaurant for breakfast and it did not disappoint. Not being a breakfast eater, I wasn't really sure what to order.... More

Mohnen's is a local favorite that we try to keep a secret. My kids love the potato pancakes and apple fritter French toast and I've never been disappointed with any of the omelette's. Service is great and everything is freshly prepared. Try mohnen's for breakfast, you won't be disappointed!

If you are a local, when you go to Mohnen's there is a high possibility that you are going to run into an old teacher, neighbor, cousin, etc. when you stop in. This place has consistently delivered wonderful food since they day they opened. All of my siblings have a favorite dish, my brother loves the liver and onions, that... More

Hometown cooking at it's finest. Prices are reasonable. Food is well worth the wait when there is a waiting list.

Make sure your not in a hurry when frequenting this breakfast hot spot! Every time I've gone it's been a Sunday and I always wait 20-30 minutes to seat. Because I have never been dissatisfied or disappointed with their food, I'm perfectly content to wait! I've never ordered dinner but the many lunch and breakfast options are always fantastic!

We were in Appleton to visit my grandfather over the Christmas holiday season. He was in the mood for potato pancakes and recommended Mohnen's. We had a party of 5. Four of the five ordered the potato pancake entree. I ordered the breakfast casserole which came with a side of potato pancakes. Despite the relatively large size of our party... More

Mohnen's is a very impressive family restaurant. Low prices and a huge selection of favorites along with specialties. I love just going for roast beef and mashed potatoes, but they also serve their delicious breakfasts all day. The cinnamon roll pancakes are incredible. Often my husband and I split a chicken fried steak meal with some special pancakes for "dessert".... More
