We went for breakfast 4 times over Spring Break. I tried 4 different breakfasts and they were all great. Price was reasonable, service was good, atmosphere is not fancy but comfortable.

I love the Denver Omelette. Excellent omelette. The French Onion Soup is out of ordinary. The Best French Onion Soup I have ever eaten. I love the Chicken Philly Roll Up Sandwich. Price is very reasonable.

Great for breakfast. You have to try the Swedish pancakes. Also, great walleye or cod fish fry at a very good price!

Four of us stopped in for breakfast and found a friendly typical midwest diner. The dinning room was filled with retired men curing the world's problems, couples and families.

Good food and a lot of it. In addition, they are perfectly willing to make substitutions. The place is bigger than it looks so if there are a lot of cars go anyway. They don't take credit cards so bring cash.

Food and service always great. Uncle John's servers are always friendly and helpful. Ask for one egg and get two. Food portions are big, but not to big to finish.
