This place is always busy so don't go if you are in a hurry. But if you are looking for relaxing great atmosphere and awesome food this is the place. I love the lemon ricotta pancakes with fresh berries. Their French toast with there caramel syrup is tremendous. I live about a mile from here so visit often.

Go to place for great drinks and superb dining. Prime rib is a must order no matter what size you choose. Drinks at the bar are perfect and very generous. Go for it!!!!

The food at Jensen's never disappoints. The syrup that is made is delicious. My kids love the pancakes or French toast. The breakfast Mexican dishes are a small taste of authentic Mexican cuisine. My husband loves them all! Good family atmosphere. The largest downside is just the wait times. Be there early and you will get right in!

Jensen's is a cafe centrally located in the heart of the city, they have excellent food and an excellent variety. My favorite is Eggs Montreal, (breakfast is served all day) Good attentive service, ambience is that of a cafe, clean, modern . Moderately priced. A good vale

I've only ever had breakfast here but they make have so many different choices you won't get tired of breakfast and they do it so well you'll likely order the same things.

Really good food. If you are Scandinavian you will feel at home. But you will wait. For like 45 minutes at weekend brunch time. But it is totally worth it. They will do their best to accommodate large families. Be patient, and deliciousness will abide.

Four of us were meeting for breakfast on July 4 but we didn't know our first and second choice restaurants would be closed - which we all thought was odd. My son and his wife knew about Jensen's Cafe, but I don't think it existed when I moved away. Lots of people waiting for a table, but we were happy... More

We read good reviews about this place so decided to check it out our last day in town before a 6 hour drive home. Ended up wasting over an hour here because we had terrible and slow service. Took awhile to even get a waiter then when I ordered a Pepsi it took 10 minutes for it to arrive and... More

We loved this place and will be back soon. We were in town and heading to MOA. We wanted to grab food and found this place. We had the French toast with their homemade syrup. It was delicious. I wish they had this café in Iowa. Their staff was friendly and helpful as well. Loved it!
