Ordered eggs benedict but didn't realize that to get traditional style you had to specify on an Eng. Muffin or it comes on a pancake. The worst Hollandaise sauce ever. I'll avoid that - if I ever go back. Over priced and quality is slipping.

The Jensen Cafe reminded us of the First Watch chain, and our meals were served hot. Unfortunately, the sandwich for my wife was a bit tough, and my toast similar. My eggs were hot, which was nice. Service was only average, with few offers to refill our drinks. If we visit Burnsville again, we probably would look for other options.

Was recommended by the hotel I was staying at to eat here. Great place for breakfast and coffee. The food was awesome and we could sit outside. The patio area was very nice. Small cafe that is perfect for hanging out and conversing with friends. The service was great and I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!

We recently visited Jensen's Cafe for my mom's birthday. There were seven of us, and the seating was cramped. The food, however, was good, and the service was friendly. The coffee was good and strong!

This is a great local cafe, with long-time, steady staff and consistently excellent customer service. The restaurant feels like a local cafe of previous times where people met to have an unrushed meal and greet others they knew who were also dining there. The menu has many unique items, such as some Tex-Mex omelets and Scandinavian pancakes, as well as... More

I've been to Jensens 4 times in the past couple of years and it seems like the food quality has consistently gone down since my first visit. It is always so busy so I don't think I will go again due to my last two meals being cooked "ok." However, The staff are always friendly and the establishment is tidy... More

The pancakes were amazing. Great tasting buttermilk pancakes but the warm homemade syrup tasted like the carmel on homemade rolls. The burgers were very good as were the cafe potatoes and cheesy hashbrowns. The omelet was only OK. The service was excellent except for the fact that they overcharged us.

Jensen's is a great place for breakfast. the steel cut oats are very good, and they have traditional breakfasts that are better than most. The ambiance is casual and clean. Prices are reasonable.

I visited Jensen's for breakfast, and well, I can only say that the food is simply delicious. I tried the Bacon Benedict, with a couple of pancakes on the side, they are subtly fantastic, fresh OJ, fresh coffee and the Butter Maple Syrup is amazing. Great service and relaxing atmosphere.
