I love going to Jensen's to have breakfast with friends and relatives. The food is delicious and feels homemade. I especially like their pancakes and bacon. The staff is friendly even when you stay for many, many cups of coffee. When friends come to visit, we often stop in!

Our first time dining here for breakfast. We can see it's a nice local suburban favorite especially if you like ginormous sized pancakes. Service was friendly and fine. We ate the apple chicken sausage egg skillet breakfast which was underwhelming. Not much egg and chicken sausage amongst the sea of potato and a forgettable gravy type sauce on top which... More

We stopped off here for lunch while in the area and I'm a fan of breakfast anytime of the day. While my family opted for lunch entrees (and enjoyed them), I really liked the blueberry muffins, eggs and sausage. Also got the cheesy hashbrowns - great taste with crunch on the outside and cheesy goodness on the inside. I'll stop... More

Love, Love, Love this place! Almost everything is made from scratch. The 3 berry Jam is great as is the maple syrup dressing they make. Food quality is top notch and the prices are very reasonable. I had the omelette and pancakes. My husband had the biscuits and gravy. The breakfast potatoes were just ok. I definitely recommend upgrading to... More

Jensen's Cafe always has great food, a good selection, and friendly service every time. We are gluten & dairy free and always have a number of options to choose from.

We went here several times while working in the area. Very good breakfasts and dinners. The service is always quick and pleasant and the food delicious. Be prepared for a wait on the weekend mornings but they serve their own fresh brewed coffee while your waiting. They serve breakfast all day but their dinner menu is just like home cooking.

OMG, soooo awesome! The decisions for breakfast was difficult, to say the least... I tried the Huevos Rancheros with cheesy hashbrowns, and because I heard their Lemon Ricotta Pancakes were great, I got one on the side. Had enough for the next day's breakfast. You will not leave hungry!

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.
