A must for breakfast! This place isn't very big. We came at 8:45 on a Saturday morning and had to wait about 5 minutes for a table to open up. The breakfast menu is big with lots of variety. Prices are good and portions are big. Service was excellent with all staff taking care of all customers. We tried the... More

Breakfast is their specialty. It would be difficult to find without a GPS. I enjoyed the stuffed french toast.

Huge kiddie cake! Enjoyed the eggs bene and country fried steak, portions were huge!!! Think they might not have anticipated the huge rush the morning after the 4th, they did seem a little short staffed.

Great place to go for cheap, fast, and delicious breakfast! Portion sizes are enormous, coffee is free flowing. French toast is incredible and omelettes always hit the spot. Usually busy, usually lots of hungover people, try to go early!

This is an urban breakfast destination. This is a cafe, with counter, booths and a few tables. A bit loud because it is full of patrons and the kitchen is in close proximity. Blueberry pancake (just one is all you need) is our preferred choice. If you want to get a table when you arrive, be here BEFORE 9:00 a.m.... More

I was searching for local restaurants to eat at while my visit to Duluth. The server was prompt and friendly, food came out piping hot & delicious, and prices were average. It's a place where many locals visit (which to me is a good sign). I had the deluxe hash browns. Too bad we visited on our way out of... More

On the way up to Grand Marais we decided to stop in at the Uncle Louis Cafe for some breakfast. The cafe is old school with many smaller booths, some stool seating, and a few larger tables in the back. The service was great and food even better. I had the eggs Benedict and hash browns with a side of... More
