This place is a Duluth classic. If you are looking for some of the tastiest breakfast in town, look no further. Also, prices here are remarkably low, my wife and I ate breakfast here for 14 bucks.

When we got to the restaurant, there was a short line that moved pretty quickly. We waited 15 minutes at the most. However, the line was longer while we waited for food.

We waited in line for this hometown locals breakfast spot, and it was worth every minute! The staff was very attentive and friendly! I loved watching the master fed preparing our breakfast! We sat at the counter so you can see right in the kitchen! In the area, best breakfast by far!!!

We went on a Sunday morning and had a great breakfast. The pancakes were huge, omettles fresh. We arrived about 9am and had to wait, by the time we left the wait was out the door.

As always the food was fast and delicious. French toast is amazing! Mom said country gravy was the best she ever had. The witress never said good morning. It was not very busy,but waitress was too busy for conversation. Food was good enough that I would still return in spite of rude service.

This is a must-try in Duluth! Be prepared to wait if you get there right around breakfast time on a weekend, but the wait is so worth it. Best breakfast in Duluth. Make sure to come hungry and try the French toast!

Thanks to Tripadvisor we found the breakfasts we were looking for. Creative egg dishes and flavorful pancakes. Indifferent staff and no decor, but we came for the food.
