I have been bragging about the raspberry French toast for days! Not a cheep place as traditional sides of eggs, bacon and potatoes all cost extra. Waitress not too friendly but the food is why I eat our

Edina's arcane and peculiar liquor laws have discouraged fine dining and hotels with restaurants from that city for years, so in some cases it is not surprising that this restaurant has been a long time favorite of the town since 1953. But it is hardly number one; look at the choices of contemporary and imaginative restaurants that follow. I have... More

By far, the best breakfast place. Portions are huge so one breakfast omelet could easily feed one couple, unless you're like a construction guy that burns thousands of calories a day. I won't have to eat for 12 hours now. Their omelets are so fluffy and delicious and they come with 3 pancakes. I substituted them for potato pancakes, my... More

This is a good place to go for breakfast. Not the best option. Be prepared to wait for a table (most of the time) and be prepared to wait a while for your meal too. The items I've had are tasty, but.... I hate waiting for breakfast food. Also, they are very pricy.... Which again, I'm not a fan of.... More

I took the advice of others and called ahead for seating. We were sat within 2 mins of us coming in the door. Great atmosphere. Cute dark wood with dark green floral wallpaper. Reminded me of my mom's kitchen from the early 90s. Prompt service by fast working staff. I had the fajita omelette and coconut pancakes with tropical syrup.... More

If you want breakfast or lunch in Minneapolis, this is your place. An established tradition for decades. Recommend using the "No Wait" ahead of time because it is pretty much always a 20 minute wait not matter when you show up. For sure you must experience the hash browns. They also recently added a rib special that redefines breakfast. Start... More

Awesome variety on the menu - CHECK Awesome service - CHECK Awesome ambience - CHECK Tony disappointing thing about visiting is not being able to eat 2 or 3 different plates. I always feel as though I missed out on another dish that I wanted...the next time I visit...it happens ALL OVER AGAIN!!!
