one of the most iconic diners you will ever visit. this looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, but in all reality it is much more on the inside. Really cool to see the food made directly in front of you... and if you came for a fancy meal you are in the wrong place. This is... More

Our Kitchen is a tiny little restaurant smack in the middle of a residential neighbourhood just a short distance from Lake Calhoun. After breakfast at Our Kitchen a walk down the lake is a good idea. Unless you can scoop one of the 2 or 3 outdoor tables you have to sit at the counter which isn't necessarily a bad... More

We stopped in to Our Kitchen restaurant on our way to the Mall of America. The staff was fantastic and the food was great! It made our travel from Pennsylvania more enjoyable!

Try the Kitchen Special. It is two eggs, hashbrowns, sausage and toast and coffee. For a breakfast dish it is way up on the list of places to eat breakfast. If you are lucky enough, try sitting outside on a nice morning and enjoy yourself.

Yes, the food is great, and yes it's a great value, and yes it's a tiny building, but the most noticeable thing about Our Kitchen was the team working there - from the welcome to taking our order to the friendly banter...many times when strangers enter such an establishment you'll get the cold shoulder...but not at Our Kitchen.

I have been here twice now. The second time because I had to take the hubby since I knew that it was just the divey little place he would love! A great place for breakfast. Love that you can substitute a pancake for your toast. This way you get to satisfy both your savory and sweet cravings all in one... More

This is a great little neighborhood cafe with good food and service. It is a very small place so there might be a wait for space at the counter, but worth the wait. Our favorite part is knowing that you are only steps away from the cook, so the food is always hot when served. Also, watching the cook work... More
