We ordered the taco salad and pork chop. They were OK, but not great. The taco salad was small, especially considering the price, but was pleasantly spicier than what you normally get in a Minnesota restaurant. The pork chop had some marinated apples on top,...More

I’ve been here many times with family for breakfast. Just an old fashioned great American restaurant. Offers your normal breakfast spread. But the best part about Canadian Honker is their famous BUNNY CAKE. Theirs is the best I’ve had!More

Each time we visit Mayo Clinic, we make a point to eat at Canadian Honker. We have not had a bad meal! I’m not gonna lie, my main reason for stopping is that cake. It’s simply delicious!

Their walleye is amazing but I had the soup. Real need stew with chunky, not to mushy veggies. The coconut cake is everything you give for and service was friendly and good. Just a great place right across the street from the hospital.
