My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch/breakfast on our way out of town. It was a good choice as the servers were friendly and food good. They have an infinite choice menu that would please anhyone.

The menu had so much to choose from, it was difficult to decide, all 4 of us were impressed with the service and food. We wanted to go back the next night but it was closed on Sundays.

We've been many times, and the difficult thing about Leif's is what to order. Pleasant and efficient staff, very clean.

I try and eat at Leif's at least once a month because they always have a great breakfast and pleasant wait staff. The pancakes are a must for a side order!

We went here for a late breakfast on the recommendation of a salesperson in downtown Eagle River. The cafe was clean and festive, with tons of Christmas decorations. Even though it was a below zero day, it was cozy inside. I had a Western skillet with hash browns, my husband had chipped beef, and our two boys had Belgian waffles.... More

At least twice a year, I visit Eagle River and Leif's is a must. Breakfast, lunch - doesn't matter. Great value, great food, great service. You can always count on Leifs to deliver the best.

The food is usually excellent but when there is a problem, they should compensate in some way to the customer, especially someone who frequents the establishment on a regular basis.

Leif's is a local diner that has been there for decades. It's a busy place and can be difficult to get into for breakfast during the summer season. Leif's serves really good egg skillets, omelettes, pancakes and the like. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Leif's also serves lunch and dinner till 8:00 pm.

We tried this restaurant for lunch based on other reviews and nothing else was open on a week day during the off season. The food was alright but the server was not very friendly or quick.

Thank Brad A
