Great food, just like grandma used to make. Only grandma lived in dairy country where cheese and butter are sold by the truckload. Bring your folks here and get some old fashion food at a reasonable price (tip & cardiologist bill not included.)

Carol's is a family run traditional diner that serves traditional american homestyle dishes. Excellent food quality with fair prices and good portion sizes as well! The food takes me back to my youth when my grandmother would make family breakfast on Sunday. You cannot go wrong with a meal at Carol's!

We stopped at Carol's restaurant in Blaine, MN, for lunch with my husband's siblings and spouses. It was around 2PM so it wasn't incredibly busy, but still had a number of people there for that time of day. We ordered hot sandwiches (turkey and meatloaf), and some had beef stroganoff, and another had walleye. The food came, was excellent,fresh tasting and VERY home made! We all shared some absoslutely wonderful chocolate cake for dessert that was large enough for ALL 7 of us to get a huge "sample" piece, since we were all very full from our meals! After lunch, we all stopped in at the "gift shop" and yes, while mostly for the "ladies", it had some very unique jewelry, scarves, bags, bath products and accessories. Lots of fun to browse, but take your time, or walk back through the store from the opposite direction as you are sure to have missed something!! The only drawback to the whole experience was our waitress, who "forgot" to put our order in for at least 20 minutes, and then held up one of our party's meals for at least ANOTHER 15 minutes, while they "made some extra gravy". We weren't going to hold the restaurant responsible for what she did (or didn't do as they case was), nor should she have held up the one meal for "extra" gravy. PS You HAVE TO try the hot turkey sandwich, with mashed potatoes and stuffing!!

What an amazing hidden treasure. Hands down, BEST breakfast spot in the Twin Cities area. The homemade Jam and fresh toppings on the pancakes is an explosion of greatness in your mouth.
With the fireplace roaring and welcomed with a smile, Carol's atmosphere is absolutely delightful. Service is always a ten!!
To top off a perfect meal, it is a must to stop in the Vintage Rose Boutique and do a little shopping. It has such unique clothing & jewelry.
Since we have found Carol's, we wouldn't think to go anywhere else for breakfast.
