Great place to stop for a usually quick bite to eat. Usually friendly and accommodating, have a pretty good selection of food and daily special. Price is reasonably for small town.

I like stopping here for the sweet potato fries and the Sweden Creme sundaes. They don't skimp on the caramel!

Found this little place while staying in Mankato and so glad I did! I have been several times now and had a great experience and delicious food! My first visit I made sure to order the burger and fries and it was great! The second visit I attempted to be a little bit healthier and went with the grilled chicken... More

I was born in Mankato in 1953, and I've made many trips back over the decades. Sweden Creme has been closed once or twice, but it's back again and thriving due to its new owners. It still has the great food that I've remembered. But watch out for their super-thick malts! You'll get an instant brain-freeze. The portions are bountifully... More

At the end of our fall vacation heading back home we stopped at this little restaurant and had the best hamburger & fries and they even had sweet potato fries. They were friendly and the service was good.

Little place on Highway 36, halfway through Kansas in the small town of Mankato. It doesn't look like much but who cares, We had a fabulous burger and fries there. It is all homemade and tasted wonderful. The staff was also nice and it is resonably priced.

The Sweden Creme Drive-Inn on Highway 36, on the eastern edge of Mankato, is worth a trip by itself! It's a small place, not too impressive, but their soft-serve ice cream is the good old-fashioned kind and--gasp--it actually contains dairy products, unlike the odd soft-serve stuff you get everywhere else. Hamburgers are hand-shaped, not those processed pre-molded frozen things. They... More
