I love the breakfast at Canadian Honker! Excellent omelet with hashbrowns and generous portions (see pic). Always a pleasure to have Ashley as my waitress; she is such a sweetheart!

We love the Canadian Honker Restaurant! We always hope we can time our stay at Mayo Clinic to allow breakfast at the Canadian Honker. They serve the absolute best Eggs Benedict we’ve ever experienced. This restaurant is a must when in Rochester, Minnesota!
