Stopped at lunchtime. Had the omlet with ham ,wild rice and provolone. I forget the name but it had a thick cake like egg and maybe a tablespoon of wild rice. My husband had a type of hash that was nothing memorable. The diner was dated and I suppose locals would go there. My husband said it was mentioned in... More

Based on what I've had here, mostly for breakfast, I would trust anything on the menu. Whatever you order, they seem to do the best job on. The orange juice is fresh squeezed, one pitcher at a time when they need it. The omelettes, benidicts, french toast, hashbrowns are all done with care and addictively good. The service is friendly...

Fabulous for breakfast, and my bet is, for lunch too. It's across the street from Macalester, so you get a mix of locals and students. It's cheap, but solid.

We ordered breakfast on a weekday afternoon. I had the Carnival French toast with a side of sausage, and my husband had buttermilk pancakes with a side of scrambled eggs. Everything was good, just not very special. Service was great.

This is the place for a great burger or grilled cheese. I stop here for a quick lunch between appointments. Pleasant diner type atmosphere. Friendly staff. Usually attentive but sometimes get really busy.

Always good food. On our last trip (for dinner) we had the Iron Lake Vegetarian, the Blueberry Waffles and the Veggie Burger. All of the food was fantastic but the Vegetarian Burger had to rank up with the best ever. Per their menu the veggie burgers are: "Made from scratch right here at the Broiler topped with cherry tomatoes, red... More

Stopped for brunch before shopping Black Friday weekend. Restaurant was clean, with freshly painted window signs. We were waited on promptly, and the food was served quickly. It was all tasty with good portions. Prices were slightly high, but within reason. After the food was served, we were on our own. It wasn't especially busy. The waitress didn't ask how... More

Burger was ok. A basic frozen patty on a toasted bun. Sweet pickles with it which were not good. Sons cheesecurds were half done but the service was scarce so I was afraid to ask for a reorder. The chocolate mint milkshake was delightful though.....

Stopped here on a Sunday in route to the airport to drop the wife off. Have dined here a few times over the years and they have remodeled since I was here last. They have a great breakfast menu and the food was above average but too bad our service was very slow. We weren't in a hurry but an... More

If you're in the MacGrove area in the morning, near Macalester College, this is a decent place to have breakfast. Not exactly what I would call a destination restaurant, but a good enough neighborhood breakfast joint.
