“One of our family's favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Anytime we want to go out for breakfast Jensen's is the first choice. And our family loves breakfast! Yes, there is a wait, but it's well worth it, and it's always fun to browse the unique gifts in the store next door (where the intercon is hooked up so you can hear your name called). One oatmeal pancake will fill me up, and you get three. My wife loves the Swedish pancakes. The service is generally good. And they have the BEST syrup ever.

“Amazing Breakfast, worth the wait!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

This restaurant is located in the Heart of the City in Burnsville. The parking situation can be annoying, especially in our wonderful MN winters. You usually have to park in the nearby ramp and walk over to the restaurant.

Staff: The staff here are pretty good. Accommodating and friendly.

Wait: Be prepared to have a little wait, especially on the weekends. They have self-serve coffee in the waiting area and the food is absolutely worth the wait.

Food: Eggs Benedict, French Toast, Cinnamon Rolls, County-Fried Steak and Waffles are among the best breakfast items here! Trying the homemade syrup and jam is a must! Most items come with an egg (made to order) and Café Potatoes (sautéed potatoes with onions). Orange juice is fresh squeezed.

Price: The prices are fair. Nothing seemed too expensive when taking into consideration the quality and quantity of food received.

I would recommend this restaurant over any other in the Burnsville area! A definite must-try!!

“Popular Burnsville Go-To”

Jensen's has one of the best breakfast's in the Twin Cities. Well prepared, and a lot of food for your money. Be prepared to wait a bit, especially on the weekends, but it is worth the wait.

I had Swedish pancakes with thick bacon. I brought home stuffed french toast for my husband. Even though I was dining alone I was served quickly.
