“Like the sign says, "Not Good Lookin Just Good Cookin"”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

Just had breakfast here this morning. Felt like I was back in time. Small cafe with good friendly folks. Had scrambled eggs and polish sausage with Jewish bread toast. Yummy. Eggs were good not dry like most places. Daughter had the scrambled eggs with diced ham and husband had pancakes. All good and the staff was great! Will come back again.

“MMM hot roast beef sandwich!”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

Take a step back in time... this tiny little diner has fantastic home cooked food. Anything for breakfast is awesome! For lunch I always get the hot roast beef. So good!

“Amazing breakfast!!”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

I love this place! The staff, food and atmosphere are fantastic. If you go for breakfast you get a free mini muffin before your meal comes out. Eggs, bacon and cinnamon rolls are my favorite. Be sure to get a slice of homemade pie to go. The ambiance is a reminder of how St Paul used to be.

“Amazing Breakfast”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

Just excellent home cooking is what you'll get at Serlin's. I've been there about a dozen times and have never been disappointed. They're only open mornings and afternoons Monday - Saturday. Not sure why they're ranked so low, I would rate then top 10 in St. Paul for sure.

“Great atmosphere, service, and food!”
Reviewed 26 May 2012 via mobile

While in St. Paul for business last week I had the chance to eat breakfast at Serlin's. What a treat it was! Parking was great and the friendly greetings were genuine. The food was excellent and with service to match. I went back the next day as well and will continue to frequent Berlin's every chance I get.
