The food is exceptional comfort food. The waitstaff is like family. You'll like eating here and if you only have 1 meal in Albert Lea this should be it. (it won't be because you'll come back eventually)

Four of us were heading to Minneapolis from Ames, Iowa. We stopped at Trumbles for breakfast. Think of most family restaurants you have been to and you will have a pretty good understanding of Trumbles. I mean this in a good way. Our waitress was very nice and kept my water glass filled. Not an easy task! We all ordered... More

I stopped for breakfast Christmas Eve morning, and there was a steady stream of people coming in to pick up pies and other food for their families. They must be good. I had a breakfast combo with link sausages. The sausages were large and plump, enough spice to make my poached eggs perk up, and lots of coffee. The wait... More

Great tasting, home cooked food. Had the Walleye sandwich and it was perfect. Great coleslaw, and topped it off with the best Banana Cream Pie I've had since my moms. Great service also.

We stopped at this family restaurant on way to Madison for breakfast. Waitress was just ok. I had to refill my own coffee. I never received juice that was included with my oatmeal ( which was runny and not hot). The open kitchen is obnoxious! Yelling to each other and waitress. Poor breakfast and not very friendly. Keep driving and... More

Food choices we made were very good. One of us had an excellent sirloin steak, and the other fried chicken. Great service! Everything was homemade and fresh.
