This place was literally three stores down from my hotel. The waitstaff were friendly and fun. I ordered an omelet with asparagus, artichoke, mushrooms and tomato topped with asiago cheese. The two sides I chose were fresh fruit and their famed cinnamon rolls. Everything was...More

We walked a mile past dozens of nearly empty restaurants to eat here. On arrival it was packed with only 1 empty table. No wonder. The menu included the standard all day American breakfast (in many varieties) and a good variety of unusual Swedish inspired...More

Hadn’t been here in years. Great breakfast and the cinnamon buns are to die for. A little bit of a wait to get seated but worth it.

The menu has traditional American breakfast, specialty items, and traditional Swedish items. The cinnamon rolls are apparently a specialty, but we also decided to try some potato pancakes. Yum. Be prepared for a smorgasbord of food each meal comes with 2 sides, and if you...More

We stopped by for brunch. The queue was massive and seemed like way too much hassle especially in the cold with a 6 year old. Instead I got us some cinnabons to go and we headed back to our hotel and had lunch nearby. These...More

On Sundays, Ann Sathers is open from 7 am until 4 pm. Expect a wait! The food is worth the wait! We had a party of two at 11:30 am. Our wait was only 5 minutes! I noticed that a party of six only waited 15 minutes. I... More
