The food is good, the service tends to be slow. Don't go if you are in a hurry. The Eggs Benedict are good but I have had to send it back due to the eggs being too runny, as in the whites are runny. Then it is like I started over with my order. The Swedish Pancakes are awesome.

I love this restaurant for breakfast! The cinnamon rolls are huge. The pancakes are delicious! My favorite is always the oatmeal with toast but yesterday I tried the yogurt with fruit and that was also delicious but not filling enough for me :) Park in the nearby ramp as the tiny lot is always full!

We've eaten at Jensen's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the food is very good. There are establishments where you can eat and get the standard boring meals but that is not the case with Jensen's. The chef is creative in making the standard fare more interesting and favorable.

We always enjoy this restaurant. It's so nice to find a restaurant in the 'burbs that isn't a chain. The service is always friendly and attentive. The blueberry pancakes are out of this world as is the monte cristo sandwich. They are always happy to meet any special requests you have. It is a nice, warm, relaxed, relatively quiet place...

Having read all the reviews and seeing the 4.5 rating, we were excited to try this place. We came in for brunch around 11 and it was busy, but that was to be expected. We were quoted a 20 minute wait and it was essentially right on the dot. Hostess and waitress were very friendly. It was very busy when... More

We had a great breakfast during the lunch hour. Breakfast is served all day. The roasted potatoes that came with all our egg dishes are delicious. We had the western omelette, spinach feta omelette and scrambled with cheese and ricotta pancakes. Everything was very fresh. Coffee was delicious.

This place tends to be really busy; but people know where the good food is, so that's a given. Be prepared for a little wait but it is definitely worth it. The prices are decent so you will see families with little kiddos, which means this place - and their menu- is family friendly. Every time I've gone there I... More

Great service and fresh, well-prepared food. Outdoor patio in warm weather, where well-behaved dogs are welcomed. Plan on waiting for a table on weekends. Known for breakfasts, this place serves amazing meals all day long. We go out of the way to dine here!

The service is very nice and helpful. Really got the feel of a regular instructional food prep restaurant. The food was ok. Nothing special I will run back to have. Maybe a good place for an. Older clientele was enjoying their visting and food during my visit.
