Huge portions at a very low price. Parking on the street is available. I had to talk to a police officer about the handicap notice sticker on all the street parking meters near Uncle Louis. She said that we could park at any meter.

This was our first time here and the food, service and location was amazing. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Our food come out quick, hot and delicious and the location is perfect! Will come back here for sure the next time we are in Duluth.

Get here early for breakfast or get ready for a wait. The line goes out the door every weekend, and with good reason. This is *the* best breakfast in the Twin Ports. No nonsense old school diner atmosphere. You're not getting anything fancy or "gourmet," just a delicious, filling, affordable meal. I've never had a bad time here.

Great food and service. Make sure you're hungry when you go here for any meal! Great variety of menu items, quick turn-around of order to table and the prices are reasonable. My favorite is the pita omelette de-lite with salsa. Expect a wait on the weekends because this is a popular place for locals, college students and tourists. Pick up... More

Always the place for breakfast when visiting Duluth. The breakfast selection is awesome and filling. Have the French toast and make sure to try the house made cinnamon Syrup!

Our "go to" breakfast when eating out in Duluth. Low key, hole on the wall place. Pancakes, French toast are awesome. Omelette is great. Something unique is the gyro omelette. Hashbrowns are fabulous. Good diner food indeed! Coffee is basic..the only letdown.

AMAZING! Good prices for large portions of food!! Actually closest thing to heaven! I always used to get pancakes and they're massive! Thank you for feeding me the best breakfast for all my 4 years of college (and while being hungover)

The best place to eat breakfast not only in Duluth but in MN. The skillets are the best and the pancakes are legendary. Great value for a ton of food. Always go here for breakfast when I am in Duluth.

Awesome spot for a casual breakfast! We had to wait for a table, but it was worth it - can't beat the prices and the portions were out of control.

Thank Laura G
