I ordered the corned beef hash, which is simply corned beef served over hash browns and a side of scrambled eggs. I love crisp, crunchy hash browns but these were burned. And, the corned beef was very, very tough. My wife's breakfast potatoes were similarly burned.

A nice roadside diner. Pleasantly clean and certainly nothing too fancy, but it was a good old fashioned type service. Easy off and on the highway. Nice diner type menu.

Little Oscar's is by far the best breakfast place in MN that I have ever been to. Anytime I get down to Cannon Falls area I try and go there. I get the corn beef & hash everytime. They use real corn beef and not out of a can. Nice local small town breakfast place. Always had friendly service and... More

We always stop here after we get a Christmas tree at the nearby tree farm. Usually breakfast but this year we stopped for lunch. Had a burger. Pretty good! Their breakfast is pretty good, too.

Nice little local dinner. I stopped there on the way to Rochester Minnesota. The menu is American style home cooking. I thought the food was delicious and the people were really polite.

We stopped here seeing 4.4 rating thought food would be good. Boy was that wrong. Hamburger was burnt around the edges, and fries were so crispy they crumbled. No asking how food was just pay and move on. So bad I would not even give them a second chance. Little Oscar's is completely done in my book. Or should I... More

Stopped by Little Oscars for a (hopefully) healthy lunch. Saw an item labeled "broasted chicken".....combination of roasted and broiled....right? Wrong! It was battered and deep fried. I removed the outside layer and found rubbery chicken. Pretty tastless. Waitress was nice but we could have done without all the flies landing on our food.

Each year a friend and I take a road trip from the Twin Cities south on Hwy 52 to Cannon Falls, to ride bicycles along the beautiful Cannon River Trail, which runs between Cannon Falls and Red Wing, MN. The halfway point is the lovely Welch Village, known as a winter ski resort, but also a charming little village in... More
