This restaurant has a reputation as a solid, down-to-earth place with good old fashioned favorites like the American breakfast and breakfast burritos. Heck, they even added a couple new wait staff to the seasoned crew. They have fun artwork and an outside porch in the...More

Had a group of 5 people meet for breakfast. I hadn't been there in years but would go back. Generous portions of food. Everything was great. Pretty busy location and parking is limited but we got a parking spot and seating right away.

Not a fancy place but has a homey feel to it. Kind of a hip, happening place with all kinds of local art on every wall. The place was packed, which is always a good sign of a good restaurant. Great food and good-sized portions....More

Came here on a Sunday after church and had great service, fast delivery of food and great portions. Two french toast completely filled the plate, and was fantastic. Good little gem to find!

Such a bland place, and the thought that people will associate this place with Minneapolis' food culture is embarrassing. The space: Depressing, with dim fluorescent lighting. The few windows don't provide much light to the main dining area. The artwork is random and uninspiring, the...More

We enjoy eating here since the servings are generous and the servers are friendly. Nice historic and art-worthy photos on the walls to enjoy gazing at while you wait for your meal. This place is usually frequented by local working people near the artsy Uptown...More
