My husband and I had brunch there today. He started with a bowl of lentil soup, which he said was good, but not quite as thick as he usually likes it. He then had the broccoli cheddar quiche, and I had the spinach and mushroom quiche. Soooo good! The slices were huge (I took half of mine home) and delicious.... More

Tre Kronor, a tasty remnant from the Scandanavian neighborhoods of Chicago, is a small but wonderful place to enjoy Swedish/Norwegian fare. It is often busy, attesting to its quality, but the service is always friendly and usually prompt. I hope the menu changes some year but remains true to the Scandanavian theme. While I enjoy the menu items, I've exhausted... More

Menu is very interesting, many good choices. Swedish pancakes I felt was a very good and tasty plus the corn beef Hash was up to par. The only thing I did not care for was my coffee cup was not filled at times and I had to ask them.

We visited on a Friday afternoon and it was very crowded. They did our best to seat us as quickly as possible, as we traveled with a few older folks who have trouble standing and waiting. Food was awesome and service was wonderful. I alway order the Swedish pancakes which never disappoint. Others in our group had Reuben, Swedish omelette.... More

I went with a friend who loves all things Swedish so not having a Swedish restaurant in Cleveland we ventured to the Kronor when we visited Chicago. The place has a homey diner fell and did have a mural of trolls on the wall to give it a Swedish feel. There were other accents within the place to represent Sweden... More

We visited with friends last week. It was the first time for all of us. The restaurant is small, across the street from North Park University, in a neighborhood that used to be more strongly Swedish. Across the street is the Sweden Shop. We ordered the brie appetizer and for dinner, meatballs (kotbollar) with lingonberries and pickled cucumbers, meatloaf with... More

We often eat here while visiting our son at North Park University. Since we are 1/2 Swedish in heritage it makes it all the more special. Try the Belgian waffle with berries and whipped cream. Eggs Benedict (several varieties) is delicious too. Highly recommend for atmosphere and that "ethic feeling" of being close to Sweden! Every one is welcome! Valkommen!

My husband and I have been coming here since we lived in the neighborhood 20 years ago. Now if we are spending a day in the city we kick off the morning with breakfast or lunch at Tre Kroner. The outdoor dining is delightful although overrun with bees on our last visit. The only other suggestion would be to add... More

I grew up in the neighborhood and this is my family's favorite breakfast place to take out of town guests. It's alway fresh, tasty and very reasonably priced for the quality. Tre has a cozy, sunny atmosphere and there's lovely outdoor seating in the summertime. If you go for breakfast, the danishes are a MUST.
