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.

Thought the food was okay, but expensive. I was at the Burnsville location and the hamburger was very well done and dry.

I have been going to Jensen's for years. It is an inexpensive place that is classy and has great food. I have been to breakfast and lunch meetings there and the staff is very prompt and attentive. The omelets and sandwiches are very good. There is also a room in the back that is available if you have a small... More

Went for breakfast. Even though I called ahead of time we still had to wait 15 minutes to get in, because of this I wont give it a 5. There is a gift shop in the same building that you can browse while you wait. The quality of the food is very good, and the portions are big.

Jensens is a great place for breakfast or anytime, but I love their Swedish pancakes best of all. Delicious potatoes, bacon and eggs, accompanied by excellent coffee, rounded out a great meal. Jensen's is not to be missed when you're in the area.
