I love greasy, big-portion, barely-any-seats, stand-and-wait-15+minutes style restaurants. Love 'em! Our Kitchen certainly doesn't disappoint. We went on a Saturday an hour before close. Had to wait a minute for a couple Gopher football players to finish up about 3 plates each. Following placing our order there was another wait but by the time the food arrived, it was well... More

This teeny tiny spot only has 19 or 20 seats and we lucked out when we stopped by. Only had a short wait for three seats to open up. We were there about 25 minutes before closing and that was perfect. Had a delicious brunch and will go back. Seemed like everyone knew each-other except us, still friendly though. Be... More

Yup it's small - remember it's our kitchen, and the food is just like you remembered! Sit at the counter or 1 of the 2 tables - no matter what, you are in for a perfect old style breakfast. Grease and butter are main components and make the eggs, bacon, toast, hash browns a feast for the eyes, nose and... More

This is the classic diner experience with classic diner food... Don't expect anything more or less! If that's your baseline, this place is great! Prices are good and helpings are large.

Was working outside of the cafe and decided to give it a shot since I love supporting the community and small business. Ordered the sausage egg and cheese sandwich on white bread with hash browns, delicious. Everything is cooked in front of you and fresh. Not a lot of room but I was a to go anyway. Will definitely visit... More

We stopped by here on our way to the airport on a weekday morning. Counter seating for about 12, a few inside tables and some outside tables. Mostly locals coming in for their breakfast. We both had their Kitchen special of sausage, eggs and hash browns with either toast or pancake. The pancake is huge, filling the plate. The breakfast... More

one of the most iconic diners you will ever visit. this looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, but in all reality it is much more on the inside. Really cool to see the food made directly in front of you... and if you came for a fancy meal you are in the wrong place. This is... More

Our Kitchen is a tiny little restaurant smack in the middle of a residential neighbourhood just a short distance from Lake Calhoun. After breakfast at Our Kitchen a walk down the lake is a good idea. Unless you can scoop one of the 2 or 3 outdoor tables you have to sit at the counter which isn't necessarily a bad... More

We stopped in to Our Kitchen restaurant on our way to the Mall of America. The staff was fantastic and the food was great! It made our travel from Pennsylvania more enjoyable!

Try the Kitchen Special. It is two eggs, hashbrowns, sausage and toast and coffee. For a breakfast dish it is way up on the list of places to eat breakfast. If you are lucky enough, try sitting outside on a nice morning and enjoy yourself.
