I have not been here in a while, but wanted to walk the dog to get breakfast. We had lovely service, and a good meal. We met a neighbor there as well, so our experience was great. I am glad to see they serve potatoes and toast for breakfast, as for a while they did either one or the other,... More

We've often popped in to Oaks for breakfast and it's never let us down. This time, we tried it for lunch and it wasn't good. We both had chicken caesar salads and given the cost, they weren't up to par. The lettuce was limp, the chicken mediocre and the quantity poor. The service was very quick and friendly but we...

We haven't been to a restaurant where the service was so attentive. We were in awe right from the serving of the hot tea we ordered. Tea arrived on a large plate, with 2 tea bags, lemon, milk, an extra pot of hot water - awesome! Had to try the special Apple Pancake (sorry, can't recall the exact name). Waiter... More

We had driven up from Phoenix and went in for coffee. The establishment is just how I imagined an old American diner. The other customers all seemed to be having breakfast and, although we didn't want food, we perused the menu while waiting for our coffee. The menu was varied and reasonably priced and there were several dishes, including a... More

The regulars know a good place to have breakfast. Everything was cooked perfectly- juevos rancheros were excellent, just the right amount of heat. Corned beef hash was fair, with the eggs just right. Great waffle. Fair prices. Old but comfortable..

Shared a chicken fried steak breakfast with my wife. Food was excellent and the chicken fried steak was as good as we have ever had. Portions are very large and entrees can be easily shared by most couples. Service was excellent and prices very fair.

We have eaten here several times for breakfast and lunch. It has lots of character and characters who go there. It is a locals hang out so fun to people watch. Our food has always been excellent. Service is good and our food arrives quickly and hot. Fun to go because it is like "walking back in time".

Very good breakfast selection and quality...just avoid the coffee at all costs. The service is excellent, and this will allow you to study locals and clueless Minnesotans at play.

My friend and I ordered breakfast Sunday , May 14 2016. Service was excellent. I ordered eggs over easy with hash browns and 2 sausage patties and marble rye toast. Coffee is bad. I do not like strong coffee but this tasted artificial and oily. Sausage so greasy I half finished one and took the other for my dog after... More
