Was downtown helping friends pick up some items and decided to to to lunch. Almost ended up at another place, but one of my friends mentioned Tre Kronor and we tossed and coin and off we went. Very cute place with friendly hosts and servers. Another couple of friends decided to meet us there and we couldn't be served without... More

OMG!! Their quiche is exquisite! I enjoy quiche, a friend that joined me wasn't a big fan - UNTIL he tried theirs. Perfect crispy crust, moist custard (not too eggy, not too milky), the proportion of filling is also great. The Swedish pancakes are also good. This place is on a good rotation of places that I want to stop... More

Quick lunch with my husband landed us at Tre Kroner. Quaint restaurant and great for conversation. Service was excellent and food was delicious. We both ordered quiche for lunch; ham /asparagus and spinach/mushroom. I have had eaten quiche from several places, but none have been presented as well as Tre Kroner. Light, fluffy, flacky crust. It was like a huge... More

We stopped here for lunch and both had the salmon and dill quiche. The portion was huge, but unbelievably delicious - best quiche I ever had ( and I'm fussy). Came with really good fresh fruit.

The restaurant was serving breakfast and lunch when I went. There were only a few item that were Swedish: pancakes, limpa bread and meatballs. The food was okay but I wouldn't go again.

Every time we are in the area this is our go to spot. We love the Norwegian meatball sandwich with potatoes. The Salmon quiche is always good also. Everything looks good but we always end up ordering the same thing. Looking forward to our next trip! Small eating area but clean. Efficient and friendly staff. No refills on soda, sold... More

My husband and I have had the pleasure of dining at Tre Kronor twice, once for breakfast and most recently for dinner. Both dining experiences were exceptional. The food is delicious,creative, fresh, and plentiful. The restaurant has a warm, cozy, and friendly atmosphere. Both times our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. For breakfast, the cinnamon rolls alone are well worth... More

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
