Jensen's Cafe always has great food, a good selection, and friendly service every time. We are gluten & dairy free and always have a number of options to choose from.

We went here several times while working in the area. Very good breakfasts and dinners. The service is always quick and pleasant and the food delicious. Be prepared for a wait on the weekend mornings but they serve their own fresh brewed coffee while your waiting. They serve breakfast all day but their dinner menu is just like home cooking.

OMG, soooo awesome! The decisions for breakfast was difficult, to say the least... I tried the Huevos Rancheros with cheesy hashbrowns, and because I heard their Lemon Ricotta Pancakes were great, I got one on the side. Had enough for the next day's breakfast. You will not leave hungry!

Ordered eggs benedict but didn't realize that to get traditional style you had to specify on an Eng. Muffin or it comes on a pancake. The worst Hollandaise sauce ever. I'll avoid that - if I ever go back. Over priced and quality is slipping.

The Jensen Cafe reminded us of the First Watch chain, and our meals were served hot. Unfortunately, the sandwich for my wife was a bit tough, and my toast similar. My eggs were hot, which was nice. Service was only average, with few offers to refill our drinks. If we visit Burnsville again, we probably would look for other options.

Was recommended by the hotel I was staying at to eat here. Great place for breakfast and coffee. The food was awesome and we could sit outside. The patio area was very nice. Small cafe that is perfect for hanging out and conversing with friends. The service was great and I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!

We recently visited Jensen's Cafe for my mom's birthday. There were seven of us, and the seating was cramped. The food, however, was good, and the service was friendly. The coffee was good and strong!

This is a great local cafe, with long-time, steady staff and consistently excellent customer service. The restaurant feels like a local cafe of previous times where people met to have an unrushed meal and greet others they knew who were also dining there. The menu has many unique items, such as some Tex-Mex omelets and Scandinavian pancakes, as well as... More
