Waited in line about 20 minutes to get a table. No one seems to mind the wait as it goes out the door. Awesome breakfast! We each order different food and loved it. The pancakes are huge that come with $8 breakfast so if you bring a little one don't order separately for them and unless your starving 1 cake... More

We've had breakfast here twice. Food was excellent and prices reasonable. The waitstaff was friendly and efficient. We didn't get there until 10 a.m., so the crowd was thinning, but a table didn't stay open for long. They have a regular menu, but breakfast is served all day and that looks like what just about everyone was ordering. We'll go... More

We stopped in here on a Sunday morning not knowing how small it is! Not many tables so generally expect to wait. We walked right in and sat down however. Breakfast was very tasty! And lots of food too. Reasonably priced. One of us had 3 pancakes for $6 and they could have fed 6 of us!!

We had breakfast yesterday at Louis'. It felt like stepping back in time. Small counter with low swivel seats. You could see into the kitchen easily to see the cooks hard at work. The waitress was efficient and neutral in her reaction to the customer. She was very busy. They kept your coffee filled. It was basic breakfast with a... More

Maybe I've been privy to some really good breakfast places because this restaurant was good, sure, but not 5 star. Our food was great and reasonably priced. It's a very small restaurant which meant people had to wait to sit and the line was out the door. That must mean it's fantastic right? My expectations were high and not fulfilled.... More

Really enjoyed breakfast here. I had hash browns smothered in 2 over easy eggs with a side of French toast. They have 3 homemade syrup toppings to choose from....maple, Blueberry, & a cinnamon that I chose which made my French toast taste like a perfect caramel roll. The service was fast, coffee & all was superb!

The food was great and the portions were generous. Not a fancy place but a warm, family business place. The service was very quick. We will definitely make it a regular stop when visiting Duluth.

This place is a Duluth classic. If you are looking for some of the tastiest breakfast in town, look no further. Also, prices here are remarkably low, my wife and I ate breakfast here for 14 bucks. Also, their pancakes are massive, larger than the plate they are served on, so save yourself a little money and don't order too... More
