Had the pepperoni pizza. It was awesome. They have found a way to make even the grease taste good. Also recommend the salads.

John's is a neighborhood institution. It started out in a small wedge-shaped space across the intersection from its current location, but moved to a much larger, nicer space a few years ago. They have lots of interesting specialty pizzas, including many vegetarian options, or you can build your own with many toppings and several sauces to choose from. The menu... More

Lots of different options for pizza toppings, great pizza and really wonderful treats. I had a chocolate chip cookie and a huge rice krispi treat. They also have ice cream!

We were needing lunch in an hour and knew nothing about St. Paul restaurants. This one was away from the crowded area, had decent reviews and decent prices. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table and the service is very quick, but the food is better than fast food.. A good variety of hoagies.... More

This place has been around forever, though this location (across the intersection from the old place) is fairly new. I stopped here on a whim a couple of months ago and have gone back weekly (for takeout pizza) ever since. The dining area is spotless and the staff are friendly. This would be a great place to bring a group... More

We recently moved away from Saint Paul and one of the things we really miss is John's. Friendly service and the best pizzas ever. It was a staple for us over the years. Friends took us to other places, but we always returned to John's (and won some of them over too).

Ordered here for a work lunch. The hot hoagies are very good. The tater tots aren't bad but nothing to write home about.

Like their cheeseburgers but need to microwave/bake the tater tots that come with them. Good salads. Kind of expensive. But tasty!

I am in disbelief that Johns Pizza Café 616 Como Ave St Paul MN gave me so much grief when calling to use a “credit” I was promised. When I called I spoke to an older sounding women that didn’t seem to care that I paid for a pizza that went from my front door into my trash. I ordered... More

I get pizza from here often, their pizza is my favorite in St. Paul. My favorite pizza is the California Dreamer. They use fresh, high quality ingredients. It's a traditional type pizza, done really well.
