We had a very nice breakfast/brunch here. Eggs were nothing special, we ordered aebleskivers and they were okay. I STRONGLY recommend ordering Danish pancakes, which come as either two or three. They are thin, American-looking pancakes which are rolled/folded like a crepe. MUCH better than...More

Crowded diner atmosphere, but good service. We enjoyed the hot dogs and fresh fries. Then shared a melt-in-your-mouth fried Danish dessert which is also available for takeout at a walk-up window on the street.

Great breakfast, had the Danish omelet, coffee kept on coming, very attentive service, and, obviously, a very popular place.

Cute and cozy. Great prices for breakfast. I had to try the abelskivers which were very tasty but I couldn’t get through all three of them. A very good spot.
