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

Menu is very interesting, many good choices. Swedish pancakes I felt was a very good and tasty plus the corn beef Hash was up to par. The only thing I did not care for was my coffee cup was not filled at times and I had to ask them.

We visited on a Friday afternoon and it was very crowded. They did our best to seat us as quickly as possible, as we traveled with a few older folks who have trouble standing and waiting. Food was awesome and service was wonderful. I alway order the Swedish pancakes which never disappoint. Others in our group had Reuben, Swedish omelette.... More

I went with a friend who loves all things Swedish so not having a Swedish restaurant in Cleveland we ventured to the Kronor when we visited Chicago. The place has a homey diner fell and did have a mural of trolls on the wall to give it a Swedish feel. There were other accents within the place to represent Sweden... More

We visited with friends last week. It was the first time for all of us. The restaurant is small, across the street from North Park University, in a neighborhood that used to be more strongly Swedish. Across the street is the Sweden Shop. We ordered the brie appetizer and for dinner, meatballs (kotbollar) with lingonberries and pickled cucumbers, meatloaf with... More
