This is the classic diner experience with classic diner food... Don't expect anything more or less! If that's your baseline, this place is great! Prices are good and helpings are large.

Was working outside of the cafe and decided to give it a shot since I love supporting the community and small business. Ordered the sausage egg and cheese sandwich on white bread with hash browns, delicious. Everything is cooked in front of you and fresh. Not a lot of room but I was a to go anyway. Will definitely visit... More

We stopped by here on our way to the airport on a weekday morning. Counter seating for about 12, a few inside tables and some outside tables. Mostly locals coming in for their breakfast. We both had their Kitchen special of sausage, eggs and hash browns with either toast or pancake. The pancake is huge, filling the plate. The breakfast... More

one of the most iconic diners you will ever visit. this looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, but in all reality it is much more on the inside. Really cool to see the food made directly in front of you... and if you came for a fancy meal you are in the wrong place. This is... More

Our Kitchen is a tiny little restaurant smack in the middle of a residential neighbourhood just a short distance from Lake Calhoun. After breakfast at Our Kitchen a walk down the lake is a good idea. Unless you can scoop one of the 2 or 3 outdoor tables you have to sit at the counter which isn't necessarily a bad... More

Try the Kitchen Special. It is two eggs, hashbrowns, sausage and toast and coffee. For a breakfast dish it is way up on the list of places to eat breakfast. If you are lucky enough, try sitting outside on a nice morning and enjoy yourself.

Yes, the food is great, and yes it's a great value, and yes it's a tiny building, but the most noticeable thing about Our Kitchen was the team working there - from the welcome to taking our order to the friendly banter...many times when strangers enter such an establishment you'll get the cold shoulder...but not at Our Kitchen.

I have been here twice now. The second time because I had to take the hubby since I knew that it was just the divey little place he would love! A great place for breakfast. Love that you can substitute a pancake for your toast. This way you get to satisfy both your savory and sweet cravings all in one... More

A friend and I stopped by and had an amazing brunch. I am all about the greasy spoon and this establishment hit the spot. If you are feeling a little under the weather from the night before and need some good food to relax on, This is your place. The omelette's are amazing and if you love cheese you will... More
