A very nice family owned restaurant. For breakfast, there are many choices. A favorite is the blueberry oat pancake. One is as large as a large plate. They have all the standard choices of variations on eggs, sausage ,bacon, omelets ,French toast etc. Many salad and sandwich choices for lunch. Dinner varies from Chinese dishes to meatloaf. Excellent food, service... More

Our motorcycle riding group meets at the North Pole a couple times a year for breakfast, we usually have 20 to 25 riders, they get us in and out with good food and service.

Don't let the dark tinted windows scare you off! Once inside the North Pole, you'll find a bright, clean and pleasant diner decorated with the owners' photos and mementos of their trips to the Arctic. The food was absolutely fine, the service good, portions large, and the prices completely reasonable. We each ordered a hot dinner: breaded veal cutlet or... More

Have eaten here many times and it's my husbands favorite place for pancakes! They also know how to cook their eggs and bacon! Mine were perfectly done. Good service too.

We have business and personal meetings across the Twin Cities metro and are always looking for great places. This is one of our favorites. The down home atmosphere and friendly staff serve excellent food at very reasonable prices. The comfort food is very good and the sandwiches are as well. The $3.50 up-charge to switch from "chips" to "coleslaw and... More

We went with a very large party. The service was friendly. The pancake was huge and perfectly cooked. The kids loved their hot chocolate. We felt like we were in a small town diner. It was great. Would recommend.

You can't beat the friendly service and great breakfast. This place is always packed when we go on Saturday mornings. Service is fast and always courteous, friendly and fun. Breakfast is nothing fancy just good homemade-like fare. My favorite is the blueberry oat cake. Recent expansion and updates have allowed for more customers which they have adjusted to quite easily.... More

5 stars means that I had such a good dining experience that I think everyone should make a point of eating at the North Pole Restaurant. I've driven past this restaurant 1,000 times and my wife and I stopped in for the first time yesterday. Unassuming from the outside, when we stepped in the restaurant I was very impressed; it...

I had breakfast here with colleagues after a VERY early morning flight. It was great! Prices were low and servings were plentiful. Food was delicious and served quickly. Great little local hidden gem.

We stop here every year when we visit friends in Newport and have the best breakfast ever! We're high maintenance but they never bat an eye and we get it just as ordered. The oatcakes are dinner plate size and are so flavorful! The special satisfies my partner's healthy appetite. We had bacon and ham and they were yummy. The... More
