Stopped for breakfast with daughters on way to ski trip in Minneapolis. Great breakfast and great service. Super friendly staff. Would love to stop back and have a great desert from the cake/pie case.

Went to Olivia's with my in laws, who were visiting from out of state, on a week day evening during the fair. They weren't super busy, but it seemed like they were running with minimal staff--typical of everywhere during fair week!--so we were totally fine...More
