If you want to be sure to have a fantastic breakfast, this is the place. They make delicious, hot, quickly served food. It is located on a side street in downtown Delafield in easy walking distance to everything. It is usually busy and you may have to wait for a table on some weekend mornings, but the crowd is friendly... More

We love that you get your food super quick and it's fun to eat outside. The Chorizzo Omelette is the bomb!

This a favorite place to meet our friends for Sunday breakfast. Always good. Great variety- standard fare for the guys, more adventuresome for the gals. Spinach feta omelet, breakfast burrito, seafood eggs Benedict. Their chorizo sauce adds flavor to any egg dish. Get there before 8:30 to avoid a long wait. Friendly staff too.

This restaurant has been in Delafield for over 35 years. It has changed owners once, and never skipped a beat. It is just a great local meeting place for the community that serves Great Americana food. It is only open for breakfast and Lunch. Be prepared for the place to be very busy. If you have to wait, it is... More

I have been visiting the Lumber Inn for many years. The experience is always excellent. The service is well above par and the results of the food preparation are outstanding. I have ordered many different items on the breakfast menu, but the Breakfast Sandwich and the Eggs Benedict are my favorite choices

My wife and I had some business to take care of in the area. We love to find great non-chain restaurants. We want to support entrepreneurs. We saw that Lumber Inn had great reviews and thought we'd check it out. It was fantastic!! It would be in the top breakfast restaurants for us in the Milwaukee area, like Mad Rooster... More
