There's nothing better than finding a delicious hole-in-the-wall restaurant that has stood the test of time. Whether it's the mom-and-pop friendly service, or the specialty foods cooked just the way you like; there's something special about a breakfast joint like this.

The long-standing Al's Breakfast is known as a right of passage for many Minnesotans. There's a time in your life before you've had Al's and after. It's been an institution in the Twin Cities Metro since the 1950s and has some of the best breakfast you'll ever eat.

Al's Breakfast was started by Al Bergstrom in 1950 and is currently owned and operated by Doug Grina and Alison Kirwin.

Al's serves made-from-scratch breakfast fare at a 14 seat counter in the Dinkytown neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. We don't have a freezer, deep fryer, or microwave oven because we believe that meals taste best when they're made from real ingredients by people who care. That, and we don't have space for anything else.
