Be prepared to wait a bit if you go on weekends, but it is worth it, the place is really cool, the staff entertaining, the food delicious!

i thought I would pop over and have breakfast on a Sunday. What a treat. There are only 14 stools as I am told. There is a line that starts on the sidewalk and goes to the back of the diner. From there, you are...More

I have to say the pancakes were sub par. Not the best flavor and the presentation looked like something you would find at home. Delicious hash browns but not much else. It has a collage atmosphere, it is really hard to eat there with more...More

Al only has seating for 15 people, however, Al and his staff and the food, makes up for it. Al serves the BEST pancakes, egg's, and combinations you will ever find. People from NY come to Al's for his James Beard Award breakfast. Come and...More

If you like your meal with a row of folks waiting right behind you then this is the place. Limited seating combined with good food makes for a wait & the need to eat quickly.

The breakfast was excellent! Food is made to order therefore it is very fresh. Very fun vibe inside as well as outside in Dinkytown. Favorite place of students and U of MN athletes. You will not be disappointed if you eat here.

This place is a local institution and very, very charming...if you accept that you'll probably have to wait an hour or more. It's a tiny place (it seats 14 people) but oh so vibrant! They only serve breakfast. Their choices are awesome, they offer anything...More

it just doesn't get much better than Al's. It takes cozy to a new extreme, 14 stools and a long counter but that's part of the charm. I've been going here since 2001 and it is always the same, just like you were there yesterday....More
