    Biscuits and Gravy eggs Benedict hybrid was so good. But also I couldn't move afterwards. Worth it.

    We've been a few times, and while it is a charming little diner, it doesn't quite live up to the legends. That being said, the cinnamon rolls are delicious, and staff is very friendly!

    Cinnamon buns are to die for. Splitting costs $1.75, so just order another instead of sharing.

    So filling - and excellent cinnamon rolls.

    BYOB so pick up a bottle of champagne on your way over. Everything is specious. Try the biscuit and gravy eggs Benedict.

    Few places, feel more comforting on Sundays between 10am and 2pm than this one. Portion sizes are prime for overeating. Try the Swedish pancakes and a side of sausage links. Read more

    These cinnamon rolls are amazing but make sure to leave room for the actual breakfast you've ordering afterwards!

    Known for its giant cinnamon rolls. These buttery buns are packed with cinnamon and brown sugar and smothered in a thick vanilla frosting while still warm from the oven. Read more

    This Swedish restaurant has earned a legendary reputation for its sticky sweet cinnamon rolls. The first Ann Sather opened in 1945 just a few storefronts down from this location. Read more

    Humongous portions, great bang for your buck. Cinnamon rolls are amazing. Only complaint is that the sausage was a bit too salty.

    Scandalous Scandinavian! Had the Swedish breakfast and it was delicious with the lingonberries on the side! Consider yourself warned- the cinnamon rolls are ginormous, in the size of my fist!

    If you enjoy biscuits and gravy, order the "Southern Decadence." With apologies to my mom, it's maybe the best I've ever had.

    Love the cinnamon rolls but I'm pretty sure my crab cake Benedict was made with imitation crab meat :(

    Famous for brunch, Sather flips the script on Mom's Day and offers a celebratory supper instead.

    It’s all about the cinnamon rolls—dense yet soft, drowning in a sugary glaze.

    The people involved with Ann Sather are also responsible for the "mauling of Wrigleyville." Don't support them!

    Absolutely incredible cinnamon rolls. It doesn’t really matter what else you order, as long as you have enough room for a cinnamon roll. -Anna Maltby, MC Editor

    Famous for its authentic Swedish meatballs, Ann Sather is loved by locals (Scandinavian or not) for its desserts - gigantic cinnamon rolls and marzipan cream cakes.

    This place is mediocre at best. And yet somehow always has a line of people outside if it. Store bought Cinnamon rolls taste better as for the whole menu? Overpriced fake swedish breakfast

    Half block west at Belmont & Sheffield there should be 2 good restaurants (for lunch or dinner): Leona's Restaurant & Pizza Capri. Both are good. about $9-20/person plus drinks.
