    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!

    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!

    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

    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

    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

    The cinnamon rolls plus the southern decadence..... dangerously delicious. Expect a nap in the afternoon.

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

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

    A local favorite that’s known for its Swedish pancakes with lingonberries and freshly baked, high–rise cinnamon rolls pillowy enough to sleep on.

    Of course the cinnamon rolls are to die for...probably breakfast is good, but skip the Rueben if you are a connisour!

    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.

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