The Al's Story

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.
