One of our favorite restaurants, Tre Kroner, was recommended in today’s Red Eye. According to the author,
Tre Kroner, a 20-table storefront owned by Patty Rasmussen (a Norweigan-American) and her husband, Larry Anderson (a Swedish-American), blends the traditional dishes of its owners heritage and updates them for American palates. It also does a brisk brunch business, thanks – at least in part – to the delicious lingonberries, which make several appearances on the menu.
We first discovered Tre Kroner on the way to a dentist appointment. There was a huge brunch crowd gathered in front. Anyplace with a line like that has to be good! So we checked it out a few weeks later and fell in love with the place. For one thing, the food is heavenly. They offer a brief menu of perfectly-prepared dishes. Their omelets are the lightest we’ve ever had. We also really like their salmon eggs benedict and their rotating assortment of fresh-baked pastries, which are filled with lemon, apple, raspberry or hazelnut.
The atmosphere is very pleasant. The restaurant is staffed by attentive, cheerful Swedish-looking waitresses. The setting is unique in that it occupies two floors of an old home. The downstairs dining room is bustling with activity while upstairs it is quaint and peaceful. Even the upstairs bathroom is charming, with its lace curtains and antique claw foot bathtub.
The prices are so reasonable they almost seem antique too. We’ve never spent more than $25 including tip on breakfast for both of us. It’s a charming little place where you can enjoy a great meal at a great price.
We recommend: Tre Kroner!
