Classic diner fare for breakfast & lunch draws locals to this narrow nook with an old-school vibe.- Google

The experience was really amazing, with only one aisle for sitting and waiting and not many seats. It's something you will not experience elsewhere. As a plus the service was pretty great, authentic, and they were rather funny. It takes a long time to get a seat and your food, but after the hour or so my waffle and bacon, although fairly simple, were spectacular. I would definitely bring some people back with me. Something else I love that topped off the experience for me was the fact they had toy dinosaurs for children to play with while waiting and eating to get them off their devices. I would definitely recommend going if you have two hours to spare and are in the area for a great breakfast.

Great experience and good food. Nothing mind blowing, breakfast food is either bad or good, they are good here and gets the job done. Would recommend for the whole experience. Good staff and service. There was a wait when I went but it was not too bad, I've waited much longer for much less.

They don't take cards! But wow amazing experience! The food was perfect! Friendly cozy atmosphere! Great prices and something unique. Get there early! Others will stand behind you waiting for your seat! Can't wait to come back!

Best breakfast in town, but queues could be insane so get there early. It's as much the food as the atmosphere that makes al's breakfast for what it is.

Went to Al's this morning, best greasy spoon in the state, 14 stools, situated in the middle of Dinkytown. Nostalgic of its nearly 70 year history. Awesome breakfast, some of the best I've had. The staff was welcoming and humorous. Worth the wait, and especially worth taking the time to check out this cozy diner.

Super cute breakfast cafe! The food is absolutely delicious. But expect to wait for a while to be seated. There is only room for about 20 people. Don't go here with groups. Two people is the best.

You have to experience Al's. Great staff, some abuse and even better food. I always take out of town guests there so they can have a good time and a good breakfast.
