We had a late lunch here. Home made Swedish meatballs, real mashed potatoes. Very fresh and delicious. Authentic in every way. I had the pulled pork sandwich. Juicy and hot. Friendly wait staff and the home made rhubarb raspberry pie was out of sight!

Love this wonderful little cafe! Took my sister, who lives nearby, here for a belated birthday lunch. Always welcoming, comfy and very good food. No matter if you're full, you can't forget the best pie next to my own! We had the cherry pie this visit and it was great! Make this one of your stops when visiting the area...you... More

This restaurant is great! Good home cooking and there are even condos for rent upstairs. They are super clean, in great shape, and all the amenities needed for a weekend family trip or a week long business trip.

This is the cozy, clean Borgen that has been around for many decades. The pies are still the best! Breakfasts are good, too, and the wait staff is friendly and kind.
