My sister took me to this little Swedish restaurant for breakfast when I told her I wanted a "hearty breakfast". And I was very satisfied. Its a cozy little corner restaurant with wood furniture and friendly waitresses, the christmas decorations were very cute. I had to poke fun at the mural on the wall, though. It was a large painting all along the far wall of little swedish people (dwarves or elves or something) with long noses and tails all dancing around and looking jolly. Anyway, the service was great, I had english breakfast tea and eggs, swedish potatoes, whole wheat toast and a few slices of bacon. very good. The potatoes were fantastic. and the meal wasn't too pricey either. I even had an extra cup of tea and wasn't charge for it. Next time I'll be sure to step out of my box a little more and try something new. My sister swears by the salmon and dill quiche. but she says all of their quiches are great.

The first time I heard about this place is from my neighbor when at her late husband's funeral (RIP) and her would frequent. Actually, they used to run the Swedish shop across the street. I then was at work when a patient had "Check Please" on PBS doing a favorable review on this place. I first tried this place on a hot summer afternoon shortly after seeing the program. I walked in to find a pretty small, quaint, restaurant seating about 20. On the wall, I found the "calling card" of Food Network's Guy Fieri who did an episode of "Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives". The menu is hand written and not many item to choose from. The prices are affordable as well. On my first visit, I had the open faced Norwegian meatball sandwich. The sandwich was nice and light with just the right amount of gravy on it, didn't drench the sandwich at all. I returned a week later in the morning and tried the Oslo omelet, omelet with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and dill, served with potato. Normally, the idea of fish of any kind with eggs wouldn't appeal to me. But after the first bite I was hooked. Since then, I find myself coming back at least once a month for breakfast. From their quiches to omelets, Belgium waffle to mid day sandwiches, there isn't an item on the menu not worth trying twice. A good place to dine on your own, with the family, or a small group.

Excellent Swedish ethnic restaurant in the North Park neighborhood. Service is often good and the atmosphere is charming. However, weekends sometimes mean long waits especially for brunch. Small space dinning al fresco available during the warmer months.
Regarding food. I mostly ate breakfast items and they always very had tasty, fresh eggs done in many ways.
For those craving for sweet I recommend Pannekaker: Special Swedish pancakes with lingo berries or real Belgian Waffles served with
This place is much more authentic and better than Ann Sather.
Very affordable dining considering the quality.
They even have imported Danish pastry, which you can take home.

This place is one of the nicer, small venues in a city for simple but tasty breakfast. Pretty fast service. There could be a wait time especially on weekends. However, they have extra space upstairs.
For sweet tooth they have maple danishes, they say imported from Sweden.

Pros: Good hearty breakfast

The eggs are good, the potatoes are even better and the roast beef sandwich with mushrooms is so tasty. The staff is super friendly and the coffee is better than the chain down the street(4bucks).

I was very disappointed in my most recent trip here. On an early Monday night there were two servers and only a few tables but service was not good. Salad came before being finished with appetizer. Had to ask for more water. Entree came out just as finishing salad. Didn't ask about food until ready to take plates away.
Also, the food that night was only mediocre. Walnut crusted trout was not crusty but mushy. Soupy sauce that covered fish made it mushy. Bread pudding for dessert had no flavor. Maybe it was a different cook than usual but I'll not go back for some time. Too pricey for poor service and only fair food.

Tre Kronor has some of the flakiest and most delicious pastries I have ever had. I didn't know much about Swedish cuisine before we started coming here but I like trying new things and they are always really encouraging and informative. I think last time I went I had a bread called limpa (not sure on spelling) that was very good and an very tasty omelette. The restaurant is a converted house so it has quite a bit of old world charm.

This place is just great! It's a quaint little restaurant on the corner with great ambiance! Everything we ordered was prepared with care and was a pleasant change from the usual breakfast places. The Sweedish spin on breakfast made it especially interesting. The fresh squeezed OJ, cinnamon roll and quiche were all excellent. The fruit was also a pleasant surprise. There was a good assortment, including strawberries, melon, kiwi, pineapple, etc. Additionally, everything was also reasonable in price ($2.25 for a small OJ, $8 for a quiche, $2 for cinnamon roll) and portion sizes are just right! We'll definitely be returning!

we went there on a sunday midmorning. we waited 30 mins to be seated, it was really busy. the food took quite long, not sure if they are just very busy. i had their french toast and my husband had hamburger for lunch. both were good. I should have ordered lunch. but i will come back to try their lunch and dinner menu.

While most tourists flock to the better-known Ann Sathers Swedish restaurant a mile west on Clark Street, this West Andersonville gem is worth seeking out. Prices are reasonable and food is superb. Creative dishes and nice traditional Swedish decor in this rennovated home with two stories for dining. Swedish favorites like pancakes with lingonberries, potato and veal sausages are complimented by innovative specials.

PROS: Delicious food, great Atmosphere
CONS: Street parking limited

This little swedish restaurant in the northwest side is fabulous! the food is very good, it's not too expensive and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable.
if you go there try the eggs benedicts, one of my favorites ! but if you go on sundays be prepared to wait : it gets really crowded.

The food is good, no doubt about it. That's all you want is a great meal at decent price. The salmon appetizer was delicious. I had to try their swedish meatballs and it definitely hit the spot. Delicious

I live a short, walking distance away from Tre Kronor and I used to eat brunch there every weekend until my protruding tummy begged for me to cut back. It is heavenly, and breakfast/brunch is splendid with choices like orange French toast, Swedish pancakes with lingonberries, and fluffy stacks of waffles topped with mounds of fresh fruit. The rosy-cheeked waitstaff are consistently friendly and helpful. And even though the place is always packed with children, they never seem to cry or complain about the food! (I think it's because it feels so much like home.)

Great breakfast. The omelets were delicious. Dinner entrees were good too. Large portions. Tasty deserts and appetizers. Excellent service. We went back three times. Just 3 miles north of Andersonville. Worth the drive from downtown Chicago.

Offering consistently excellent service on repeat visits, Tre Kronor is now near the top of recommended lists - both to out-of-towners and residents. Decor is humble, service exceptional, and the food the real draw. Tre Kronor knows how to offer daily specials - often so many, the choices become dizzying. Seafood is a good bet, here, and the desserts change as well. If the bread pudding is on the menu, it is a must-have. For such service and food, one would expect a shocker of a bill at the end of the meal - but Tre Kronor serves it all up with a smile for less than one would expect. Bring your own wine to make the meal special, as it is definitely BYOB.

This is one of the city's best-kept secrets -- excellent cuisine, friendly service, pleasant ambience, and reasonable prices. The breakfast menu is outstanding: imaginative quiches with fruit salad, several ambitious omelettes, waffles topped with fresh fruit and real whipped cream, Swedish pancakes with lingonberries, and pastries, all served with excellent coffee. Lunches include salads and sandwiches, tasty soups, and enticing desserts. The owners are often in the dining room, serving coffee and chatting with guests.

It's always a treat at Tre Kronor. Wondefully cute place with perhaps the nicest waitstaff in the city. We always have a different server, and he/ she is always incredibly friendly and pleasant. The food is good, too. Delicious fresh squeezed orange juice, homemade pastries, tasty soup and sandwiches, etc. The space is small, and fills up quickly, but they never rush you. Always puts me in a good mood to come here.
