I want to like this place. The one star is for the fresh veggie toppings. Can't give it more than one star, though. Have had trouble with each order, and customer service has been sorely lacking. When I've asked questions or for clarification, the managers are defensive and not at all accommodating. I like to support local establishments. This will not be one of them.

If one is looking for that "neighberhood pizza joint", John's Pizza is the place. The pizza surpassed any chain and rivals any other Ma&Pa establishment. Family from Chicago and other parts of Minnesota request John's Pizza, whenever they come to town. So, here's to John's Pizza!!! May you have a long and prosperous establishment!!

John's Pizza is great. There is something about the combination of the crust, sauce, and salty cheese that I just crave. I have recently returned to Minnesota after living away for the last 10 years. I am so happy to be back near John's. I found myself unenthusiastic about pizza while we were away because it wouldn't be as good as John's.

The wide selection of toppings and the unique combinations on their menu is absolutely incredible. I recently ordered for a large party we had and was able to satisfy everyone in the crowd, from the virtual carnivore to the vegetarian. My 5 year-old nephew, from Colorado, was so taken with the pizza that he asked his mom if they could have it every night until they left to go back to Colorado.

It is a real gem and I strongly recommend it to all who love a good slice.

Have had the pleasure of having pizza in 29 different states, and this place is TOPS.
Better than Chicago, New York, Boston, Philly,...... Quality toppings, incredible sauce, fresh REAL cheese, and a crust that is just perfect whether thin OR thick.
Be prepeared for a LONG delivery time if ordering via phone, but worth it.

This is some of the best pizza I've ever eaten. The prices are fairly high, but the quality you get in return is SO VERY worth it. They have a wide variety of toppings, sauces, and cheeses to choose from, and some of the most wonderfully creative "specialty" pizzas I've ever seen - including a wide selection of vegetarian options. The regular and pan crusts are both excellent - soft and bready, not greasy or rubbery at all (I haven't had the thin crust). My personal favorite of their pizzas is the "It's Not Easy Being Green", with a basil pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. Another that I really liked while they had it was the "Chicken In The Garden" pizza, with grilled chicken, broccoli, and cheddar cheese. My family has also enjoyed some of their other pizzas, the lasagna, and the hoagies. They have refillable fountain drinks if you're eating in, or bottled drinks to go.

The building is situated on the 3-way intersection of Como Ave, Front Ave, and Dale St. in St. Paul. It's on one of the narrow corners, and shaped like a triangle; the dining room is relatively small and only has about 7 tables. However, there aren't usually many people eating in, and you could probably seat a group of 6 or so at the larger tables. They also do carry-out orders, either in person or over the phone, and their menu is available on their website if you want to peruse it before calling in or stopping by.

Cons: Price

this is so wonderful to explain this pizza. It is in a crazy location on a corner of como and dale st. The building in nestled in this intersection as if it was a piece of pizza too. Now the pizza!! I love thin crust so this is the only one I have tried, and of course I love plain cheese. well this is all you need, the cheese is sooooo tasty and the sauce harbors a great taste in your mouth.

John's Pizza is great, simply because it's nothing like chain pizza restaurants. Their crazy combinations of toppings like Chinese Fire Dragon (pepperoni, pineapple, and hot pepper rings) and Hog in the Bog (German bratwurst, wild rice, and mushrooms) wil make your tongue go wild and beg for more. Definitely one of the top pizza joints in the Twin Cities.

you pay for quality, and QUALITY is what you get at John's Pizza Cafe! Every item you can think of to top off your pizza, and the sauce is just as good! I've never had a better pizza!

Marvelous combinations of pizza come out of this corner building where Dale, Como and Front intersect. Try the Denver (ham, green pepper, onions) if you're tame; try Popeye's Pie (spinach!) if you're in the mood for something healthy; try the Chinese Fire Dragon (spicy!) if your taste buds need a lift. You can find chicken pizza here, too, which is unusual in a traditional pizza joint. This place is tucked away but it's well worth finding.

John's is the perfect pizza place. 1) Awesome selection of toppings - even some kind of "experimental" ones; 2) Quality pizza made with quality ingredients (not sure about you, but I can tell when my cheese is fake!!); 3) Little local

. I had not tried Johns Pizza Cafe until I moved to the Como/Dale neighborhood. I regret not checking it out sooner. The pizza is excellent and there are more than 30 toppings to choose from. Whether you are a meat-lover or a vegetarian,

A friend told me a story about the time John's was named Papa John's. Apparently the owner was paid milliions to give up the name. I decided to try the pizza and I was very surprised. It was the best pizza I ever had.There is a variety
