When it comes to Swedish pancakes, people may not think of Wisconsin, but they should. In Door County, Al Johnson’s serves authentic Swedish pancakes in a cozy environment that transports diners to Scandaniva.
Al Johnson’s is a family owned and operated business that has been serving residents and visitors of Sister Bay for over 50 years. In the beginning, Al Johnson did it all from washing to cooking. In 1960, Al met his would-be wife, Ingert. She brought authenticity to the restaurant with her Scandinavian roots. Visitors can thank Ingert for the two Butiks (boutiques) where they can purchase souvenirs and gifts from Europe as well as lingonberries and Swedish pancake mix from Al Johnson’s to take home and make.
Breakfast begins at 6 am and is served all day at the restaurant. Diners can pair their pancakes with sweet toppings such as Door County cherries or strawberries and cream. On the savory side, Swedish meatballs are available. Lunch and dinner items are available from 11 am until 8 pm daily.
During tourism season (late May until mid-October), goats graze the grass roof that tops the restaurant. The goats have become so popular that they even have their own Goat Cam.
