Learn about our humble beginnings...
The story of Jensen’s Café began in the post-depression era in rural Fremont, Nebraska. Alvin Jensen lived in Fremont and operated a small gas station along Broad Street until taking over the Café across the street. Little did he know how long – and far – this little restaurant would go.
Al Jensen ran the Café in Fremont for over 30 years. They prided themselves on their homemade soup and other home-style delights. And every five years, in honor of their Danish heritage, customers received free aebleskiever (Danish doughnuts). Their recipe for success seems simple “…hire the best people … tell ‘em to buy the best products they can get and cook it the best way they know how … give people the best service you can … and the money takes care of itself.”
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
I love this place! My favorite is the Cajun Breakfast. The pancakes and the home made syrup is to die for. I never knew how much I love this place until I moved away out of state. Every time I come back, this is the one place I visit.
Jensen's Cafe is always a lovely local place to sit down and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The prices are fair and the service is great.
Creative menu, local onsite ownership and loyal staff who recognize you. Jensen's Cafe is a winner every time.

The service is great and the food quality is excellent; everything from the homemade butter maple syrup to the orange juice...it's a fun, local establishment with outdoor seating as well. Would definitely recommend this to my friends and family!
