Burnsville's Downtown Café

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.”
