Could this get picture get anymore cute?

We were lucky to get some great help in the Butik this weekend from Gracie

We are all set and open after a doozy of a storm that knocked power out in Northern Door. Thanks to the people who worked all night to get to juice flowing.

We have so many local customers, that we see daily, weekly, seasonly, or yearly. It is heartbreaking when someone we love & admire passes away. Orv. .we here at Al Johnson's LOVE you & will miss seeing your smiling face. Every time I eat a "Bullar" (Swedish cinnamon type roll), I will dip it in my coffee & toast to you!!! heart emoticon Our baker is baking some today in your honor. heart emoticon Here with 1 of our past servers. grandaughter Martha. You always where quite . the character Grandpa! The man who taught me how to handle firearms. How to wittle toys out of old thread spools. Always had a story or five. World War 2 Vet. Violinist, buisnessman, sailor, photographer, pilot, roselmaler and world class potatoe salad maker. Snappy dresser. Father of five, grandfather of 8 and great grandfather of 4. Taught me the patience to sit silently enough to witness multiple hummingbirds coming to the feeders on sunny days in the little slice of heaven that is Door County. 97 years on this planet! Say hi to Granny for all of us! — with Orvin Svien.

This couple came in last year for her Birthday!!! Just to have Dinner & Lingonberry Wine!!! Cheers to you, and Grattis on your Fodelsedag!!! Happy Birthday!

For a couple of our customers that came in to Al's the other day, they brought their friend "Flat Amy, or Amy on a Stick" in for her birthday!!! she got to hang with our staff, cook Swedish pancakes, hang out on the roof with the goats, and make meatballs!!! Happy Birthday to Flat Amy!!!! Wish you could've made it in person!

Still a Door County Must See

No matter what anyone says, see Al Johnson's. It has been a part of Door County forever. The decor is old, the menu is not all Swedish food, the waiters speak some English, and during the summer season the wait may be long, but the experience is old Door County. The Swedish food may not be the same as that in Chicago where my mother-in-law (100% Swede) joined the Swedish community as a young girl in 1920, but it is Swedish enough that it made me wish she was there to enjoy it. Our meal for four was an inexpensive $120.00 including tip, and everyone was satisfied. My steak was not the best cut of meat, but it was prepared properly. We had no room for dessert, unfortunately, because they looked great. r We were there in the off off off season (Door County in March?!) and everything was very very good. I think those were the same chairs they had back in 1968. r I can't think of anything negative to say. The four of us enjoyed our evening experience and went back for a special fund raising breakfast with Swedish pancakes and lingonberries. 100% of the proceeds of the breakfast went to a charitable cause, something Al Johnson does all the time. Al Johnson's is a huge part of Door County and still a big must see.

Al's is GREAT!

I live around 20 miles away, so when i go to visit my grandma we occasionally go to Al's. It's such a great atmosphere, and being from Swedish roots myself, I think it's wonderful! It's so popular though, that there's a little bit of a wait to get a table. The waitresses are VERY friendly and the service fast. The prices are reasonable, and you're just a few minutes away from the beach, and LOTS of shops in downtown Sister Bay. So, if you're ever in Door County stop by Al's. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
