Enjoy delicious Swedish-inspired cuisine with an American twist for breakfast, lunch and dinner at Sears Fine Food.

Sears was founded in 1938 by Hilbur and Ben Sears, a retired circus clown, who built a reputation for serving Swedish pancakes made from a recipe inherited from his wife’s Swedish family. The restaurant has changed hands a couple of times over the years but maintains its old-fashioned charm and a menu of American favorites, including a platter of 18 Swedish pancakes with jam and butter.
