I adore Muddy Waters. It's getting a little pathetic, whenever planning a date destination with friends I shamefully ask if we can just go to Muddy Waters another time. I love it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
On my last visit I went for brunch with a friend and we decided to split a couple of things. We got the breakfast pizza that you can pick the toppings, we chose sausage and onions. The pizza came out and it was huge, like split between four people huge. It was so excellent though that we ate almost all of it. We also split the French Toast Bread Pudding, having never met a bread pudding I didn't like, I knew I had to try Muddy Water's version. It did not disappoint. It was served warm with syrup and a big glob of whipped cream.
I have to give a special shout out to the bloody mary at Muddy Waters. The spice level is PERFECT! I like my bloodies spicy and not too thick and this bloody meets my criteria.
Service is always top notch, friendly and attentive. The food and drinks are great and you won't spend your whole pay check in a visit. So worth a weekly visit.
The Fulton Farmer's Market is better than ever this year! They seem to have a lot more vendors/booths then when I visited last summer. I love this because then I can support multiple farmers as opposed to just one.
Last weekend I got corn and raspberries from one farmer, then zucchini and tomatoes from another and blueberries from a whole different vendor. The produce is always fresh and tastes SO much better then the dribble you get at Cub. They also have the most beautiful bouquets to choose from; I also bought some bomb Cajun brats there a couple of weeks ago.
Gai Gai Thai no longer frequents the market but don't fret, Chef Shack is still going strong as well as Patisserie 46. They also have Big River Pizza now which I am jones-ing to gobble up on my next visit.
Tip: You should probably be starving when you go to the market-then you don't have to choose just one thing to eat- try something from every vendor.
I have now dined at Maude for dinner a couple of times.
Maude is the perfect date spot! It's dimly lit to hide any looming zits or stained shirts (both things I am familiar with), it has cozy, cute little two person booths and they have live music a lot of nights. They have a great wine list and craft cocktails and the servers are always attentive yet not annoyingly so.
Their entrees are also very good sized, perfect for splitting with your honey.
Head to Maude the next time you want to treat someone to a lovely evening.
Whoa Shirred Eggs! You shocked me with your greatness.
Your perfectly sliced ham and mushrooms doused in the creamy truffle sauce were a divine combination.
Thank you for being awesome.
Damn you Chimborazo. Damn you.
You played me, you made me want you on the daily and yet, you live in NE. How dare you be located at the exact opposite end of Mpls from me.
You're filled with those lovely llapingachos, the perfectly cooked rice with the fried egg on top and, my new passion, that spicy peanut sauce. Oh, be still my my heart. You taunt me by offering happy hour until 7, and even brunch on the weekends. How can a girl resist?
I'll see you tomorrow Chimborazo, you dirty little flirt.
This place is huge!
I received a gift card to Bachman's for Christmas and was expecting to buy a small bouquet of flowers with it, not the case. The Bachman's on Lyndale is gigantic, it's full of adorable home decor, flowers (of course), and even gives tours. The best part of this Bachman's is that Patrick's Bakery is inside of it, you can choose a cute table, grab a pastry and dine among tons of flowers and plants. Lovely! It's almost like getting to eat at the Conservatory!
Like I said, there is a ton of stuff for the home to look at, they have a lot of vintage decor as well as modern. Everything was a bit too pricey for my 23 year old budget and that reflected in the clientele, I was definitely the youngest person there by about 30 years. They did have a large clearance section though so I walked away with an awesome picture frame and this other weird thing to hang on my wall.
I highly suggest heading to breakfast at Bachman's amongst the flowers as long as you don't mind the age gap.
Breakfast at Barrio. Say What?!?!?!?
The rumors are true, Cocina Del Barrio now serves breakfast, and it is goood (yes, triple O good.) It's so nice to find a place in Edina that serves booze during breakfast. I had the mimosa with spanish cava and it was so delightful I decided to order two.
Onto the food. My man ordered the Chorizo and Potato hash with sunnyside up eggs on top. The spice level was perfect with its mix of poblanos and chorizo. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with spicy chipotle hollaindaise. The hollaindaise was so rich and decadent that i found myself scraping the excess sauce with my potatoes so I wouldn't waste a bit of it.
Barrio is a must if you want some spice added to your brunch, just make sure to bring enough money, it's a lot spendier than your average breakfast spot.
Holy crap. Cafeteria has a Bloody Mary Bar. How did it take me this long to find out?!?! I am a woman obsessed with all that is bloody marys and I am ashamed of myself.
I went to Cafeteria around 10 am on Sunday and it was dead! The man and I got a prime spot at the bar and I quickly took advantage of the bloody bar. It had about 6 different types of mixers including my fave, plain old clamato, a bevy of hot sauces, cheeses, salami and most importantly a ton of horseradish. Hell yes Cafeteria.
For my breakfast I ordered the Eggs Benedict and was supremely disappointed. For $13 I was expecting a classier version of eggs benedict, but I got poached eggs sliding off the english muffin and a far too large portion of flavorless hollandaise. It was just not good. My breakfast did come with a side of skillet potatoes that were its one saving grace. On the other hand my boyfriend loved the biscuits and gravy he ordered, maybe they just don't know how to make eggs benedict.
Our service was very good and I cannot write too poorly about anywhere that has such a well stocked bloody bar, but be warned about the eggs benedict.
Best day ever. My parents came to visit today for a walk around Harriet followed by lunch at Wise Acre.
First off, the decor, holy crap the ferns surrounding the room are adorable and so perfect considering the restaurant is right across from Tangletown. I got The Great Scott, a meatloaf sandwich with a side of carrot mashed potatoes and their A-mazing balsamic ketchup, It was so good. My parents had The Brie and Bacon Burger which came with fries and this superb wild rice slaw. There was not a morsel left on anyone's plates. We got the Sundae of the Day which was decadent with its thick, chocolatey brownie and the salted caramel sauce on top.
Wise Acre only serves beer and wine so I could not get my signature Bloody but they made up for it with their stellar beer list chocked full of local brews.
Wise Acre is so worth a try and is one of the best brunch options in Minneapolis.
We chose this hotel for our San Francisco vacation solely on the fact that it served a brunch buffet every morning but were blown away by the service, decor, location and patio at the Petite Auberge.
The rooms are spacious and adorably decorated-think french country side-with antique furniture and even robes! The breakfast buffet was stocked with fresh fruit everyday including great watermelon and kiwi and my boyfriend loved the quiche! We attended the Happy Hour one night and loved the spread stocked with cheese, crudites and mini pecan pies! We took our snacks and wine outside on the patio and had the best time.
We loved our stay!
Oh Stanley, you're adorable.
I love so many things about you, your big 'ol urinals from your Stacio's days (yes, I looked at them), the old fashioned radiators that hold up your tables, your friendly staff, your hash browns, your bacon, oh and of course your bloodies.
Can't wait until your food truck opens so I can follow you around Mpls.
Say What? Psycho Suzi's has brunch?!?!? Why yes, yes it does, oh, and it's AWESOME.
I can't picture a better morning than getting a prime spot on the patio, overlooking the river, building your custom bloody from the bloody bar and ordering a ton of food with your friends. I lived this dream last Sunday when the patio was surprisingly dead, we had no problem scoring a choice spot and soaking up the hot sun. Their bloody bar is stocked with a ton of hot sauces I had never heard of, meats, cheeses and a ton of horseradish. My friends and I split the cheese curds, barracuda buffalo wings and the mercury breakfast pizza. Everything was so good (especially the wings) there wasn't a crumb left on the plate.
Suzi's will now be one of the stops in my regular brunch rotation.
Hella good breakfast.
This place is an awesome old school diner in a strip mall. You can choose to sit in a private table or pull up a stool at the bar and watch the cooks brown your browns.
My man and I sidled up to the bar one hung over morning and had the best breakfast. The coffee was fresh and piping hot and our mugs were in a constant state of full. A lot of the meals here have an italian flair to them with the spice level and such.
I ordered the Italian Eggs which was basically eggs benedict with italian sausage and a lot of italian flavor in the hollandaise. It was spicy and the hollandaise was one of the best I have ever had. The eggs were also poached to perfection. My fiance got biscuits and gravy (which he always orders) and raved about them.
You go Crystal Cafe.
I guess I had higher hopes.
Brunch was extremely overpriced. I ordered the savory waffle which came with ham, apples and honey. It was lovely, the flavors were spot on. It was very hard to justify spending $14.00 on it though. I also had two tiny mimosas which were $8 a piece. Ouch.
I don't know, I want to try The Gray House for dinner but don't think I'll be back for brunch.
