    No matter the season, get the savory waffle: it inevitably incorporates something tasty in the batter (like asparagus or sweet corn) and comes topped with syrup, infused butter, compote, and lardons. Read more

    In the summer, take your pizzas, soups, sandwiches, and such out to one of the picnic tables and meditate on the blooming boulevard gardens all through the quiet neighborhood. Read more

    I currently work here and I just have to say that this is some of the best food I've ever had. I can't wait for the new menu to come out soon as the season changes so I get to try more of it

    The waffle is epic. Order it. It's an asparagus, parmesan and quinoa waffle, topped with rhubarb jalapeno marmalade, lemon pepita butter and bacon lardoons. LARDOONS I SAY.

    Fast, friendly, bright, and active a meal with the kids at Birchwood bears more than a passing resemblance to the wonder that is childhood. Food is ordered via counter service for the antsy spirits.

    Great farm to table breakfast walking distance to the Mississippi River. Great vegetarian and vegan options!

    The sophisticated Mexi Cocoa is a hit! Made with cayenne and allspice for depth and heat but finished with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream to temper it.This a sweet treat for after dinner!

    One of the best post-holiday eating! you know you'll always be getting food that is hormone-free, humanely raised, as local and sustainable as possible, and above all, very tasty.

    The recent re-model of the dining room is beautiful, except for the freaky wolf paintings, which will prolly be sold before next time we go. I particularly enjoyed the Rhubarb Ginger soda.

    Voted Best Farm-to-Table Restaurant by City Pages in 2012! Both owner & chef are committed to local, sustainable agriculture. This commitment is a perfect example of a virtuous and delicious business

    Awesome veggie cafe with lots of healthy options. Line gets long but use your time to explore the menu and take in the fun environment.

    The savory waffle is delish! Perfect combo of savory and sweet. It gets a little crowded, but it's cozy.

    The Tomato Corn Chowder was delicious. Fantastic bread as well. Can't wait to go back and try the Veggie Hand Pie!

    Quinoa and waffle are not two words that typically rub shoulders, but here the grain joins forces with asparagus slivers and Italian cheese to give this breakfast standby a savory complexity.

    If you are ever in Minneapolis this is a must stop! All local grown food, and delicious. Unless you're veggie get something with bacon on it if you can.

    Try the roast beef omelet! I'm not a huge omelet fan, but theirs made me a believer.

    Voted top 15 places to eat with kids! The food is fresh, irreverent, and ordered via counter service -- an added bonus, since kids are not known for their patience.

    Great brunch, but they are incredibly stingy when it comes to refilling your coffee because they don't want you to linger.

    Savory waffle is wonderful, could use a little more powdered sugar though. Extra is free.

    Seward Laundromat is across the street. Pick up a bit and get your clothes clean. Beats the heck out of candy bars from the vending machine!

    This place has almost NO vegan options, everything has bacon or cheese in it. Its not a healthy food place its just hella trendy and overpriced. 16$ for rice and beans? Not too happy.
