This is their french toast. So good. I usually go to Finish Bistro to grab a coffee and occasionally a pastry (or two). They have lots of seating- outdoor seating in the summer. And they have weekly events as well.
I’m going to be real with you guys right now and say that this photo does NOT do this food any justice. Colossal home makes ALL of their food. Every time I bring a friend here, they rave about it for hours after. It’s truly amazing. The lines get super long, but it is worth it.
Original Pancake House
I eat way too much every time I come here. These are the chocolate chip pancakes that I get every time I go. I’ve also gotten their eggs benedict which I would highly recommend. This place gets extremely busy, so I would suggest that you call ahead.
This place is actually so cute. They have the prettiest pastries and the whole place is just aesthetically pleasing. It would be a cute place for a photoshoot. I thin they also have a private room you can use for an event. Their food is great. They have fun coffee flavors as well.
OMG. That box on the left has honey cheese curds. Get. Them. They are the perfect cheese curd. Inside Foxy is cute, very small, but they have some fun art in there.
Spitz (my absolute favorite)
My favorite food is definitely mediterranean and this place, let me tell you, just amazing. I love everything I have ever gotten there. I always get the waffle fries because they come with this tasty chipotle sauce. They also have really good sangria. Did I mention that they have games?
Costa Blanca in NE
These are tapas! We came here hungry as cows and ordered like 6 dishes. I’ll be honest, I don’t remember the names of what we got but man it was good. A little pricey, but it was a very good experience.
I love Barrio. They have multiple locations- in St. Paul and Minneapolis. If you sit outside at the one in downtown Minneapolis, make sure you sit at Barrio’s section. The restaurant next door has very similar seating and my friend and I sat and waited at the wrong restaurant for 30 minutes before realizing we weren’t actually sitting at Barrio…oops.
The Handsome Hog
This was my first chicken and waffle experience and to tell you the truth.. I still dream about it. I have never tasted anything so good in my life. Literally life changing. Wow.
You guys.. I swear this food is mouth watering. 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND.
Thanks for reading + happy eating 🙂
The Loop, CA
This place is so much fun. What’s better than churros and ice cream? Churros in ice cream. They have so many options to choose from and omg I wish they had these in Minnesota.
Waffle Bar, MN
I need this right now. Waffles and ice cream are another iconic combination. This place is super fun and they have a wall where you can post instagram photos. They also have a cotton candy machine? Pretty cool.
Minnesota Nicecream, MN
I waited in line for this ice cream for like 45 minutes. Luckily, there was a pug in a backpack in front of me which made it more enjoyable. The ice cream looks better than it tastes, but would definitely get it again.
So, have you been to any of these places?
If not, treat yo-self!
This is their red chicken curry. It is phenomenal. So creamy and comes with so much that I always leave with left overs! It’s a win win. They have great deals and it’s a fun little place.
This is my all time favorite place to go. My go-to. The staff there is unreal. They are incredibly friendly and welcoming and not to mention they make amazing and authentic food. This picture is of their Shawarma Platter. I always get this (and the falafels on occasion)
You see that thing with a knife sticking in it? That is ricotta cheese that will change your life. I literally would eat that whole thing no questions asked. That is their cheese board and underneath are their wet chips (I think that’s that they’re called) which are great. They taste like buffalo wings. Alma is cute and the servers are very attentive. It’s also a good place to study.
