Fresh ingredients and delightful seating for lunch

Everything was tasty, and we loved sitting outside on a beautiful day (not too warm). We did not dessert, but they... read more

I LOVE this place. We go there for lunch after yoga every week. Fresh, locally grown food prepared by excellent staff. Always surprising us with the ingredients in the veggie scramble, my favorite!

Great casual café, always busy, reliable breakfast and lunch menus with organic fixings, sandwiches, eggs, etc. Bottomless coffee. Bicyclers venue. Eat outside or in. Often meet adult kids here on weekends, but expect to come early or wait a bit.

Have been here several times before but it was great for mother's day. Very creative farm to table with a very helpful staff and nice atmosphere. I like the savory waffles and the homemade peri-peri sauce. Not the cheapest around but the food is fresh and very good. I lie the Sunday and Tuesday night specials.

It was my first time dining out in over two years. Needless to say, I researched menus online and was quite excited to find such healthy options. We got to the restaurant and our server was terrible (and she was training someone), they were out of the two menu items I was interested in, and we didn't find out about... More

This was a delightful café located on 25th street in Minneapolis. The menu is unique and its chefs create an artistic liberal breakfast that a conservative will enjoy. For me it was more on the expensive side of my typical breakfast establishment. My breakfast was the pork belly steamed bun and it was explained to me it was the meat... More

This place has great options and vegan food. Cute little place in a residential neighborhood. They also serve wine!

Once a dairy (in the 20's) then a neighbourhood grocery store starting in the 40's, the Birchwood Café was transformed into a popular eatery back in 1995. Two decades later it's still the local "go to" spot but it also attracts customers from far and wide looking for great locally-sourced food. For our first visit we tried their renowned savoury...

Popular place for lunch, etc. Walk through line and order, then brought to table. Everything is organic; can't even get Sweet & Low, but they have agave and honey for tea, etc. Had the chicken noodle soup, which was the best I've ever had (including my own). I don't know what the mystery ingredients are, but it was delicious without... More

Dinner at the the newly remodeled and expanded Birchwood was a delight. The food was very fresh tasting; the chef took familiar menu items and added added inventive and flavorful twists . The server was friendly and helpful when trying to discern which dishes would we enjoy most.
