We ate here twice on a recent business trip to Minnesota. The first time with a local friend who took us for dinner. Our waiter was delightfully charming & attentive. We shared the pickle plate appetizer and ate every pickled bit! We all had the Tour de France Turkey Burger and all enjoyed it. (mine on GF bread, baked in-house;... More

I've eaten there a couple of times since the expansion. It has the same great food. We are never disappointed. It's a very lively space and yes it's noisy at times,like a bistro. It's a very bicycle friendly place. Today we saw a number of people including families gathering in the back room to watch the Tour de France on... More

Birchwood Cafe is a charming little stop in the middle of a Minneapolis neighborhood. We went for a Sunday brunch and were surprised to find a short line and no wait for a table. There is a limited menu, but everything on there was mouth watering. We all shared the savory waffle, the veggie scramble and the quiche lorraine all... More

Great fresh food and there's not a better black bean quinoa burger around that I know of. Best lemonade ever. Prices are in line for fresh and local. You order and pay at the counter and they bring your food to the table, coffee house style. The newly renovated space was disappointing. The line for ordering food is in the... More

The newly renovated Birchwood Café is fabulous! Great space and right on the Nice Ride (bike Share) line, so ride a bike! Tasty omelet with fresh fiddleheads and ramps (ramps are like an onion).

I used to go here with my grandmother to by eggs and milk when I was a child, at the birchwood dairy. Nice to see the place has been brought back. I thought the food was very good and reasonably priced. Everyone in our group liked their food. They have things like sweet pea pancakes, pancakes with sweet peas in... More

Hey I'll admit the food can be tasty, well it should for the price that is charged. There's nothing like some punk full of tattoos giving you loads of attitude -- no charge for that. The owner also got a huge kick-starter funding after being in business for more than ten years. Really ?? Doesn't that seem pretty odd. Pay... More

This is not the first time visiting the cafe, but this was the first time we went to the Birchwood Cafe since they enlarged its seating capacity and upgraded its kitchen. The food is exceptional and made from locally owned/operated establishments/farms. I had the beef burger with housemade ketchup & mustard, cheddar, pickled onion, lettuce, buttermilk bun. The beef was... More

The food here is great. Doesn't matter what you get. Eclectic, out of the way place with the best desserts and coconut cream pie around. Locally grown ingredients. Never had anything here that wasn't fabulous. My favorite restaurant in Minneapolis
