Delicious Brunch in Minneapolis!

My wife and I came here this morning, after having not been in several years. The food was delicious! My wife had the savory waffle which she liked very much, and I had the Birchwood Benedict which was very good. Everything is very well priced, and while it is a busy restaurant, things move along... read more

We waited 18 minutes in line. Then we waited another 10 to put in our order because a table wasn't ready. And then after all that waiting... I was told the fries that WERE LISTED ON THE MENU are never sold during brunch. Even though they are on the brunch menu. Not worth it. But the savory pancake is always... More

Order your healthy meal, at the front counter and it gets delivered to your table. Friendly wait staff and lots of options for vegans, gluten-free & none of the above! Ambiance is nothing fancy but all the food was tasty with good-sized portions.

As an 'out of towner' we asked for a recommendation of where to go for a delicious brunch with limited waiting time on a Sunday. We were NOT disappointed in any way by the food, location, service, ambience, service. We loved the 'local' offerings, portions were generous enough to take 1/2 their eggs benedict home for another meal.

Birchwood is THE place to go for breakfast, or really any meal. The savory waffle is delish and the wild rice pancakes are outstanding!

This place is super cute! I visited for lunch with a friend. They are very busy during lunch, seating is limited! The menu has a variety and is very fresh and very good.

Enjoyed a yummy breakfast on a Saturday morning. Arrived around 10 am and got a table easily. (Not so an hour later!) Had the house Eggs Benedict that included cabbage. Believe it or not, it was an awesome combo with the salty ham and piri-piri (sp?) hollandaise sauce. Also tried the pumpkin seed/cranberry/Gruyere waffle: tasty with lots going on. The... More

This is an order at the counter cafe. I had the soup and deli combo - a cup of maple squash soup and a cup of salad from the deli case, I had sweet potato bacon salad served with a small wedge of bread. Everything was very tasty. This combo was $8 which I thought was very reasonable. My niece... More

Everything about Birchwood Cafe is excellent! I brought a party of 12 to the restaurant and there was not a negative comment. Perhaps the only negative was that the portions were large and that they would have to find a cold place to store the leftovers so they would not spoil on ride home.

Incredible!! We had a party of seven and every single dish we ordered was perfection! We tried the waffle, mushroom pasta, ham pizza, fish bisque, a Rosemary lemonade, chocolate cake with a red wine and chocolate frosting, chocolate walnut bar, a stone berry pie, and every single bite of it all was a slice of Heaven! We were so full... More
