I stopped in late morning for breakfast and it was a busy place! The hostess sat us right away and got us drinks. Our server was a nice gal and provided good service. We had to wait a few minutes for our bill once finished with our meal but as I did it was busy and for as busy as... More

Our lunch was fine. But we might have done just as well with the big new Subway across the street. Most of the menu items were meat focused.

We love the Vinalla Bean and we stop there a lot when we are in Knife River or on our way to GM. Their food is excellent, well prepared and they have specialty coffees too!

We had a lovely, late breakfast here with marvelous lattes and the most unique omelets! Yum! The fresh raspberry jam is made in house and they have Gluten-free bread so I got to have some, too! The servers wait on you like you're the only one in the place and spread cheer along with the jam. We loved it, and... More

We went here for breakfast but when we saw that breakfast was over, we stayed for lunch. Thumbs up, would recommend the pepperoni flatbread and the wild rice soup, both specials. Also the Mac and cheese on the burger was great and one-of-a-kind.

This is a cute little cafe with fun art pieces to look at in the dining room and good coffee. We stopped by on our way through Two Harbors and had breakfast. Good food just waited about 20 minutes for a fried breakfast (which was good but a little ridiculous for eggs). Will go back for coffee to go. Yum!

They do a very good job here. The ingredients are always fresh, and the food has been great every time. Make sure you call ahead if it gets later in the summer season, they don't always stay open later. Remember that Two Harbors is a tourist town, so the prices are a bit more than normal. It is worth it... More

Had a wonderful dinner. Started with a delicious beer cheese soup. My salmon was done perfect. Don't forget to leave room for the Pecan Bread pudding, it's out of this world. Our server was very personable, did a great job. Already looking forward to going back.

This is a great place to get a good cup of Latte! The café itself seems popular and had a line of people waiting to be seated.
