After a fabulous meal there in the spring I was so sad to see it was permanently closed. Had to find an alternative at the last minute. Ventured to union rooftop. They also had a delish butternut squash ravioli.

What a shame, when we got there today for lunch and it was shattered closed. Apparently, the owner who has created great food since it first opened is getting tired of it. They will still do catering but, of course, that’s not the same. Dinkytown...More

Fourth year having Easter Brunch here—since our twin boys were freshmen at UMinn. There’s a reason we keep coming back! Absolutely delightful atmosphere and everything we’ve ordered from the special menu has been delicious. Thank you for the family memories over the last four years!

Excellent food—definitely make a dinner reservation if you can. My favorite lunch item is the soup of the day! Great service and a great menu. They also have a good catering menu and provide great service for U of M events.

Managed to have lunch here after a couple of failed attempts because it was so busy. What more can I say, great food, great service, good prices. Can totally understand why it gets so busy on occasions. Will go again.

Great food and service. Instead of lining up at restaurants such as McKinney Roe or Spoon and Stable for a table, try this location instead. The staff is way more charming and the meal portions are generous. It is also cheaper.
