The Birchwood is a local gem! A creative assortment of unusual and delicious food in a relaxed and artistic setting with outstanding service. "Manhatten-style" seating (you might rub elbows with someone you don't know) and plenty of individual tables combine to give warm, eclectic feel of community. I love having a lazy, late-morning brunch here. If you can't decide what... More

My daughter took us to this little gem of a restaurant for lunch on a Sunday (breakfast was still an option). I loved the dedication to serving real, healthy, organic and non-GMO food. You enter and order at the counter, get a number and items are delivered to your table. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I ordered and... More

Great atmosphere and food. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The chef makes a specialty Eggs Benedict that I ordered which was the best I ever had! Be sure to ask what the special Benedict is before ordering. A must stop place for breakfast with friends and family.

My husband and I stopped in this morning while biking along the Mississippi River; Birchwood is only a few blocks from the Grand Rounds bike path. We sat outside on the small flower-edged patio with a lot of other cyclists. Very comfortable, casual place. My husband ordered eggs with fried potatoes and toast. I had the bowl of yogurt with...

My wife took us here for weekend brunch and it was outstanding! Very healthy, well thought out menu, indoor and outdoor seating, solid coffee, great staff and patrons! The operation is very efficient yet we never felt rushed. Order at the register then you find a seat. Each time we visited everything came in under 5 minutes. Outside seating has... More

I've been going to Birchwood for years mostly for lunch. The food quality has been consistent; it's creative, and good. I enjoy the informal ambience and eating outside is the best. It's a relaxing spot to connect with friends. I appreciate their sustainable values and community engagement. Birchwood is an institution. Interior dining was quite noisy, but it improved a... More

My girls and I visited the Birchwood while in Minneapolis based on a blog review and we could not have been more pleased. The vibe is so hip and cool and the food was AMAZING!!! We could taste the freshness of the ingredients. The Vegetable Scramble had edible flowers and came with their Birdseed toast - both were delicious and... More

The menu is extensively organic, unique foods that aren't your typical breakfast fare. Much "healthier", locally sourced foods. Very good, don't get me wrong, but definitely on the more refined, alternative palate. Baked goods were yummy as well. I had the vegetarian quiche with asparagus and peas and scallions. It was very good. You get potatoes or greens on the... More
