Paleos in Lino Lakes

Apparently a lot of people agreed with you. They're closed.

Sunday lunch near Mn Zoo (Apple Valley)

I would describe the pizza as nothing special. If you are looking to feed a group of kids, it would do the job. Thin crust. Good amount of toppings. For point of reference, I prefer Neapolitan style with very simple toppings.

As a category, I think the pizza is the weakest link. I recommend the hot entrees or any of the sandwiches.

Just so you know, there is no seating. It's all takeout.

Good answer! Better than mine.

Valley Tap House comes to mind. http://www.thevalleytaphouse.com/

Other than that, there's every chain you can imagine.

Unfortunately my favorite AV restaurant, Satay 2 Go, is closed on Sundays.

Thanks for the report; glad you enjoyed it.

It's in Burnsville but that is just across the river from 98th & Lyndale.

In Search of Good Seafood Paella in MSP

La Ceiba has Paella Marinera on the menu.

This new bistro is supposedly a revival of sorts of El Meson. I haven't been there yet but I have high hopes.

Anybody been there?

Breakfast near the Renaissance

I concur. I really like Hell's Kitchen for breakfast. My usual is a small porridge and a side of sausage bread slathered with peanut butter. An order is four thick slices so there's enough for sharing.

The Midtown Global Market EBM closed recently.

There are lots of great suggestions for Mexican places posted to your previous request. Did you try any of those?


Colossal Cafe on Grand

Have you noticed the pastry display by the front door? Much of it is uncovered and is easily within reach of customer sneezes, fingers, long hair, and lord knows what else.

I'm amazed they are doing this. I won't be buying any if it.

Buy tickets, you'll be guaranteed.

If that doesn't work for you, be there at 5:00 or be prepared for a long wait. It's worth it though.

Business Etiquette. How cheap is too cheap.

Now that you know all this, why not just order off the menu with no substitutions?

Accept the upcharges or don't. Your choice. He's not gonna change.

Here's the info, but it's undated. There's a number to call for more information.

Colossal Cafe on Grand

It was a wee bit messy. If I recall correctly, I managed to sop up all that lovely runny yolk with the toast and avoided wearing it.

They know how to do toast right. And the tomatoes were surprisingly flavorful for this time of year.

Soft Shell Crabs?

George & the Dragon.

They have them in a BLT sandwich.

Colossal Cafe on Grand

I was there for breakfast midweek. I had the Fried Egg, Fresh Tomato and Feta on Toast which I have had many times at Como. It was just as excellent as at the other location.

The new location has full table service which was also excellent. My coffee cup was never empty.

Cookie scoop?

I got mine from King Arthur Flour. I use the smallest one most.

Sunday brunch

Brunch at Travail, actually The Rookery, is only on Satuday.

Sanctuary or Bachelor Farmer

I have been to both and have had nothing but positive experiences. I believe BF would be a more unique experience and therefore that would be my recommendation. We often go to Sanctuary because it is a good location for pre-Guthrie dining.

I'm not saying this is the case with the above commenters, but some people would NEVER go to or recommend BF because of the father's politics. That exact sentiment has been expressed on this website. So, take negative comments with a grain of salt. I'm just sayin.


I went for lunch at 11ish on a weekday so no waiting. The chicken takes 20 minutes to fry so tables turn rather slowly. By the time I left just after noon, they were nearly at capacity.

I had the southern fried chicken and mac & cheese. Both excellent. The food was served so hot temperature-wise that I had to wait for it to cool. That almost never happens to me. I look forward to trying more of the sides.

The only surprise- $5.00 for regular drip coffee. The beverages were not listed on the menu.

A Ham.


Made it to Terzo today for brunch inside. They have a porchetta focused menu on Saturdays and Sundays from 11-5. I had the bowl which includes polenta and pepperonata. I also added an optional poached egg which I would forgo next time as it just got lost and really wasn't needed. But oh my, it was very good.
