A Toast to Bread

A Facebook follower posted this on January 15 2014 and never got a reply-

I was told at my regular grocery store that ATtB has closed. Is that true?

ten top MSP breakfasts

I had the chilaquiles breakfast which included two perfectly cooked eggs, a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, a bowl of fresh fruit (pineapple that day), and coffee, all for just under $10. Very reasonable.

Additionally, the owners are very pleasant and the dining area is very clean and tastefully decorated.

Porchetteria

It's a vegetarian option.

"{the verdure}
grilled rapini, fennel-radicchio-currant slaw, roasted red pepper, veggi-cauda emulsion"

It's like ordering a Big Mac without the meat. I have a vegetarian friend who has to do that every once in a while.

They have changed their hours for the summer. Last time I checked this info wasn't on their website or Facebook page, so be warned.

Eagan area eats?

Junior's - good breakfasts and other typical diner food

Ho Ting - Americanized Chinese food but always freshly prepared with fresh veggies and generous portion sizes. One entree is at least two meals. I don't do buffets so have only done take out.

Brianno's - Italian deli; it's takeout only. I like their pasta dishes, salads and bread. Some rave about their pizza but I've never had it.

Andiamo - Nice red sauce Italian place.

El Parian Mexican - The best Mexican in Eagan.

Puffy Cream - donuts and more!

Cupcake/Mason Jar is worth checking out. I've had better luck there at brunch/lunch time than at dinner.

Jensen's Supper Club has not been on my radar but they are in the process of reinventing themselves. They are near the new shopping center so are expanding their hours. Look for J Food (I think that's the new name) sometime in July.

The same people have Jensen's Cafe in Burnsville. I like their breakfasts, just avoid Sunday morning as the wait can be very long.

Satay 2 Go in Apple Valley - This is my favorite place SOTR. Asian street food and more. They have a few tables for eating in too.

I ate at Fiesta Cancun once and won't be back. It falls into the category I call Poo on a Plate but if you like El Loro, this is the place for you.

Thanks. That's helpful info.

Top of mind downtown-
Brasserie Zentral
Bachelor Farmer
Haute Dish

Just across the river from downtown, Kramarczuk's. They recently won a James Beard America's Classics award. How's that for historic?

If Swedish is of interest, FIKA is not too far away and an easy drive. They have a good size lot so parking shouldn't be an issue.

Another bit of info that is sometimes helpful is where you are from. It gives a better understanding of the kinds of cuisine you have access to at home.

You can do better than the Black Forest and a Jucy Lucy. You will miss out on some great dining if that's what you end up eating.

Historic does not necessarily equal quality.

If you can provide the info ChancesR asked about, especially if you have a car, we can help you better.

Minneapolis Marriott City Center, not to miss places walking distance from here?

Saffron would be my go to place. I'd also recommend highly Haute Dish and The Bachelor Farmer.

Excellent dinner at Parka

I imagine the Perfect Burger is off the menu because Erick Harcey has left Stock & Badge.

If you decide to go to Buca, go to their website and join their email club. They frequently issue good coupons.

Travail/The Rookery

I've been to both, The Rookery more than Travail, and that has not always been my experience. It probably varies from night to night.

Travail/The Rookery

"Too loud" is rather hard to judge for someone else.

I've seen lots of woman there that appeared old enough to be someone's grandma.

I can tell you the music is cranked up, there are sing alongs, beer chugging contests and it is rowdy. It can be difficult to have a conversation with others at your table.

Modern ceramic or pottery mug?

I've seen this potter, Paul Eshelman, for years at art fairs and I have also ordered from him online. I like his clean, simple design and his glazes.

I have both of these larger mugs. I use one for tea and one for coffee.

St. Paul birthday dinner for a group?

Before I got to the end of your post, I was thinking Cheeky Monkey. Your instincts are correct; you can do better than Boca Chica.

Sea Change

For pre-theater dining, you need to be seated by 5:45. The server generally asks if you are attending the theater. If they didn't ask, I would certainly mention it. We've never had trouble with the timing even when ordering app, entree and dessert.
