Delicious, affordable Mexican food, Dos XX's on tap, prompt fast service. We like the Jalisco entree, big enough to bring some home for leftovers!

Fresh pastries and coffee drinks! Donuts, cookies, incredible cakes... also available is a large menu of non-breakfast goodies, sometimes you crave Swedish Meatballs with Lingonberries! This spot is right up the road (walk, bike, drive) + one of our favorites to grab some morning items and take them on the paddleboat. Or enjoy a lazy morning with delicious goods and enjoy the slow pace of life by the lake.

Great pizza (deep-dish and non), variety of beers on tap, newly remodeled outdoor area with cover from the sun. The Diablo wings are second-to-none and they have this Pescara option for the pizza crust -- SO GOOD.

Favorite 'secret spot' for great food. Unassuming outside, usually need reservations unless you get there when the door opens and snag a spot at the bar. LOVE the 'Black and Blue'. We go for special events and always enjoy what we have.

During the week is the best time to go, they do not take resies, so plan accordingly! Eat some of their baked goods while you wait. Everything I've eaten here has been worth talking about. Plan an afternoon and go walk around Lake Nokomis after!

Here's the deal, I'm putting this in here because the scale of this place is insane - you can spend a few hours getting lost looking at interior decorating ideas, snapping pictures of layouts & the like -- we enjoy going here to get new ideas about spaces! They have a super affordable, delicious cafe as well - filled with Swedish (& non) options. Definitely a great rainy-day spot!
