French Meadow Bakery and Cafe – Minneapolis Organic Restaurant
There are so many of you who are from Minnesota who read this blog so, let’s go! This delicious farm-to-table restaurant has options for everyone whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, omnivore or…. dessertatarian 😉 Lynn and Steve, the owners of this Minneapolis organic restaurant center their menus around local, GMO-free and regenerative offerings.
We ordered 11 different plates so, grab a snack and dig into this post.. maybe a napkin too; queue the drool!
Blueberry Corn Pancake (gf/v) – Gluten-free pancake lovers, here you go! This naturally gluten-free pancake is made with GMO-free corn, organic blueberries and drizzled with DANG GOOD Wisconsin maple syrup. Fear not.. it isn’t gummy and you can’t tell it’s gluten-free.
Cornmeal Waffle (gf/v) – Again with the gluten-free options… this perfectly sweet banana walnut waffle is to die for. It’s rich, filling and topped with a toffee syrup. The cornbread tones down the sweetness and the crunchy nuts make for a perfect breakfast.
Huevos Rancheros (gf/veg) – Blackbeans, GMO-free corn tortillas, chipotle sour cream.. what doesn’t sound good here. If you are into a crispy meal, the crunch of the tortillas paired with the runny eggs are your dream. This dish is moist, delicious and another one you can share!
Salmon Eggs Benedict – Check out that yolk.. the eggs they use are extremely orange = good quality! This dish has a fantastic texture, isn’t too fishy and comes with a side salad. If you are an eggs Benedict fan, look no further!
Breakfast Quesadilla (vg) – Ding ding ding.. my personal favorite! I found out after eating it that it wasn’t gluten-free but something about the sprouted sourdough process didn’t get me the gluten bumps I normally get when I eat gluten. It’s served with guacamole, salsa and chipotle sour cream. I highly recommend this crispy, scrambled egg filled quesadilla.
Earth Wings (v/gf) – These vegan wings took the money over the normal wings for me! Imagine an BBQ orange chicken flavor and that’s what you get here. They use a house made sesame BBQ sauce to cover the cauliflower wings. The Earth Wings are crispy on the outside and you won’t even miss the meat!
Chicken Wings (gf) – Talk about outrageous, the delicious house made BBQ sauce they create for these wings is a perfect combo with the savory dipping sauce. They’re a perfect ratio of juicy, tender, crispy and saucy. The sweet honey flavor sends them over the top.
Zen Salad (v/gf) – I’m not a kale girl (my husband gets on me) but they prepare the kale in this salad to perfection. This big green salad is topped with micro-greens, kalamata olives, roasted sunflower seeds, harissa, hummus, radish, guacamole and their house made vinaigrette. It’s colorful, vibrant, earthy and filled with unique flavors.
Spa Salad (v/gf) – I didn’t give this one a try but my guests did and they LOVED the flavor in this sesame cilantro salad. It has blackened organic tofu, seeds, sprouts and is topped with delicious nutrient-rich beets.
Petit Sirloin Steak & Eggs – Let’s be honest.. we ordered this one for the pup. We were chowing down so, I thought he deserved some steak. We weren’t the only ones.. another family did the same thing for their pup! They know how to cook a juicy steak at this Minneapolis organic restaurant. The hash browns are crispy, the eggs over easy and it comes with a side of sourdough bread.
Wild Acres Turkey Burger – Burger people, LET’S GO! My husband can’t stop raving about this juicy burger with a mega flavor punch. His words “It’s cooked to perfection, the fries are perfectly crispy and there’s a good amount of sauce.. dang.” This huge plate could be split with your friend/spouse and you’d both walk away full.
