Grab your scarves and mittens and come see where Minnesota nice meets Minnesota snow & ice!
From craft beers to craft cocktails, Minnesota’s Sweet Spot has it all. Enjoy a whole weekend of delicious drinks.
Begin your trip to Minnesota’s Sweet Spot at the quintessential brunch restaurant in Golden Valley, the Good Day Café. Start your day with a mimosa – they have seven unique offerings, including the GDC Grand Mimosa made with Grand Marnier or the Man-Mosa spiked with Fireball whiskey! The Café offers a wide variety of omelets, pancakes, waffles, crepes, French toast, and baked goods. Their oversized apple souffle pancake, made with Granny Smith apples smothered in a cinnamon sugar glaze, was even featured on the Food Network show “Best. Breakfast. Ever.”
Ease your way into the day with brunch on the four-season “paw”tio at The Block Food + Drink. Start your morning with a signature bloody mary. They have three different levels of bloodiness: Mary Mary Quite Contrary for bloody mary newbies, the Block Bloody made with their special homemade mix, and the Dragon Mary, crafted with habanero infused vodka and Sriracha for those who aren’t afraid of a little spice. Or choose one of their six mimosas. Make sure you try their “pacos” – mini pancakes stuffed with cheesy scrambled eggs, hash browns and bacon, served with spicy pepper jam and maple syrup. They also serve vegan entrées.
Kick off your Saturday evening with dinner at Lat14 Asian Eatery, known for its critically acclaimed fine dining featuring small, shareable plates featuring the cuisine of Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, and their neighboring countries. A full bar features over 40 different types of scotch, bourbon and rye, an Irish whisky and five Japanese whiskies. Try them neat or in a cocktail.
Start your last day in Minnesota’s Sweet Spot with a stop at St. Louis Park’s favorite local hangout, Bunny’s Bar & Grill. In business for over 80 years, you’ll often find lines out the door at this popular breakfast spot. Order one of their signature skillet scrambles – scrambled eggs and American fries topped with melted Monterey jack-cheddar cheese, bacon and more – or try the cinnamon fritter French. Be sure to try a Bunny Mary, their take on a bloody mary served with a Kramarczuk’s spicy beef stick and a snit of Coors Light.
