Conveniently located at the West End, The Loop offers classic American brunch options. Choose from buttermilk pancakes served with fresh berries, bacon & eggs, omelets, breakfast burritos and several vegetarian options. Their signature breakfast sandwich features house-made breakfast sausage and a sweet kick of tabasco honey. Be sure to add an order of their house-made mini cinnamon rolls – they’re perfect for sharing!
Feeling hungry? Grab a sandwich with onion rings or fries from Brookview’s Three One Six Bar + Grill. They serve American classics and craft brews, plus they have an outdoor firepit for chasing away the winter chill.
Take a trip to “Skunk Hollow” – St. Louis Park’s unofficial distillery district. Stop in at Dampfwerk Distillery for a tour and tasting. This family-owned distillery specializes in German-style fruit brandies and liqueurs, as well as gin and aquavit. Next, stroll across the parking lot to Copperwing Distillery where you can sample their award-winning Vodskey, a bourbon mash distilled like vodka, and FRESAS, their strawberry gin.
Start your final morning in town at a neighborhood institution – Bunny’s Bar & Grill. It’s a popular weekend breakfast spot that often has lines out the door. Order one of their signature skillet scrambles – scrambled eggs and American fries topped with melted Monterey jack-cheddar cheese, bacon and more. The biscuits and sausage gravy and cinnamon fritter French toast are also popular choices. Plus, enjoy a complimentary Bloody Mary, screwdriver or juice.
