If you are in the Twin Cities and looking for a great place for brunch, or any meal at all, The Birchwood Café-A Minneapolis Sustainable and Vegetarian Friendly Café is sure to have something for everyone!

It was on a summer day a few years ago. My husband Karl and I were driving around Minneapolis on a wild GPS goose chase. The auto shop we were looking for appeared to simply not exist. Confused, we chalked it up to the Google maps app being mistaken. It wouldn’t be the first time.

It was right around lunch time and we needed to make a food pit stop before continuing our search. I typed in, “restaurants near me” in the GPS search bar. We were in a residential area of Minneapolis, so I was expecting to have to drive a several blocks to find a café. But, lo and behold, right around the corner we made an amazing discovery: The Birchwood Café.

Just happening upon this gem was such a treat! I can’t believe that we had never heard of it before; this place was right up our values-alley: organic, locally-sourced, and delicious. It is clear that this place is about more than just food; it is about community. The people behind that café have clear values that shine through their business in all sorts of ways.

We originally found this place before we had transitioned into our mostly plant-based life. We still like to eat there, however. I do wish there were more veg options, but the ones they do have are really, really delicious. If you are a 100% vegan, the options are even slimmer.

It should be noted that, at this time of the year, the Birchwood Café offers a special deal: Thanksgiving dinner! You can order a whole turkey, sides, and pie for pick up the day before Thanksgiving. All you need to do is roast the turkey and prep the stuffing. Pretty much everything else is done for you. We did this a few years ago and it was fantastic. It greatly helped lessen the work in the kitchen on Thanksgiving day. I definitely recommend checking it out!

The café menu changes a little bit with the seasons, which I love. A perennial favorite, the savory waffle, changes each season to feature delicious fresh ingredients. Breakfast is probably our favorite meal to have there, but lunch and dinner are also top notch.
