Birchwood Cafe

This weekend I had brunch at Birchwood Cafe in Minneapolis, whose slogan is "Good Real Food." Fantastic Real Food would be a better description of my meal: an asparagus, fontina, and quinoa waffle, topped with treats like hazelnut honey butter and rhubarb.

Birchwood features many local and organic ingredients. I was also excited to find that they sell seed packets to support Northfield's Grow a Farmer Fund! A quote on their wall struck me as an apt reflection of what I've learned from Food Truth: "Innumerable measures bring us this food; we should know how it comes to us"- Zen Meal Prayer.
