Hope Breakfast Bar has been on my list for years so I was very excited when it was suggested as the location for our girls brunch.Continue reading
Activites and places happening in St. Paul, Minnesota
Apostle Supper Club | Saint Paul, MNStandard
It felt kismet that minutes after I had read an article about the opening of Apostle Supper Club in Saint Paul a friend suggested we meet there for dinner.Continue reading
Minnesota State Fair Foods 2022 | Saint Paul, MNStandard
The Minnesota State Fair is my favorite food event of the year! Normally I go multiple times, but with my wedding in a couple months we were forced to try to jam pack everything into one power 4 hour visit this year, which meant that I had to forgo a few normal fair food staples to make room for more new foods.
Below are all the foods we had this year plus the new items from Nordic Waffles that we were able to try at a State Fair preview event the night before it opened.
W.A. Frost and Co. | St. Paul, MNStandard
I’ve tried and failed in past summers to get onto W.A. Frost and Company‘s patio and I was not going to make that same mistake this year. Their patio is continuously listed on the top patios of the Twin Cities and it is clear why!Continue reading
Handsome Hog | St. Paul, MNStandard
We are having the best summer finally experiencing restaurants we’ve been talking about going to for what feels like ever. After two years of pandemic takeout and sticking to the same places (some would say sticking to the rivers and the lakes that we’re used to #IYKYK) it just feels like we’re finally getting back to experiencing life.
I’m embarrassed to say that Handsome Hog has been on my list since it was in its first location so it’s taken me damn near a decade to get there 🤦♀️. I’m happy to report, that brunch was everything I’ve been dreaming it would be, but jokes on me, because now Handsome Hog is back on the list for dinner.Continue reading
Saint Paul Brewing | St. Paul, MinnesotaStandard
Saint Paul Brewing is my absolute favorite patio. I know it sounds made up or ridiculous, but the first time we went there last year, I felt a rush of pure joy that has only happened to me a handful of other times like when I heard my favorite song performed by my favorite band live, when I was about to jump out of a plane with a human strapped onto my back, and when we secured our wedding venue and it hit me that we were actually getting married.
Don’t get me wrong, the beer is really good, too haha, but without a doubt, my obsession with this brewery revolves around the joy and wonder their patio gives me.
Tongue in Cheek | St. Paul, MNStandard
Hello friends! It’s been a really long time and to catch you up to speed, I haven’t been writing full on blogs about my food adventures, but I have been featuring them on my Instagram and my Facebook page, so if you’re wondering where I’ve been or looking for more recent restaurants, you can still find great new locations! I’ve recently changed jobs and have had a few life changes, so the itch to get back to posting on my blog has been growing and after we went to brunch at Tongue in Cheek, it didn’t feel right not to sit down and give it the true homage that it deserved; 250 words 😂
A friend of mine, who is even more obsessed with good food than I am, has been raving about Tongue in Cheek for years, specifically their brunch. So when my fiance and I (that’s one of those life changes I referred to 😂) decided to pre-celebrate our birthdays with brunch it was a no brainer for me to scoop up a reservation. It beyond lived up to the hype and I can’t wait to go back for dinner!Continue reading
5-8 Tavern and Grill | Maplewood, MNStandard
Last week it was national cheese curd day, which is not a day I was prepared to miss.
You can see proof of my cheese curd obsession here.
I was super confused when I asked boyfriend where there were good cheese curds to try close to us in the East Metro and he suggested we go to 5-8 Tavern and Grill…Yes, it’s official, I was [last Thursday] years old when I discovered that 5-8 had more than just the Minneapolis location… (they actually have FOUR locations 🤦 ).
**Spoiler Alert: the cheese curds were amazing and I will definitely be visiting the 5-8 Maplewood location again!
Wild Boar Bar and Grill | Oakdale, MinnesotaStandard
I’ve been trying (and failing quite a bit) this summer to eat low carb so when I determine it’s a cheat meal there is really only one thing I crave: a sandwich.
While trying to find a new place to go near Woodbury that had a club sandwich on the menu boyfriend found Wild Boar Bar & Grill. Funnily enough, we didn’t realize until we were almost there that this happened to be the same place we had passed signs for multiple times already thanks to the current 494/94 ramp detours and had kept commenting that we needed to come back to try it haha.
