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

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
Hazelwood Food and Drink | Woodbury, MNStandard
Ever since realizing a new restaurant was coming to the vacant space over by Woodbury Lakes I’ve been eagerly awaiting it’s opening. Hazelwood Food & Drink couldn’t be more different than the previous venue, which is a great thing. They completely revamped the interior and while it is a little more upscale in pricing for Woodbury the quality definitely makes it worth it.Continue reading
LoLo American Kitchen and Craft Bar | Stillwater, MNStandard
I went to post a photo of our most recent visit to LoLo American Kitchen and Craft Bar in Stillwater, Minnesota and realized, that although they are probably my most recommended spot, I’ve never written a Hipster Hack about them which felt very wrong, so here we are with a recap of some of our favorite dishes!Continue reading
Devil’s Advocate | Stillwater, MNStandard
After months of driving past it and saying “oh shit, we keep forgetting about that place,” we finally made it to Devil’s Advocate in Stillwater for a very quick dinner before my nephew’s soccer game.Continue reading
Lolito Cantina | Stillwater, MN – 2022 Hipster HackStandard
I’ve already written one Hipster Hack back in 2020 for Lolito Cantina, but that was two years ago and it’s still one of our favorite places so it definitely deserved an update!Continue reading
The Wild Hare | Stillwater, MNStandard
We spent an impromptu afternoon/evening in downtown Stillwater, Minnesota last Sunday, first meeting Fiance’s family at Forge & Foundry Distillery (Hipster Hack coming soon) and then we lucked out snagging a spot on the patio at The Wild Hare for dinner with friends, because with it being Labor Day weekend, downtown Stillwater was packed and the waits we were being quoted elsewhere were an hour.
We had never been before so it was also great to be able to check another place off the list.Continue reading
Little Italy | Hudson, WIStandard
Little Italy is the newest Italian restaurant in Hudson, WI and my sister, Andrea, is the Operations Manager there. I’m putting that first to be fully transparent, but if anyone knows our family, they would also know if we don’t agree with something or think it sucks we’re the first to tell one another haha, so I assure you that I am only posting this because the food is legitimately really good and I was not asked to.
It actually even worked out perfectly so I was able to go to dinner while Andrea was working and with our other sister, Ashley! There’s nothing better than stolen sister time!Continue reading
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
