Zumbro Cafe

Zumbro Cafe is my absolute favorite breakfast joint in Minneapolis, MN.   It's located in the Linden Hills neighborhood, close to Lake Harriet.  This little cafe consistently serves up delicious breakfasts.  It's not a greasy-spoon kind of place.  Breakfast here is made from all-natural ingredients that will make you feel energized the rest of the day.  The coffee rocks.  It's strong, and the waiters are liberal with refills.  Courtland is especially fond of their mocha.

  I usually always get the same thing, the Frittata with Portabella Mushrooms, Spinach, and Goat Cheese (I substitute feta or fontina), or the Huevos Zumbrosos.  This time I had the frittata.  It's always good.

Courtland had the Chicken Wild Rice Hash.  He usually always gets the Eggs Benedict, French Toast, or Huevos Zumbrosos.  He claims he'd likely order his standard fare next time.

Jack always gets the Teddybear Pancake.  What kid wouldn't?  We're lucky if he decides to share:)

Go early. . .it gets very busy on weekend mornings.  The tables near the door are chilly to sit at in the winter. I suggest waiting for an alternative table if offered a seat there.   The staff are attentive and efficient: even better when Jack is offered one of their little toy boxes.
