Great Taste in Your Own Backyard: Zumbro

We wanted something special for our breakfast with The Mom-In-Law, so we headed west to The Zumbro Cafe. Located in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis, their website says they have been serving great meals from the heart since 1995 and we agreed. We got there bright and early to beat the rush, and their breakfast was worth it.

I have traced the source of The Husband’s love of Eggs Benedict to The Mom-In-Law, if it’s on the menu they are both sure to order it. I heard no complaints on this one, though they discussed the consistency of this hollandaise sauce at length since it was a thinner approach than they usually see. The verdict? They were both members of The Clean Plate Club, so I’m pretty sure they liked it.

I indulged my love of tofu with the Tofu Scramble. It was really good but I could have eaten a plate of their potatoes and toast for breakfast. Yum!

While Zumbro isn’t exactly in our backyard, we’ll definitely be going back in the future to try more things – I encourage you to do the same!
