City Pages' Description

An entire book could be devoted to the wonders and marvels of French Meadow. Quickly, let us say that Lynn Gordon opened this foremother of all things organic in the Twin Cities as an all-organic, yeast-free bakery in 1985. Eventually she added a café with an emphasis on counter-service cooked-to-order delights like buoyant pancakes, chock-full-of-treats quiches, and legendarily satisfying soups (vegan, vegetarian, and rib-sticking-with-meat varieties). Then in 2001, dinner table-service debuted. Now the busy building is all things to all people: One of the best bakeries in the country, one of the best places to get a pancake on a Thursday morning, one of the best neighborhood restaurants for dinner--guess it just shows that good karma really is a cosmic force.

    The vegan breakfast with hemp toast is quite good paired with a pint of Alaskan IPA.
