Scratch Cooking

Our farmhouse style of cooking is simple, rustic and seasonal. We source locally and responsibly, partnering with small farmers through The Good Acre and specialty purveyors around the Twin Cities. The intimate Cafe offers a full breakfast and lunch in a casual, counter-service setting and a seperate dinner menu is enjoyed with full table service. Stop in for a bite, enjoy a glass of wine and a cheese board Lakeside, or pick up a delicious meal to bring home to family or friends.


The Deli Case

Our bountiful deli case offers a wide selection of prepared foods including seasonal mains, sides and salads throughout the day. From prepared sandwiches and pizza by the slice to a wide variety of salads and dinner proteins, our deli case offers the fixings for a complete meal to take home or enjoy in the cafe. Please click the “Order Online” tab to view our current deli case offering.


The Bakery

Our bakery is centered around the notion of home—family recipes that delight the senses and fill you with a feeling of warmth and comfort. Our english muffins and buttermilk biscuits are breakfast favorites as are our mini loaves and muffins. Our delicious offering of rustic cookies, bars and cakes are the perfect afternoon treat.



Our Wine & Cocktail Bar offers a curated offering of scratch specialty cocktails and a hand-selected assortment of sparkling, white and red wines along with an ever-changing rose selection. We also feature several favorite craft beers on draft as well as bottled beer, artisan ciders.
