Amazing Grace Bakery & Cafe in Duluth, Minnesota

The food i had, hashbrowns with veggies and tofu, was excellent! Also, the atmosphere is great and the staff, the couple of times that I've been there, have been really helpful and friendly. Next time I'm in Duluth again, I'll definitely stop in and grab a bite to eat.

They had a good number of tasty options on the menu. I had a tempeh sandwich that I really enjoyed. Also, a large portion of their food is sourced locally which is something I wholeheartedly support.

On top of all that, they support great organizations and their restaurant interior was built from recycled materials.

It's worthwhile to check it out and support what they're doing with this joint.

Awesome Co-op. They have tons of great organic veggies and fruits, as well as a great bulk foods section where you can pick up granola, pasta, and almost anything else you'd want in bulk. It's a large co-op where you can pick up everything you need to keep yerself fed.

Not to be missed!

First off, the Good Food Store co-op is great. They have a HUGE bulk foods section, where you can get just about anything you'd want. They have produce, bread, and all kinds of packaged foods as well.

The only downside is that their produce section is quite small and could use some expanding and care.

Now, as for the awesome deli...HELL YEAH!! Their sandwiches are great and they have a bunch of different options and ways you can customize your meal. Finally, they have a number of quality smoothies to choose from...I've liked all of the ones I've tried so far.

This place ain't bad, not amazing, but none too shabby... I like the veggie burger and the burrito is also tasty.

And I like the atmosphere...they have a good juke box that's worth checking out. They have a nice tea selection too. So, if you want atmosphere, and at least some good food options, give it a try....

Great atmosphere, interesting decor/art on the walls. They offer a selection of baked goods from hard times, and they have a couple of sandwiches too. I wish they had more sandwich options, but alas...

I love that they source local organic ingredients, compost their food, and use recycled paper products. This place is really forward looking and ethical when in it comes to certain things.

They have soups, entrees, and they can make excellent sandwiches too.

The Donut Cooperative in Twin Cities, Minnesota

WOW!! The donuts at this place are to die for (they have vegan and non-vegan)! You must check it out... There really aren't many places that offer such tasty handmade vegan donuts, and especially not ones made with whole organic ingredients locally sourced. I really liked the variety of interesting flavors offered and the donuts themselves were crunchy and soft.

My only complaint would be that the small size of the space meant they had somewhat limited seating options...but I only had to wait a minute for seats to open up, so it wasn't that bad really.

Great atmosphere, nice people, good coffee and donuts from heaven. I will definitely be going here any time I'm jonezing for a donut fix!

Great food and large portions. You definitely get your money's worth at this place. They have excellent options for everyone in your posse and they bring fresh green tea out with every meal.

Local. Organic. Sustainable. Tremendous. They even deliver pizza in electric cars while dressed up in super hero duds. What more can I say? Do or die!

Hard Times Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Nov 14 11

rating star

Don't expect gourmet cuisine. That's not what Hard Times is about. It's a greasy spoon kinda place. And damn do they serve it up right! I highly recommend the falafel platter or a tasty burrito. Hard Times is also great because it's collectively run, so you know you're supporting the workers directly rather than supporting some kind of hierarchical system in which the boss at the top lives large while the workers at the bottom scrape by.

You don't find many places like this... check it out!

BEST HUMMUS, BEST FALAFEL, hands down!!

Well, I prefer their sister restaurant, the Jasmine Deli, but I have to say, this place has really good food too. It's a bit more expensive than the Jasmine deli, but I got my money's worth and even had to bring some home to finish later. Also, the family that owns the place is really nice and very attentive to your needs and questions.

Ultimately, I think the Jasmine Deli cheaper options, especially when it comes to sandwiches...but still, this place is worth checking out for the friendly service and tasty food.

Hell yeah! I love Jasmine deli...late at night when I'm in the mood for some great soup it's just the place. They give you a huge bowl of soup and it tastes great...sometimes I can't even finish the whole thing so I have to take some home with me. I also really love their sandwiches...

Little Tijuana in Twin Cities, Minnesota

I'm not a big fan of this joint. They don't have many healthy options and mostly I'd say the one thing they have going for them is that they're always open.

And the chips w/guacamole are usually worthwhile, but other than that I'd say enter at your own risk.

Good atmosphere with great pastas, sandwiches, and pizzas, something for everyone (omnivores, gluten frees, vegetarians, and vegans alike)!

Trader Joe's in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Aug 28 08

rating star

I'm not a big fan of this place. With the GARGANTUAN selection of Organic Foods Co-ops as well as Independent natural foods stores in the Twin Cities, I see very few reasons to ever shop at Trader Joe's. Their organic options are pitiful, they're extremely wasteful in the way they package foods, the prices aren't that great, and I've even seen organic foods mixed in with conventional foods at their stores...that's not cool.

Avoid this place like the plague.

What can I say...great atmosphere and tasty, greasy diner food. I really dig their homemade spicy bean burger, mmmm. And they've got the best fries in town. If yer lookin for a greasy spoon joint then this is it.

Black Bear has phenomenal bread and a great weekend vegetarian brunch! It's also a worker owned and operated collective so be sure to drop by and lend them your support! The handmade old world style bagels are also not to be missed.
