Natural foods deli and holistic health-concious store

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, General Store

Now serving brunch on weekends, from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Options include a gluten-free vegan waffle, tofu scramble and ranchero burrito with tofu. Also featuring half-price, half-size happy hours on many menu items.

Tao has been open since 1968, serving healthy food and selling natural health supplements and more. The front of this tiny natural foods store contains a deli whereat you can get smoothies, soups, sandwiches and a number of other lunch type items.

Beyond the deli, the store goes on to contain health-conscious items like vitamins, homeopathic and holistic goods, incense, chakra oils, &c. And atop a spiral staircase is a mezzanine filled with books on various health and holistic related activities.

I had the home made black bean burger with fresh veggies and kale salad (toasted sesame oil). Yummy with Yerba Mate tea. Great food, service and atmosphere. I'd always just shopped there, the food is most excellent too!

Tao foods is literally my favorite place to eat in the Twin Cities. Every time I visit Tao Foods, I tell myself that I will order something other than the avocado rice plate with a side of black beans, but I love it so much that I order it every single time. It's a little crazy, since I make a version of this at home, but the brown rice is always perfect, the black beans are always perfect, and the sliced avocado, tomato, and red onions are always perfect.
