Neighborhood cafe

The Birchwood Cafe changes its menus daily and almost always includes vegan or veganizable entrees. They also have occasional vegan desserts.

The use organic ingredients where possible, and the atmosphere is casual.

The restaurant is located in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis.

Birchwood Cafe has some pretty decent nosh, but the atmosphere will choke the life out of you. Privileged yuppies seem to take the joy out of everything, and they are always in ample supply at this cafe. The menu seems to take itself way too seriously and while the food here is commendable, there aren't too many vegan options. Given the upscale pricing, it was surprising that the experience of dining here felt more like a greasy spoon.

Birchwood offers a lot of yummy vegetarian options. I like that they have creative veg items like sandwiches with multiple spreads and a flavorful variety of veggies or salads with fruits and in season vegetables. They do have great vegan bread and the atmosphere is colorful and charming.
They often do not have multiple vegan options, which is a bummer. Known for their desserts and baked items, I am especially dissapointed that the seldom have more than a vegan crisp, which is not as creative or varied as the other non-vegan options.
I really enjoy this place overall.
