This is not for the faint of heart. This amazing, and very dense, bread is made from their own homemade bison sausage, toasted walnuts, black currants, black coffee and spices. I topped mine here with their incredible blackberry-ginger jam and peanut butter and I couldn't even wait till after I had taken a picture to try my first bite. The peanut butter is a sweet, cinnamony taste that is still slightly crunchy from the little bits of peanut butter. The bread is sweet, salty, and slightly bitter all at the same time. The combination is truly one of a kind.
I know I just said order the peanut butter first, but I take it back. This is what you should order first:
I present the bellini. It is in the mimosa family, but on the rich, home on the French riviera side. It is sparkling wine and their homemade peach puree. Delicious! (And strong...)
Okay, onto the big leagues. My wonderful friend, and fellow food lover, Cathy and I have a new system. We both order things we want to try and then split both. The fruit of this genius plan was....... Lemon-Ricotta Hotcakes and Bison Benedict! I would recommend them both STRONGLY. The hotcakes come with a warning to try them before adding maple syrup. They are so perfectly sweet on their own, I never even added syrup. Made with lemon zest and whole milk ricotta, they don't need any help. The bison benedict was served with their jalapeno hollandaise sauce and their famous rosti potatos. They are more like the “ultimate” hash browns...freshly-grated Idaho potatoes mixed with Applewood-cured bacon pieces, fresh scallions, minced garlic, sweet onions and fresh parsley, then sauteed in sweet cream butter. If you are ever in Minneapolis, this place is a must go to!
