I must say, out of all of the places I’ve been to, the Twin Cities have really led the restaurant movement in farm to table cuisine. It seems that majority of restaurants I have visited are very aware and proactive on where their ingredients come from and the best way to support the local community. One of these restaurants really making a statement is the The Copper Hen in Minneapolis.
Headed by the husband and wife team of Chris and Danielle Bjorling, the dream of a rustic bakery all started will donations through the website, Kickstarter. The couple never settled to be just another bakery in Minneapolis. Not only did the focus greatly on the baked goods, but unlike most bakeries, they allowed for dinner to be the star of the show since day one.
I unfortunately have only been to the Copper Hen for breakfast and brunch, but my experiences have been some that I want to share! The light, open, and airy space leaves you feeling refreshed and welcomed. On the contrary, the rustic exposed wall paper and wooden beams give you a feeling of home.
It’s always amazing when the food can complete the ambiance of a space and that’s exactly what the menu accomplishes for The Copper Hen. The brunch menu succeeds with dishes from savory to sweet. My “go to” it seems every time I visit is the toast bar, I can’t turn it down. The toast bar consists of four slices of fresh baked bread and your choice of twelve deconstructed toppings. These toppings range from Nutella to parsley pesto and prosciutto to poached eggs. It the perfect craving crushing when you can’t decide between sweet or savory, it’s the perfect mixture of both!
Also, for all my mimosa lovers, they offer a $9 bottomless mimosa! Sold!
