Earth Wings are Coming to the State Fair!

Aug 17, 2018

Since 1996 French Meadow Bakery & Café has earned a loyal following among Minnesota State Fair-goers by offering natural, unique food options that are also deliciously indulgent.  This year we step up the game with our newest creation, Earth Wings®, as a featured new food on our fair menu. 

Already a hit appetizer at our Minneapolis and St. Paul flagship restaurants, Earth Wings® are made with fresh cauliflower pieces (“wings”), dipped in our signature seasoned batter, deep-fried to perfection, and smothered in organic sesame BBQ sauce. The savory, meaty texture will satisfy even dedicated meat lovers, yet they are both vegan and gluten-free.  They go perfectly with our Infused Cucumber Iced Lemonade – made with Minnesota-grown cucumbers and Meyer lemons -- a refreshing fan favorite over the last few years.

French Meadow also is offering State Fair visitors a Gluten-Free Rustic Sandwiches, created to further deliver on our commitment to offer delicious gluten-free options.

As always, we have a full variety of our famous gluten-free,  dairy-free, and vegan baked goods – all made from scratch on-site -- including cupcakes, muffins, cookies, bars, & brownies. Fair-goers looking for last year’s big hit, our Gluten-Free Mini Sconuts filled with Nutella hazelnut chocolate, dark chocolate & marshmallows topped with a dusting of powdered sugar,  will be happy to see them on the menu again. 

We also offer a variety of our traditional scones & croissants including our Signature Scone:  Split open warm, filled with fresh peaches or strawberries, and topped with our homemade Sweet Cream Cheese Topping,  they’re like shortcake, only better. Our grill has several made-to-order sandwiches plus our Gluten-Free Risotto Poppers, served with house-made chipotle sour cream.

Our Espresso Bar serves People’s Organic coffee and fresh brewed teas, all roasted in Minnesota, along with other sweet drinks.  Specialty non-dairy milks are available:  almond, hemp, soy, oat, and coconut.   French Meadow Bakery & Café remains committed to serving only fresh, natural, healthy, delicious foods to our Minnesota State Fair visitors.   All menu items are made on-site, from scratch.   We offer seating indoors and on our large patio.  We're located at 1703 Carne Avenue, across from Ye Olde Mill.
