We thank all of you for your patience and ongoing loyal support as we navigate this challenging time. We WILL get through this together!!
Minnesota State Fair '21: It's On, We're Back!
It's been a long, strange, 2-year wait, but yes! The Minnesota State Fair is back, and French Meadow is right in there with our fair favorites, like our signature fresh-baked, Fruit-Stuffed Buttermilk Scones with Cream Cheese Topping (the peach variety was just named one of "15 foods that belong in the Minnesota State Fair hall of fame" by Rick Nelson of the Star-Tribune); our yummy little nuggets of gluten-free indulgence, Mini Sconuts; savory vegetarian Risotto Poppers; the best fresh baked croissants this side of Paris; our crowd-pleasing vegan and gluten-free Earth Wings; plus specialty coffees, refreshing drinks, hot sandwiches and oh so much more...As always, Deb & Chris will be working hard behind the scenes with their dedicated Fair crew starting in the wee hours, and we'll be open bright and early at 6:30 am, making us a best-bet first stop for a luscious breakfast.
Look for French Meadow - we're the turqoise & green awning -- at Carnes Avenue & Underwood Street.
YES! Indoor Dining Returns
After a state-mandated takeout/delivery-only period, both our Lyndale Avenue flagship location in Minneapolis and our Grand Avenue, St. Paul restaurant are open for indoor dining with social distancing in place. Please remember that masks are required for all employees and guests.
Be assured that we continue to exercise stringent COVID-19 safety protocols, and also continue to offer our takeout with curbside pickup option as well as delivery.
