I've already been there! I think I am going to take a trip out to Cake Eater Bakery and sample their goods today. Also, I will possibly order myself a birfdayyy cake for upcoming 25th year of existence. This might be a bad call though because so far there are only two guests invited to my party and we might not make it out bowling after so much cake!!

Hey MSP folks: vegetarian tasting menu at HauteDish!

Looks like it might be able to be made vegan-friendly, too.

Good to know! I'm like a 3 minute drive from there and just read the good reviews on vegguide

Great, I'm looking forward to it!! Thanks for the other suggestions.

Is this place strictly Indian curry? Manfriend and I have heard great things but the fact that it might be Indian food scares us. I've had some bad past experiences with Indian curry and am a little frightened.

Seward Cafe is great! Get anything. The baked goods are very tasty. I usually get whatever their vegan special is and I've not been disappointed yet.

I like their vegan version of a sausage egg mcmuffin, along with a side of hashbrowns. Tasty.

Can anyone tell me about their experiences at Ecopolitan? I've had mixed experiences at raw food restaurants, but in general do like raw food. I guess the question is, did their "cheese" make you have to ask "Is this vegan?".

I love their nut cheese and their smoothies. Have you tried their parfait? That and the live pizzas are fricking amazing. I stick to them because I know they're safe bets. Everything else kind of scares me.

Thanks for your review. I just wanted to know if it was worth checking out. Getting something not fried would be a healthy change from my recent obsession with the mother biker at triple rock.

Fasika in St. Paul (on Snelling) is my absolute favourite.

This is the most snow I've ever seen here. It was crazy! The worst thing about it is that Minneapolis' plow system is so not capable of handling blizzards that bad. I was stuck inside all of Saturday, literally snowed in.

Its good to hear everyone was safe. I went to work from ne to uptown on the bus...got sent home early. I was on the way back home went the buses could only drop off downtown. Got stuck downtown for hours until my wonderful friend met me halfway between uptown and downtown and just stayed at her place. It was crazy just walking in the middle of the street on Hennepin. Everyone helping each other out was lovely...it seems like everyone has a story how they helped out or was helped out.

I saw that too. People are getting smart about this stuff. I just stayed in all weekend and moped about how my car was buried.
