Here's my Twin Cities list of food and good stuff to do:

for breakfast:
Seward Café
Hard Times
French Meadow (their 'classic vegan' is my favourite breakfast in the Cities)

for other meals:
Galactic Pizza (eco-pizza served by superheroes. good vegan cheese and faux meats, lovely tiki patio tables).
Rainbow Chinese (not vegan or even vegetarian, but super tasty and they will make many things vegan)
Jasmine Deli
the Wedge Food co-op (not a restaurant, but has a great deli and soft serve ice cream)
Ecopolitan (all raw)
Spoonriver
Birchwood Café (not all veg, but has stellar vegan options and bright retro feel. Great lemonade and outdoor seating)
Evergreen (all faux meat greasy Chinese)
Midori's Floating World (Japanese and sushi--lots of vegan options)

shopping:
stroll along Grand Avenue, St. Paul (from Victoria Crossing down to Macalester, great houses/shops
Smitten Kitten (lady-friendly sex store)
Tatters (decent used/vintage)
Via's Vintage Wear (higher end vintage)

stuff to do:
walk around Lake of the Isles
MIA
Sculpture Garden/Walker Art Centre
Minnehaha Falls (you can even rent a surrey!)
Mill City Museum (they have a replica Betty Crocker test kitchen!)
movies at the Lagoon and Uptown theatres
walk around Dinkeytown
music at the Cedar Cultural Center
F. Scott Fitzgerald walking tour of St. Paul (free, found online)
walk the stone arch bridge
Farmer's Markets! Mill City and downtown St. Paul are my favourites
theatre: Jungle, In the Heart of the Beast (big puppets!), Frank, Playwright's Center

If you have a car:
drive out to Franconia, a wonderful outdoor sculpture garden near the St. Croix, and then stop in Stillwater on the way home

I loooove Jasmine 26! I used to go to Jasmine Deli when it was just a tiny little place with no customers, I was so happy to see how successful they've become.

Oh...I wish you hadn't told me that! I've been craving donuts like mad lately and I can't wait to go to MSP to go to this place. Funny because last night, my rabbi was telling me how they now have hummus-filled donuts in Israel (which sounds kind of interesting and gross at the same time.)

Yes we will! It's going to be great. I'm the vegan donut baker dor DoCo, though our main baker has been doing all of the special orders for the last couple of months. I cannot wait until we open (hopefully sometime very soon). Have you had our vegan donuts? You should check us out when we do our thang at Trash Film Debauchery at the Turf Club on Monday nights, if you haven't already. :) Good to know people are talking about us.

I think we might work on a vegan savory donut, but personally, the thought of a vegan savory donut throws me off a bit. I was thinking like a vegan tomato basil donut or Daiya-filled something.

I haven't been able to make it out to trash film debauchery yet, but a tomato/basil donut sounds intriguing/phenomenal!

Pizza Luce has a really yummy "rinotta" cheese. I love their margherita pizza. Garlicky perfection!

We aren't there yet, but perhaps we could be. :) Our PR person would have to organize it! Thanks for the idea!

It's been anticipated for a while now! It's pretty much the most exciting thing happening with vegans around here. Haha.

Hey guys! Here's my vegan baking/cooking/whathaveyou blog:
http://minnesotavegan.blogspot.com/
I'm trying to keep people up to date on DoCo stuff while being silly and blogging about other things in the meantime. If you add me, make sure to let me know so I can add you too! And pssst...I just did my 6th MOFO entry on DoCo. :)
Yay!

what?? I just moved here! Tell me about these donuts!!

I just made some cookies tonight and while they are pretty scrumptious, there's something always more amazing about food you didn't make yourself.

Also, be sure to checkout the vegan options at Namaste Cafe. The tofu, mushroom, and peas dish along with the carrot coconut creme brulee are especially good!
