When Daniel & I visited Minneapolis recently, we went to one of my favourite neighborhoods, Linden Hills. Just a few blocks from Lake Harriet, this is such a fun spot to eat, browse, get coffee, and visit the best kid's bookstore in town.
When I lived in Minneapolis, I used to drive over to Great Harvest Bread Co. in Linden Hills every Thursday to pick up a loaf of their delicious spelt bread.
Great Harvest is a national chain that makes delicious bread (& cookies, scones, granola...) fresh every morning.
When you visit the front counter, they give out free (very large!) slices of bread. We tried the gluten-free bread & caramel apple bread, of course with lots of butter, and were not disappointed.
The Great Harvest in Linden Hills is a cozy spot to stop for a cup of coffee, a snack, & a few loaves of their wonderful bread. They even have a kid's corner, dog treats, & a mural of nearby Lake Harriet.
