You know you’re in rural Minnesota when . . .
The name of the coffee and sandwich shop is a dairy-related pun.
As you may know, I love puns. And coffee. And sandwiches. So, it’s no surprise that Calf Fiend Cafe in Redwood Falls is my new favorite place for lunch.
A friend and I stopped there yesterday on our way to a meeting. It was our first visit (RWF is an hour and a half from Litch), but we immediately fell in love with the place.
The homemade bread (molasses multi grain yesterday).
The friendly server (and bread baker) with the finely waxed handlebar mustache.
The giant paper mache calf cavorting in front of the pastry case.
The homemade bread. (Seriously, it was so good we bought extra to take home instead of having dessert. Although, full disclosure: when I say “instead of dessert”, I of course mean, “instead of having a cookie and the Dairy Queen treats we had on the way home from the meeting).
Truly, the Calf Fiend Cafe is a gem. If you are a Minnesota reader, you should go there. In fact, call me up and we can go together. We can hit Ramsey Park to see the Falls and the zoo, and maybe the aquatic center after lunch. It will be calffiendtastic.
What’s your favorite place for lunch?
P.S. I borrowed these photos from Calf Fiend Cafe’s Facebook page. Visit them there and see a few more!
