Healthful lunch options - Twin Cities

Hi fellow Chowhounds,
I need help finding a good - reasonable $ - healthful option for lunch. I am taking out a friend whom I haven't seen in a while because of her poor health. St. Paul, Minneapolis - doesn't matter - I imagine a selection of good salads, ice tea, fish, sandwiches - she doesn't care fo Chinese (too heavy) so anything else - she's a native New Yorker who's spent many years in Miami so we can be adventurous -
Oh, and a place that will let a couple of gals chat for a couple of hours of decent food.......
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
try "French Meadow Bakery and Cafe". It's casual has a big selection of healthy meals and you can stay as long as you want. I'm sure they have a website - google them. We've eaten there often and highly enjoy their bread, soups and salads.
Thanks - I guess I've got to get back to Birchwood and give it another chance! It seems to be a local favorite.........I ended up going to Longfellow Grill - and it was great fun. The server was wonderful, the turkey burger was awesome and my friend had a chicken salad that she was raving about. It was right on the edge of Mpls/St. Paul which was perfect since she's St. Paul and I'm Minneapolis.......
