River Road LaCrosse to MSP
Any recs for nice (light, local, eclectic..) lunch place along the Mississippi between LaCrosse and Twin Cities?
I know I'll be stopping for ice-cream at the Penguin Zesto in Winona (love their fluorescent hard shell), so lunch nearby would be perfect.
We make the Twin Cities to La Crosse and back trip numerous times now that our son's family lives there. I guess I prefer the Minnesota side with stops in Wabasha to periodically check out the eagle sightings. A stop at the National Eagle Center is a must if you have any interest at all in birding and raptors.
There are two places of food as well as eclectic and local interest in the Historic Anderson House...
and Slippery's Bar and Grill, the fictional bar in the movie Grumpy Old Men and home of a pretty good hamburger with a view of the Mississippi and eagles.
I can't get this to work. Trempeleau Hotel in Trempeauleu Wis. I'm not spelling it right at all and am too rushed to Google. It's directly on the Mississippi, all homemade and across the river from Winona. Also the Monarch, for pizza (one hundred year old bar) in Fountain City, Wis., also across from Winona. And the original (main) Nelson Cheese House in Nelson, Wis.
