MSP-airport breakfast

Where is a good place for a good breakfast at MSP? Thanks.

  1. French Meadow Bakery. The location at the entrance to the E concourse has sit-down service with hot breakfasts as well as a swell pastry case. The smaller outpost on the F concourse has more limited options. Definitely get a wild rice cake if they have one left.

      What Jordan said. Unless you want sushi for breakfast, in which case go to the food court in the center of the airport - the Chinese place has edible pre-packaged sushi.


    2. Ike's serves a nice cooked-to-oreder breakfast in the central concourse. Food came out fast, and they did a great job with extra-crispy hashbrowns. I like French Meadow as well, but Ike's is more hearty. FM has great pastries, and I agree with Jordan about the wild rice cake.

      1. Thanks for the suggestions! FMB looks great as well as Ike's. I'll see what I come to first. Thanks for the suggestion but I think I'll pass on the pre pkgd. sushi at 7:30 in the morning(I'm sure you were joshing, right?)! Thanks chowhounders. You've come through again!!

          French Meadow and Ike's are basically next door to each other - so you'll have your pick! Safe travels.

            Depends on which concourse. There are two FMBs, one at the crossing next to Ike's, and another around F7.

            Another brekkers option if you're down on G is Cuervo Tequileria (I know, I know - a chain. But it's a good one). They have pretty yummy Mexican breakfast staples.

              I'm sorry, Loren, but I have to respectfully disagree. I fly weekly out of MSP, and have tried Tequileria more than once, and been sorely disappointed. Dry eggs, stale tortillas, pressed-meat texture to their grilled chicken. When I have to fly out of G, I'd stop off at Wolfgang Puck's and get a breakfast pizza before I'd go to Tequileria again.

              I was really surprised at how fresh, not pre-made Ike's breakfast was, and also how close French Meadow's quality is to that of their actual restaurant. Not the same for Tequileria.
