Anyone care to update Cafe Brenda? [MPLS, MN]

I wonder what current takes are on this longtime Mpls standout restaurant. I noticed in a post asking about vegetarian restaurants that no one mention it. I thought Cafe Brenda was supposed to be very good for vegetarian food?

    It is, and and makes lovely vegetarian food. It may be that Cafe Brenda also offers some fish dishes and free-range so that it falls off the strict vegetarian restaurant radar.
    If you want a hearty lunch, I would recommend the tempeh Reuben. And bring any leftovers to me! Cay

      BTW, here's a link from today's Strib on Cafe Brenda's sister restaurant., Spoonriver. I've not been, but from Nelson's description, it's bumped way up in my list. Cay
