kosher in mn?
I found a list of only 4 kosher restuarants/bakeries in MN. There have to be more options than this, right? I'm looking for kosher desserts and candies. Help!
Here's the list: http://www.minnesotakosher.org/restau...
For those who might be doing a search, these four locations are named in rachel_reagan's link:
Byerlys, St. Louis Park
Fishmans, St Louis Park
Little Tel Aviv, Minneapolis
Breadsmith, 3 locations
My curiosity is definitely piqued now: do we know of any OTHER kosher spots, beyond what the OP identified in the beginning? Is that really all there are?
The site the OP references is the organization responsible for certifying establishments as being kosher in Minnesota - so that would be the definitive list of what is kosher in Minnesota - because they would include anything that might have been certified by one of the national organizations -
Considering it's the Twin Cities and a neighborhood SuperValu to boot, Cooper's, in Sibley Plaza on West 7th in St. Paul carries a surprising amount of kosher goods, including a maybe-10-foot refrigerated case for meats and dairy products. IIRC there's half of one side of an aisle of groceries and some frozen food, too. And, of course, the selection goes up exponentially around the holidays.
It wouldn't surprise me that the Lund's in Highland Park also has a relatively high proportion of kosher foods, though they carry so many different foods that it doesn't stand out as much as it does at Cooper's.
I can't speak to the certification aspect of it at all, however.
