Best granola?

s

I love granola with lots of nuts and dried fruit when I go out for breakfast/brunch.
I do like it at Good Day Cafe but thought I should branch out a bit.
I live in Maple Grove but am willing to travel for this. :)

Any suggestions?

    I love the granola and yogurt at Lucia's To Go (the bakery/express part of the restaurants) in Uptown. Admittedly, I don't recall an excess of nuts or dried fruit in it - so it's probably not there - but it's great granola.

      The Longfellow and the Highland Grill (owned by the same group) used to have killer granola - but I'm looking at the menu online now and I don't see it.

      Anyone know if they still have it, or if it is, in fact, gone?

        3 Squares, owned by the same group as the two you mentioned, is where my love for granola began! They no longer have it either, which is why I am now looking for a replacement.

          Have you tried Bliss granola? They sell at local stores and farmer markets.

            Bon Vie and Trotter's both have it, though I haven't tried it at either place (I seldom eat granola, so I'm not much of a judge)

            Also, Birchwood Cafe http://www.birchwoodcafe.com/menu/men... , French Meadow http://www.frenchmeadowcafe.com/menus... and Spoonriver http://spoonriver.com/restaurant/our-...

            The new Ice House makes its own yogurt...I assume the granola is housemade too? http://www.icehousempls.com/food/

            I like the granola I get at Franklin St. Bakery, but that's not going "out" for breakfast, I'm afraid.

              I like the granola from Birchwood.
