Favorite restaurants to suggest for our leaf-peeping tour along the St. Croix and Missippi?
+1 Harbor View Cafe. They don't open until 5 pm. No reservations. You have to get in line. Best to get there about an hour before. It's always busy.
I just read about a vineyard there that looked interesting and beautiful. I don't remember the name. I tore something out of Mpls/St. Paul magazine. I'll look for more specific information tomorrow or you can google it, if interested.
Stockholm is a lovely place to explore with some nice cafes.
Last summer my husband and I ate lunch at the Harbor View Cafe in Pepin, WI a few times and loved it. I can't recall a whole lot of detail, just that I had a chicken dish with preserved lemons and olives that was swoontastic. The service was out of this world, too, in a casual sort of way.
