The Tiny Minnesota Farm Town That’s Now A Midwest Food Destination
Most people don’t consider the Midwest a hot spot to get a good meal. That goes double for small towns in the Midwest. But we’re here to tell you that there are plenty of small towns all over the region with restaurants that will knock your socks off. Here in Minnesota, one of the best food destinations is the little farm town of Sauk Centre. Tough this town isn’t a large metropolis, it is home to several delicious restaurants that draw visitors from miles around. Take a look:
Sauk Centre is a small central Minnesota town best known for its Main Street made famous by Sinclair Lewis in 1920.
Along that Main Street - and scattered throughout town - are some of the tastiest restaurants you'll find anywhere.
JT's Pub and Grill is a great place to unwinder after a long week. The atmosphere is homey, with plenty of locals adding to the ambiance.
As for the food, you can't go wrong with any of the classic American fare on the menu. Try out a burger with your beer. You won't be sorry.
Elmerz is another popular spot in this little town. They offer a slightly more upscale setting, but they don't skimp on the portions.
Whether you get an appetizer, burger, or surf and turf, you will not leave hungry.
If it's an all-American breakfast diner you're after, Ding Dong Cafe is about as charming as they come.
Their hearty food draws hungry diners from all around. You can't go wrong with breakfast, but the menu is made up of plenty other homestyle favorites.
Each of these restaurants is fantastic, but there's one outside of town that takes things one step further. Just outside of this tiny farm town is an entire farm restaurant .Tutti Fruiti Kitchen & Market Farm is not to be missed.
With many ingredients grown just a few feet away, it'll be one of the freshest meals you'll ever have. Top it off with a homemade baked treat, and you'll be in hog heaven.
These are just a small sampling of the great eateries Sauk Centre has to offer. Dig a little deeper and you'll find tasty breakfast at Trucker's Inn Truck Stop, fresh coffee at Jitters Java Cafe, and so much more!
