Brunch at Edina Grill

This weekend marked my first visit to Edina Grill (my second to last stop on the Blue Plate Restaurant Company tour...although not sure I'll be making it out to Maple Grove any time soon). I've always thought of Longfellow Grill in Minneapolis as my favorite of the Blue Plate restaurants. It still is, but Edina Grill easily slid in as my second favorite.

Edina Grill is a great spot for brunch. It's ideally located on 50th and France in Edina and has a fairly extensive breakfast menu.

When we arrived Saturday morning, I was extremely grateful that we called ahead, leaving us with just a short 10-minute wait. The restaurant was filled to the brim, and we were seated in a booth just off the bar.
After not much deliberation, I decided to order the breakfast burrito. I vaguely recall reading somewhere that it's a superb choice. I wholeheartedly agree. It is stuffed with roasted pulled pork, black bean salsa, hash browns, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese, and served with salsa verde, sour cream and salsa roja. I. Loved. It.
The best part about the burrito is that, while it's hearty and very filling, it doesn't have all the grease of your standard "bacon, eggs and hash browns" breakfast.

While Longfellow will always be in my heart (most notably for its cooler ambiance and slightly superior service), I don't feel the least bit guilty adding Edina Grill in as a regular in my still new-ish neighborhood.


  1. This place is awesome. Have you ever eaten at their neighbor Salut? If no, you got to and order the french onion soup... if you're into that kind of stuff.

  2. I have been to Salut's Grand Avenue location...great outdoor patio. I'll have to check out the Edina location and try the French onion soup for my next visit.
