At the Birchwood, we create fresh, unique food with down-home appeal. We source local, sustainable, organic and fair trade ingredients to lovingly handcraft a variety of vegan, vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. We take care to know the land, the animals and the people we work with are treated with care & respect.

We offer breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, dinner, and desserts (plus beer, wine & cocktails!) – all with ingredients sourced from our friends on organic farms and farms that use sustainable practices in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Click on your wildest culinary desire and see what the Birchwood menus have in store for you.

Birchwood Cafe — good real food for everyone.

At the Birchwood, we celebrate 8 seasons: Spring, Summer, Scorch, Autumn, Dusk, Frost, Winter, and Thaw. We don't take our cues from the calendar, rather we look to our farmer friends, and in the colder months their root cellars, to guide and inspire our creativity in the kitchen.

It's officially FALL! You can feel it in the crispness of the morning air and see it in the changing leaves along the river. You can smell it in the aroma of roasted squash wafting out from our ovens and taste it in our new Autumn menu!
