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.

Our farmers’ fields have spoken: SPRING has arrived and with it, all the fresh, fabulous flavors of the season!


Our Spring menu is in full bloom with the ingredients we’ve patiently waited to taste again: delicate greens, fiddlehead ferns, rhubarb, ramps, bright green asparagus, sweet peas, spring onions, peppery radishes, and fresh herbs picked from our garden. Savor the sweet season of Spring with our new menu!
