Sun Street Bread and Weekly Menu 3/21 - 3/25/11

Today was the day we'd been waiting for since the Kingfield Farmers Market closed for the season in October. Today was the opening of the Sun Street Breads bakery!
Sun Street Breads
Last summer we became quickly addicted to Solveig Tofte's bread, pastries & especially biscuits from her booth at the farmer's market. Soon the rest of Minneapolis caught on & she had lines before the market even opened on Sunday mornings. Lucky for us, she & her husband Martin Ouimet decided to open a new bakery & cafe in the neighborhood so we could get our fix all the time (this might actually be dangerous).

The new bakery is a bright, cheery place with lots of big windows to light up the fun mural & tiled walls. The kitchen is open, allowing you to see the bakers at work & Solveig to chat with all the customers as they come in for their morning treats. Of course, what we're here for is the food. The breads we love are back, Lunchbox, Figgy Rye & the classic baguette, as well as the famous biscuits & turnovers. But even better, Sun Street is serving breakfast & lunch. All summer we talked about what a great breakfast sandwich the biscuits would make & now that dream has come true. I had the basic biscuit sandwich with bacon, scrambled eggs & cheddar all on that buttery, flaky biscuit. Matt had a Juicy Piggy, a breakfast take on the Juicy Lucy with a pepper jack stuffed sausage patty, lettuce & tomato. He had them add some scrambled eggs to it for a really hearty breakfast. The bakery also offers full egg & potato, pancake & biscuit & gravy breakfasts until 2:00pm. I'm looking forward to having the biscuit with fried chicken & bacon soon.

With all that good bread Sun Street is also offering a lot of lunch sandwich options too. We need to go back to try the Porketta with fennel slaw & the really interesting sounding Susan, apple butter & fried shallot cream cheese. Since they have Wi-Fi it'll be easy for us to go & have a leisurely lunch plus get a little work done. We understand dinner plus beer & wine will be added to the menu later in the year. We couldn't have asked for a better addition to the neighborhood!

Sun Street is at the corner of 46th & Nicollet in South Minneapolis. It's open daily from 6:30 am to 2:30 pm.
