I like big scarfs, and I can not lie, HAHA get it because I’m always wearing big scarfs and it’s cold … Never-mind. As I stated in my pervious post here, just because I’m new to Minneapolis, and I’m not used to this much snow-ie cold, doesn’t mean I get a free pass to hibernate all winter. I mean shoot, I’m already getting white enough as it is, #needatan. After scouring the web, and stalking on Instagram, I found that a lot of people were going to Minnehaha Falls now that it’s frozen. Gotta say, the place was really awesome. It’s so crazy to be able to walk on water, yet find places (not anywhere I walked because I’m too scared) where the water is still flowing between gaps in the ice CRAZY! I’m sure after a while I’ll be like yea, yea, yea everyone knows this, but for now as a newbie I’m like WHOA.
After visiting the falls we went to grab some food at Barbette. Now I’m sure most of you, like Gita and my sister, are wondering where the food pictures are at. For the moment the ones I take are not worthy to be posted, too dark, blurry, randos in background, etc. I promise that I will try to get better at taking food pictures so that I can share all the yummie-ness, for now you have to rely on my words. We went to Barbette for brunch, but they actually have a dinner menu as well. The restaurant is super popular so I recommend making a reservation, especially for brunch. Inside the place is a cozy bistro type atmosphere that smells of coffee, which is great because I LOVE COFFEE. If you didn’t guess from the name, the menu had the usual brunch suspects and french bistro type items all made with fresh local ingredients. There were so many things I wanted to try but settled on : breakfast poutine, poached organic eggs, croissant, and coffee (teaser photo here). Everything was yummy and I’m going to return because I still want to try the crepe and vegetable hash.
