I’m somewhat embarrassed and ashamed to admit I’ve never stepped foot into Tao Foods even though I have lived in the neighborhood for longer than I care to share. I’ve always been Tao curious but just never veered off Hennepin to check out the 40+ year old store where you can buy products that will do everything from helping you to align your chakras to getting your digestive track in order (naturally, of course) and everything in between.
It took Mr. B’s Mom reading an article about the recently overhauled cafe to get me in the door. At her request we ventured out on a Sunday morning for brunch. The prices are a teensy bit spendy but you get what you pay for in terms of quality, organic ingredients. Go here for clean, healthy food and if you want to wash it down with a milkshake (or better a yet a beer or glass of wine) that’s your prerogative. I had the breakfast sandwich which was simple and delicious. I say teensy spendy on the prices because my sandwich was literally a slice of bread, egg, cheese sprouts, tomato and avocado no sides for $6.50. So depending on your priorities, you might find this a little steep. Mr. B had the breakfast burrito. I caught him dousing it in salt a couple of times… but that’s another story entirely.
Loved it – go often for healthy food options in a super cute environment. And if you want, there’s a 1/2 price bottle of wine night on Tuesdays and a Monday night date deal ($28 for 2 entrees + 2 glasses of wine + 1 dessert!).
