Please find below five organic restaurants in South Minneapolis that I suggest that you may want to visit.

Namaste Café

Namaste Café is very quaint and trendy. The restaurant is located in the Minneapolis Uptown neighborhood. If you like the eclectic taste of Himalayan Indian foods than you should visit the Namaste Café. They also serve a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. My favorite vegetarian dish Namaste Cafe’ serves is the egg plant with garlic scallions. Their award-winning chai is fantastic! In the summer months, you can take-in the atmosphere and also enjoy eating the delicious cuisine on their outside patio.

Tao Natural Café is a charming organic restaurant in the Lowry Hill neighborhood on the corner of 22nd & Hennepin on the north side of the commercial building.

The Tao Café menu offers anywhere from soup and salad to a delicious turkey sandwiches to a wide variety of vegetarian dishes. One of my favorite vegetarian sandwich on the menu is the mediterrian mild wrap. The strawberry smoothies are amazing. The staff is friendly. What more could you ask for?

Also, you will find Tao Café has a natural food store, which sells natural teas, supplements, herbs, and books. An added bonus is they offers health and wellness referral services; acupuncture, reiki, ayurvedic consultations, and therapeutic message. “Taoist philosophy:  Health achieved through a simple, balanced life in harmony with nature”.

French Meadow Cafe

French Meadow Cafe hours of operation is from 6:30 AM – 5:00 PM and is located in the Minneapolis Lake-Lyndale neighborhood. They serve healthy organic cuisines for breakfast and lunch. The Huevos Rancheros is phenomenal. In 2013, the French Meadow Café has expanded its restaurant to include the full service Bluestem Bar. The restaurant also boasts one of the finest wine and beer collection in the city, and is open for lunch and dinner only. My favorite main dish at the Bluestem Bar is the Almond Encrusted Walleye served with organic garlic potatoes.

If you are looking for organic restaurant within walking or biking distance of the Mississippi River & River Road, you may want to stop-by The Birchwood Café. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and also a delicious weekend brunch. They have a wide variety of cuisines on their menu, however I am a ‘big’ fan of their Turkey Burger on a potato bun and also their vegetable pizza is tasty. An added bonus to their flavorful meals is the beautiful artwork displayed in the restaurant dining room by local artist, Matthew Madson.
