An elderly friend is taking me out for breakfast on Saturday, and I'm looking for a nice place to go in Uptown-St.Louis Park area (the part near Lake Street/Excelsior Blvd.) But I'm stumped - I can't think of anything!
For this occasion, "a nice breakfast place" means: inexpensive (she's treating), table ordering and service (which leaves out French Meadow Bakery?), quiet enough to talk, and not too mobbed or crowded on a Saturday morning. And, of course, not a chain.
My friend has pretty traditional tastes, so exotically ethnic or wildly spicy wouldn't work. Also, she has a very small appetite, so I'm looking for a place that has small plates and side dishes, not just a few huge omelets or gigantic pancakes.
