Grand Marais, MN

My husband (posts as mtullius here) my 10-month old, and I are heading up to Grand Marais for a long weekend. We'll be staying at a house that my mother has rented in town and so will likely eat several of our meals there. But I'd like to know some good places to go- preferably for lunch and breakfast. They'd need to be welcoming of a 10-month old (we take her most places we go in the Twin Cities...I mean, I wouldn't take her to La Belle Vie but it's not like we eat there with any frequency anyway).

We tend to like places that use seasonal, locally-sourced produce & meats but we also dig dive-y diners and great Indian or Vietnamese or Thai, etc (among our favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities are Brasa, The Strip Club, Al's Breakfast, Bangkok Thai Deli, Mañana, Ngon Bistro, Saigon). A good beer list is a definite plus (for frame of reference, Ngon's beer list is *outstanding* not just good!). I don't know that Grand Marais is big enough for various "ethnic" places but please let me know if I'm wrong! We will be with my mother though, so probably nothing too adventurous.

I've heard good things about the Angry Trout (is that the right name)...warranted?

Does the World's Best Doughnuts actually have really good doughnuts?
