What To Eat

1. Northstar Cafe

Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, this cafe in Liberty Center is a must-have for any relaxing trip. Regardless of what time of the day you decide to go, the food is locally grown, organic, and delicious. But personally, this is a brunch favorite. Their Cloud Nine Pancakes are light and fluffy, made with ricotta and topped off with maple syrup and fresh bananas. Choose from nine different breakfast cocktails, including the classic mimosa (a staple for any girls day brunch!) Check out the full menu here

4. Cozy's Cafe & Pub

This unique cafe and pub is a great choice for dinner, or Sunday morning brunch. Cozy's Cafe and Pub fully embraces farm-to-table cooking, and delivers on gourmet comfort food with an imaginative twist. Have a seat in a farmhouse dining room, get cozy in the industrial style pub, or sit fireside on the patio enjoying live entertainment. Their menu was made for a girl's get-together. Start off with a charcuterie board and then try out their amazing steak and seafood entrees. If the girls want to try brunch, you can't go wrong with their chicken & waffles... and be sure to grab a mimosa pitcher for the table!
