Minneapolis and St. Paul Eats: Brunch at The Happy Gnome

My Minneapolis friend shlepped all the way to St. Paul for brunch at The Happy Gnome - delicious, and tons of food!

Bloody Mary, fresh from the incredibly well stocked bloody bar.  Six different blends of tomato juice and about 20 garnishes.  Not messing around, oh no.  

(also, for those readers not familiar with getting beer with your bloody mary, it's definitely a thing in Minnesota and Wisconsin - it'll either be called a beer chaser or a beer back....or if you're really traditional, a snit).

The croque madame almost did me in...I gave up halfway through, partly due to the volume of food, but also due to the fact that our chilly spot next to the window had rendered my food rather cold. It was quite tasty, though!
