Located in the old Linden Hills firehouse this charming wood and brick interior is muted in colors nestled in the SW lake district neighborhood village next to Lake Harriet. You might consider the food here comfort with an down-home earthy modern twist on ingrediants. Depending on season, you may find perfectly melted, clear-the-sinuses quesadilla, fresh greens jumbled with sliced peaches, sweet pistachios and savory Gorgonzola, or simple pasta with mushroom sauce. The popular buffalo flank steak with bacon and yam hash, or grilled meatloaf where a nice bite of crustiness gives way to the flavorful meat within. Desserts are delicious and homespun. Chocolate cake made with potatoes is dense and choco-addictive, slathered with rich sour cream frosting just like Mom. Sunday Brunch is the big meal at Cafe 28. Sidewalk opens in spring and remains thru summer.
