Twin Cities Lunch | The Happy Gnome in St. Paul

Monday, November 11, 2013

The Happy Gnome has recently become our favorite spot to have lunch. When Rob's brother Dan came to visit us a few weeks ago, Rob put together a list of places that had awesome beer selections. We stopped by The Happy Gnome for lunch and loved it so much that we were back again the next day for dinner. They have a huge selection of beers and quite a few hard ciders, as well, but it's the burgers that keep us coming back. Any burger that comes topped with pulled pork is fine by me. The adorable neighborhood and the fact that their mixed greens salad is so good that sometimes I actually want it instead of fries helps, too.

I always get a Bloody Mary and the Angus Cheeseburger without a bun or cheese, and Rob gets a beer and the Game Burger, which is bison and elk and comes with lingonberry mayo. Everything is good.


My Bloody Mary garnishes didn't make the photo opp--see a complete picture here.

  3. Wow, this place sounds amazing! Definitely will remember for my next trip to the cities! Thanks :)


  4. I haven't been there in ages but I love The Happy Gnome! The first time I went there was with a friend who I totally thought was vegetarian until she ordered a burger. :)
