DETAILS

Scenically located overlooking the Mississippi River, Nicollet Island Inn features gourmet dining facilities for any special occasion and then some, topped by its famed, five-course Sunday champagne brunch. A Minneapolis landmark, the inn itself is absolutely enchanting, with love-seat-by-fireplace charm and century-old elegance. Lunch in the dining room may feature a salmon niçoise salad or steak frites as an entrée, while dinner specialties include house-made pâtés and sausages as well as entrées such as venison and young range hen. Sunday brunch more than lives up to its star billing. Toast your good fortune with a mimosa, a Bloody Mary or some fresh-squeezed juice. The first course includes house-made breakfast pastries, with scones, muffins and tarts worthy of afternoon tea in London. The second and third courses are small, delicate servings of playful variations on old standards: eggs Benedict with leeks, or crème brûlée French toast. The fourth, and main, course includes delectable choices such as grilled trout with haricots verts. The fifth course is dessert - indulgence at its finest. Try the chocolate profiteroles.

Full bar. Serving breakfast and lunch Mon-Sat, dinner nightly. Sun brunch 9:30 am-1:30 pm. "Owners Larry and Caryl Abdo have given this 100-year-old charmer — originally a sash and door factory — a fresh outlook. Located on an island in the Mississippi River, just upstream from St. Anthony Falls and opposite downtown Minneapolis, the Nicollet Island Inn is a good choice for a romantic meal with a view since the setting is undeniably cozy yet elegant."
