TDG Food Bracket St. Paul- #1 The Happy Gnome vs. #16 Cafe Latte

Beer and bistro vs desserts and coffee

We finish up our round of 64 voting in our inaugural TDG Twin Cities Food Bracket with the 1 vs 16 matchup from the St. Paul Region. A reminder that the voting will run from 7am CT today (7/11) until 6:59am CT  Wednesday (7/13). Whichever venue has the most votes when the polls close will advance. Good luck!

#1 The Happy Gnome

Yelp Rating: 4 stars

Why people love it:

I took a chance on this place on a business trip. I went mainly for the craft beer selection which was enormous. There is a casual outdoor patio in the back. Plenty of room at the bar to eat. Food was great as well. I ordered the Game Burger which was a blend of bison, elk, bacon and horseradish with grilled blue cheese onions on top.  It was cooked to a perfect medium rare. Name another place on the planet that serves this concoction. Excellent. Fries were good and I dipped them in the lingonberry aioli
Can't wait to get back here to try their duck burger and sample more local beer
