SAT 24 MAY: Angry Trout Cafe

Half the reason we decided to come to Grand Marais for Memorial Day Weekend was to revisit the Angry Trout Cafe -- we first discovered this restaurant last fall, and were thrilled to return and gorge ourselves on more local, organic, sustainable food.
Angry Trout has to be one of the happiest places on earth -- the food is incredible and healthy, they use 100% wind power for the restaurant, and they feature as many local, sustainable foods and products as they can. Examples include all of the dinnerware, which is made by a local potter. Here's how my tea was served:
And my dinner, a large plate of homemade spinach pasta tossed with pesto, and a side salad with buttermilk bleu cheese dressing. YUUUUUUMMMMM!
I was too full for dessert, which was really disappointing -- they had some delicious-sounding selections. After supper, we headed to the hotel before we passed out from fatigue -- we had two more days ahead, and needed our rest for more fun to come!
