Agriculture bends nature’s will in order to provide nutrition for mankind, just as humans use dams to produce electricity and bags of Skittles to make rainbows. Bask in nature’s bounty with today's Groupon for organic fare at the People's Organic Café in Edina. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $24 worth of dinner.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of breakfast and fair-trade coffee.
The meal maestros inside People's Organic Café transform organic, sustainable, and local ingredients into savory dishes to pair with fair-trade coffee and local draft brews. The People's bison burger combines local bison, fontina, bacon, roasted tomatoes, romaine, mayo, and pickles, all pressed inside an organic 100% sprouted wheat bun ($9.95). Forks break through a golden puff pastry to enjoy the rustic salmon pot pie ($10.95) and its flavorful flowing stream of fresh salmon and wintery vegetables, served with an organic salad and roasted garlic balsamic vinaigrette. For the herbivore-oriented, the café molds two veggie burgers, one of which is made from fresh herbs, organic lentils, brown rice, sundried tomato, tofu, mayo, and toasted walnuts and topped with wild mushrooms, vegetables, organic bibb lettuce, and sunflower sprouts on an organic 100% sprouted wheat bun ($9.95). Pair amiable eats with an array of local draft beers, such as the Surly Coffee Bender Ale ($6), the Cynic Saison ($6), and the Fulton Sweet Child of Vine IPA ($5). Servers also pour a bevy of wines by the glass, carafe, or bottle to satisfy glass, carafe, or bottle-sized thirsts.
Stock up on nutrients to tackle a day of typing and chair-sitting with a breakfast croissant, a satisfying sandwich of eggs, swiss cheese, bacon, roasted tomatoes, and guacamole ($8.95). Diners can also charge up rooster-wrangling muscles with the organic solstice tofu scramble, spiced with Himalayan Indian masala, green onions, roasted tomatoes, and peppers, and served with fried organic potatoes and organic toast ($8.95). After spending a night dreaming of steel children and living motorcycles, pair plates with eyelid-peeling cupfuls of organic fair-trade coffee crafted into café americanos ($1.95, 12 oz.) or agave almond milk lattes ($3.95, 12 oz.).
Peoples Organic Cafe
In a series of black and white portraits that pop against the backdrop of rich burgundy walls, smiling farm workers stationed around the world stand amid their crops, tools in hand. The photographs are the first hint at Peoples Organic Café's mission to link ingredients back to their source. The second hint is the menu, which boasts a roster of local farms: the ham comes from Fischer Farm, the chicken sausage from Schultz Farm, and the bison from Eichtens Family Farm. Chefs spotlight these free-range meats in wholesome burgers, wraps, and salads, which they enhance with fresh, organic veggies and housemade sauces. To complement meals, the café boasts a beer menu filled with choices from local breweries such as the limited-supply Surly and Fulton. Additionally, its wine selection runneth over with biodynamic, organic, and sustainable varietals, which are tastier than their unsustainable counterpart, unicorn tears.
