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 to People's Organic Café in Edina. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of breakfast and fair-trade coffee available all day.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dinner and drinks between 4 p.m. and closing.
The meal maestros at People's Organic Café transform organic, sustainable, and local ingredients into savory dishes to pair with fair-trade coffee and local draft brews. Stock up on nutrients to tackle a day of staring energetically at computer screens with a breakfast croissant ($8), in which eggs mingle with swiss cheese and bacon; like the rest of the café's breakfast menu, it's available all day. Bleary-eyed patrons can pair plates with eyelid-energizing cupfuls of organic fair-trade coffee served in café americanos ($2, 12 oz.) or agave almond milk lattes ($4, 12 oz.).
For dinner, the People's bison burger ($12) packs local bison meat, bacon, fontina, and roasted tomatoes together within an organic sprouted wheat bun, where their harmonious flavors work in concert like a quartet of mayo-slathered crooners. Match eats with local draft beers, such as the Surly Furious ale ($6) and the Fulton Sweet Child of Vine IPA ($5), or drink wines by the glass, carafe, or bottle that best accommodates a stylish crazy straw.

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.
