Restaurant review

New restaurant review: Churchill St.

Churchill Street Counter

A lineup of surprisingly talented chefs and bakers came together to create the perfect neighborhood restaurant in Shoreview. A beautiful, open, modern farmhouse design is as welcoming and caring as each of the menu items at Churchill St.

Honeynut squash

Don’t miss the honey squash with its wonderful display of textures of roasted pumpkin seeds and honey-soaked cranberries over yogurt. Tomato soup and a vegetable sandwich are a great way to start or end the day.

Veggie Sandwich

And each salad is enhanced with a special twist: fried capers on the kale Caesar, creamy apple vinaigrette on the Tuscany and toasted garlic on the house salad. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich with Chipotle Mayonnaise is teen-approved, as is the Caramelized Onion Smash Burger.

Tuscan Kale Salad

Elegant avocado or smoked salmon toast may make you think of The Bachelor Farmer, where part of that crew worked, including the pastry chef responsible for one of the best old-fashioned glazed donuts in our state.

Chicken sandwich

This is a more counter service restaurant where you order at a cashier and a courier brings your meal to you. A few weeks ago they were able to recruit enough staff to start dinner service – and I can’t wait to check it out. In the meantime, I can guarantee the high quality daily brunch and a gathering space that makes you feel like home.
