Two restaurant experiences in Rochester, Minnesota

A few weeks ago, we visited my brother in Rochester, Minnesota. Home to IBM and Mayo Clinic, it’s a neat little city with some very cool eating places. City Cafe is located downtown, and focuses on both fresh seafood and ocean fish. I ordered a Thai noodle bowl with scallops, Gulf shrimp, vegetables, and a Thai-inspired sauce with plenty of zest.

For breakfast the next morning, we went to Pannekoeken, a diner that is well known for its Dutch-style pancakes. These breakfast treats remind me of popovers—maybe even “eggier” and slightly sweeter. I ordered a banana pannekoeken with rum sauce on the side.
