Best Place for Twins Pre-Game Meal - Ike's Food and Cocktails

Prior to heading to our first game at Target Field, Vera and I stopped off at Ike's Food and Cocktails in downtown Minneapolis for their famous pre-game brunch. We started out with their requisite Bloody Mary, which is a meal in itself. It comes garnished with shrimp, cheese, beef stick, celery, pickle, onion, black olive, green olive, green bean, lime, and pepperoncini. The drink was spicy and tasty, and the beer chaser was a great accompaniment.

The brunch starts with a caramel roll that, according to the menu, is "as big as your head." As you can see by the picture, they don't exaggerate. The next course includes eggs made to order, pancakes, hash browns, sausage, bacon, and toast. All are delicious, and brought to your table by a smiling waitress that will continue to bring it out until you tell her to stop. Topped with a fresh-baked and still hot mini cookie served with the bill, and we had easily had consumed both breakfast and lunch (and maybe even a good chunk of dinner) prior to the first pitch.

All in, breakfast and drinks cost us less than $60. Fun atmosphere, great people, and close location to both the Dome and Target Field make Ike's Food and Cocktails a perfect place for a pre-game load up.
