Louise's Place: Two Harbors, Minnesota


Recommended Posts

In all the time I've lived in this area, I've never really noticed Louise's Place. It's an unassuming little place in what passes for downtown Two Harbors, close to the waterfront.




A couple of weeks ago I had occasion to be in town for breakfast.  I noticed the sign. I tried the door, which opened on an interior stairway. I went up the stairs and peered in.




It's small, and clearly one of the places the locals hang out for breakfast. For reasons I can't explain, I was shy about taking more pictures, so there's none of the counter or menu. This is about half the dining area. The artwork and crafts are all for sale.


Their special of the day was a sausage patty on a freshly-made biscuit, with cheese. This particular combination should sound familiar to anyone who visits places like Burger King or McDonald's. Those joints can only dream of making something as good as this. 




I don't usually eat large breakfasts, but if I'm in town again at the right time, I'll go back to Louise's to try them again. I asked whether they were new, since I'd never noticed them before. Nope...they've been around since 1992!
