There was a time during COVID when I wondered if buffets would ever come back. The idea of several people milling around the same area and using the same serving spoons was frowned upon by many. As someone who likes a good buffet, I was happy to see their return. Especially the Granite City Sunday Brunch Buffet, it’s always been my favorite.
But that’s not the buffet I’m here to talk about. I’m here to talk about top 20 best in the country and how one of them is from our great state Minnesota. I bet you already have ideas about what you think is the best. We all have our favorite and want it on the list. But only one made the list from here. For those who might need a quick refresher on what a buffet is, because it’s been a while. The dictionary defines it as:
a meal laid out on a table or sideboard for guests to serve themselves.
Having said that, Smagsbordet took pains to put together a list of the best across the country. As you can imagine, there were buffets on this list from Las Vegas, New York City and The angels. The usual top of the list big cities that seem to make all the “best of” lists around the country. But now, which Minnesota buffet made the list?
This remarkable buffet I can honestly say I had never even heard of before, but it looks like I need to get to know. What they say about this Minnesota gem:
If you’re looking for a buffet that values fresh, seasonal ingredients, you should head to Q. Cumbers in Edina, Minnesota, a suburb just outside of Minneapolis. We are salad fanatics and the salad bar at Q. Cumbers offers 50 feet of fresh, delicious greens and vegetables for those herbivores looking to get their fill of vegetarian goodness.
Don’t worry, they also have other great options if you want more than a salad.
The warm lobby bar serves specials that rotate daily, featuring delicious dishes like beef barbacoa and pork carnitas on Mondays and Q. Cumbers’ signature “famous pot roast” on Wednesday nights, according to its website.
They also have a fresh bakery and offer homemade soups. As shared on their site, you’ll love:
We’re family owned, Minnesota grown, and we love taking care of our guests – whether they’re locals or visitors.
Way to make Minnesota proud, and I don’t know about you, but I’m already planning my visit to the buffet! What do you think? Is it our best in Minnesota? Sounds like they legitimately deserve to be on the list, but I’m curious, what are some of your favorite buffets in Minnesota that a local or visitor should try?
