Yesterday, I took the beautiful drive to Preston, MN to stop by the Sweet Stop & Sandwich Shoppe!
It was a beautiful day for a ride on the Harley, but I was planning on picking up a few pies & a sandwich, and wanted to have a cooler to transport them safely back home.
Now, if you’re going by bike for a visit, I suggest avoiding the County Rd. route as there’s a bunch of gravel & road construction. Try going the I-90 route.
I opted for the Reuben sandwich, and it was incredible! The rye bread was deliciously dark and soft, the corned beef sliced nice & thin so it didn’t all come sliding out onto my face as I ate it. I also enjoyed the slice of strawberry rhubarb pie when I got home. It was absolutely fantastic. The perfect combination of sweet & tart.
Brenda & Mike were extremely nice and even gave me a growler from Karst Brewing in Fountain, MN. They got me the “Edge of the Earth” oatmeal stout which I’ll be opening later this evening. And I’m definitely looking forward to a road trip up there for a visit.
After my time at the Sweet Stop, I walked a few doors down to Trout City brewing and checked out the place. It’s a really cool mom & pop coffee shop, restaurant & brewery with several of their own beers on tap and a few guest taps. Plus, a neat little beer hall and a quaint, but surprisingly large outdoor patio area.
Now, Niagara cave & Mystery cave are currently not open, but if they reopen later this year & you’re looking for a great lunch and a beer or two in the area, you should DEFINTIELY stop by the Sweet Stop & Sandwich Shoppe & Trout City Brewing!
