Stopped in here a few times while visiting Winona. This is a nice clean store, nothing overly fancy but good food and coffee.

Best of many Coffee Shops in Winona. Ranks in the top three in the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Intelligent and professiona staff. Superb food & drink. Cool clientele. Historic neighborhood-whorehouses & saloons.

This place has great and healthy options for breakfast and lunch. I had the quiche in the morning then returned for a great kale and sweet potato salad. I would recommend if you like local, delicious food.

The soup and 1/2 sandwich combo is a good, convenient lunch available in downtown Winona. The Blue Heron is one of the best lunch places in downtown Winona.
