They told me it would be 15 minutes so I sat down inside and waited 40 before i walked up to counter. Pretty good sandwich though

Great! Family placed a takeout order online for a bunch of The Sandy, a breakfast sandwich. It was ready promptly. So big it was our brunch. Great size, taste and ingredients. Not a speck left by anyone. The rest of their menu is intriguing.

Eat here on our way thru Grand Forks every year. As usual friendly staff and good food. I say the same thing every year, congratulations to staff and owners, it’s not easy to maintain consistent high quality.

Although the food is fresh and good, the kitchen staff need to rethink how they do things, as I watched them take forever to make the dishes. One woman seemed to focus only on toasting bread, another was working on eggs, etc.

We really enjoyed the food every dish we ordered was unique and tasty. The kids liked the classic lemonade smoothie. We got baked goods for the road to have for dessert

The Wooden Spoon Bistro is one of the few cafes that open at 8:00a. Had the The Sandy breakfast sandwich and it was more than I could eat. Next time I would get the Sandy Mini which is half a sandwich. The bread was soft...and fresh and the layers delicious. Definitely a good breakfast spot.More

I have eaten here often when its warm enough to dine outside. They use fresh ingredients to produce very innovative delicious dishes.

A wonderful spot with a great menu, friendly staff and cool decor. The food was amazing, I shared 2 dishes with a friend, each unique and flavourful. I loved the atmosphere. I will go back every chance I get.
