If you don't know already, The Explore All 50 crew loves Perkins. It's just all around, no frills good food with something to satisfy every taste. Wherever we are and we're at a loss about the local fare, and everyone is too tired and hungry to be experimental, we see if there is a local Perkins. Such was the case in Minneapolis. After a long day of driving and some sketchy food in Iowa, we needed a place we could count on without a huge wait. Wandering around the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Center, I was inspired by the sculpture of the cherry on the spoon. Immediately the light bulb went off in my head...What are we doing for dinner??? Got to find a Perkins. Thank G-d we did, right in Minneapolis where we got service with a smile, delicious food, and mom's favorite cherry pie.
