You really do want to eat at a food co-op! Especially, if it’s the Wedge Table. The Wedge Co-op comes to Eat Street with a grocery store/deli combination. The Eat Street Wedge Minneapolis opened about 2015 and enjoys significant success, much like its “parent” grocery co-op on Lyndale Avenue.
The Wedge Co-op started nearly 50 years ago with the store on Lyndale Avenue. In 2017, The Wedge consolidated with the Linden Hills Co-op and formed a strong cooperative organization. Members own the organization and profits are invested in the business or returned to owners as dividends. Here is a link to The Wedge organization. Most importantly, the entire organization provides many organic products.
Eat Street Wedge Table
Most noteworthy, the store/deli has been successfully open since about 2015. People who live and/or work here make up much of the restaurant business. Of course, there are visitors from other areas but this seems to focus on local traffic. Again, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) is just a couple of blocks away.
And, the Wedge Table meeting room can be rented for community purposes. The Wedge Table eating area provides good off-site work and informal meeting location as well. Additionally, the Wedge Table, like many Eat Street businesses is environmentally friendly.
More Wedge Table Information
To demonstrate, the Wedge Table has a menu for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. With 7 AM to 10 PM hours, all meals and snacks are available.
The Wedge Table creates a salad bar daily as well. No picture, because if you’ve seen one salad bar, you’ve seen them all! As I watched them prepare it and the customers eat, it looked very good! I “only” had a smoothie to save room for another restaurant’s food. It was a strawberry smoothie, so really hit the spot. That was my plan, but I should have eaten here.
Of course, I was drooling over the great looking desserts! Consequently, the Wedge Table also generates a steady stream of the “coffee and dessert” crowd in the afternoon. And here is a link to the introductory post regarding Eat Street.
Classic Rock Recollection
“Blowin’ in the Wind” by Bob Dylan
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, ‘n’ how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
Written by: Bob Dylan
So, you ask, what does Blowin’ in the Wind have to do with the Eat Street Wedge Minneapolis? On another post, I told you there would be some obscure rock song connections! Well, here’s another one. Surprisingly, Bob Dylan agreed to have his song, Blowin’ in the Wind, used for advertising by a British co-op. (I know, many of you will say “It’s a folk song”, but, hey, it’s Bob Dylan! To clarify, The Co-operative Group has 4,200 locations in food retail and wholesale, financial services, insurance services, and legal services! So, There!
