    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Local Eating with the Family

We all know the best part of parents college visits is getting to put away the ramen noodles for a week and enjoy some homemade food grandma sent or get off campus for a nice dinner with the rents’. Next time your parents are up for the weekend, check out these great local restaurants.


For breakfast head on over to Bridgeman’s on 2202 Mountain Shadow Dr. Though this is not an exclusively Duluth restaurant, the service there will make you feel right at home and the food will leave you raving. Their breakfast menu is my favorite part of the restaurant, but most would argue it’s their homemade ice cream and malts.
My pick: Breakfast Sandwich. Honey-pit ham, egg & American cheese on a grilled ciabatta, served with hashbrowns or fruit. Also available on a Gluten Free bun!

One of the best places in Duluth to go for lunch is the Duluth Grill on the corner of I-35 & 27th Avenue West. This restaurant’s main appeal is their organic veggies and one-of-a-kind atmosphere. From homemade ketchup to fresh fish, vegan entrees to grass-fed beef burgers, Duluth Grill has something for everyone. After the meal, you can purchase your very own Duluth Grill Cookbook and recreate your favorite recipes at home. This local gem was even featured on Food Network!
My pick: B.L.T. Thick-cut Jones Farm cherrywood smoked bacon, lettuce, Bay Produce tomatoes and mayo on toasted multi-grain.

A Duluth visit would not be complete without stopping by the famous Grandma’s Saloon and Grill for a nice dinner at one of their two Duluth locations, 2202 Maple Grove Road near the mall and 522 Lake Avenue South in Canal Park. It’s hard to decide what to get at this restaurant, they are famous for their fish, and their pasta, and their burgers…pretty much everything actually.
My pick: A tie between the California Trike, a tricycle burger Served with fresh leaf lettuce and fresh tomato slices on a bun slathered with mayo, and the Penne from Heaven, Penne pasta blended with fresh basil, shaved garlic, cracked black pepper, crushed roma tomatoes, and imported parmesan.
