Two weeks ago I was invited to a VIP event to preview Cafe Zupas, a new restaurant opening in Woodbury. I could bring a guest, so I called up my Aunt Kathy who lives and works in Woodbury. She actually works just down the road from their location, so it was perfect!
|If you’ve been in the Mountain West, you’ve likely heard of Cafe Zupas. They’re now expanding to the Midwest, and Minnesota is the first state they’re opening in.|
Cafe Zupas makes all of their soups, spreads, and dressings fresh every day. I was able to watch them making their menu items through a large display window outside the kitchen: chopping, sauteing, and blending like crazy. Nothing says made fresh and made-to-order like that!

|I was impressed at how quickly they’re able to make an order. I don’t know about you, but I don’t eat out often, but when I do I’m looking for something really quick, fresh, and healthy – exactly this!|
|I ordered the Turkey Bacon Avacado sandwich, Garden Chowder soup, Strawberry Harvest Chicken salad with the Chocolate Layer cake as a dessert.|
|I was so excited to be able to invite my aunt to enjoy the event and lunch with me! We’ve decided to schedule a monthly lunch or dinner together to catch up and visit. Cafe Zupas is right near her work so I think we’ll be eating there often!|
|I won a giveaway for my fast social media fingers!|
|I was so excited to try the layered cake that I dove in before I remembered to take a picture. Oops. Yes, it is as good as it looks.|
|My aunt’s Salted Carmel Creme Brulee. I think I enjoyed it over my chocolate layer cake? That surprised me, usually nothing tops a chocolate dessert for me! I’m excited to try their chocolate Creme Brulee next time… mmm…|
