4.0 out of 5.0 stars

Cathedral Hill is one of my favorite restaurant areas in St. Paul.  How about an iconic place that opened its doors in 1975 with ties back to the turn of the century?  It’s a beautiful vintage building inside and out.  Today it might be well known for its romantic dining, comfortable lounge and incredible outdoor patio.  What it might not be known for is its burger.  Its very good burger!

I would like to think I’m pretty up on where the good burgers are in the Twin Cities and where I have yet to visit, but I had no information good or bad about this burger.  If you are in the same boat as I was, I’m going to give you some good.

The beef is very good.  It has that charbroiled feel to it.  It was juicy and perfectly cooked.  The popular Gruyere cheese covers the patty.  Cremini mushrooms give it a little earthy taste.  Caramelized onions go well with the mushrooms.  They have a very good roasted garlic-lemon aioli that kicks this up a little bit.  A little arugula is placed in the delicious aioli on the bottom bun.  The bun is a soft sesame seed, toasted and good.

I really liked this burger!  It’s definitely on my burger radar now!

French Fries – Good.

Molten Cake – Good.
