I had a really big food and wine weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. Yesterday my husband and I met friends for a long and relaxing brunch at Jimmy's Food and Cocktails at 1000 Red Circle Drive in Minnetonka, Mn. 55343. 952-224-5858.

Enjoying brunch on a late Sunday morning after Mass has become one of my favorite things to do. Not only is it relaxing and a great way to connect with friends, but it usually means I don't have to cook a big dinner. This does not happen often though as I usually have my family together on Sunday evenings.

I had not been out to Jimmy's in about 2 years and never for brunch, the dining room is rich and handsome, bright and feels very up-scale and casual. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. They serve the usual menu of eggs, pancakes, waffles and a large assortment of eggs Benedict. Among them a smoked salmon, California and crab, I chose the crab eggs Benedict.

My choice was made with a lump crab cake and nicely poached egg, the Hollandaise sauce was good, there just should have been more. The breakfasts are served with delicious looking cheddar breakfast potatoes, but I opted for more fruit as I am watching my calories and I thought the eggs Benedict had enough calories for one meal.

All in all it was a great experience. You might want to consider Jimmy's for Valentine's Day since it falls on a Sunday this year.

Hope you like Jimmy's too.

Buon appetito,
