"Brenda Langton and Margaret Stuart have assembled an appealing collection of recipes that promise to deliver abundant flavor. They make good use of some of the less common ingredients that can be found everywhere, and apply uncommon good sense to today’s health concerns."—Deborah Madison, author of The Greens Cookbook, The Savory Way, and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
"Brenda recalls that when she started cooking in a St. Paul restaurant in 1976, ‘healthful ingredients took precedence over flavor.’ Almost thirty years have passed, and the meals she serves now are healthful but uncompromised in taste. In this cafe, flavor prevails."—Jane and Michael Stern, Gourmet
"The authors’s instructions are straightforward, and virtually all the ingredients are readily available in city supermarkets."—Bloomsbury Review
"Her book offers favorite recipes from the restaurant, which features seafood and vegetarian cuisine."—Minneapolis Star Tribune
