Gustaf’s Eatery

Where History and Wholesome Food Find Good Company

Whether Lindström is your destination or you’re on the way to work or the lake, Gustaf’s Eatery (a.k.a. Gustaf’s on Main) is your best place to eat. Enjoy deliciously healthy food for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Our farm-to-table fresh food will satisfy your appetite, and your taste buds! Stop by our easy-to-find restaurant for food to go, or sit down and enjoy the quaint and quiet setting of our Victorian-style red brick house on the east edge of Lindstrom. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see the classic Swedish coffeepot water tower just down the street from Gustaf’s Eatery. We are right on U.S. Hwy. 8, northeast of St. Paul/Minneapolis.

Gustaf’s Eatery is the perfect destination for a quick morning bite, casual midday meal, Scandinavian dessert, or premium ice cream! (And on select evenings, enjoy an authentic Swedish meatball dinner. Follow us on Facebook to learn more.) We strive to keep our food organic, farm-to-table, and locally sourced. Check out our menu, and read the story behind the historic building that houses our restaurant. Come and meet the locals who’ve already made Lindstrom’s Gustaf’s Eatery their favorite. Our front porch is the perfect place to catch up with old friends, or make new ones!

Drop in and discover a peaceful spot to gather, relax, and enjoy good food, decadent ice cream, or the dessert of the day. All menu items are available for take-out (call ahead to order for pick up), and please ask about our gluten-free options. The Gustaf’s kitchen is open seven days a week, with seasonally adjusted hours.

As you follow Hwy. 8 through Chisago City and Lindstrom, stop by Gustaf’s Eatery, where history and wholesome food find good company. You betcha’.
