Cascade Lodge Restaurant (Lutsen, MN)

Quick take

Decent overall, but could use a little work in the frosting department.


If you drive north out of Minneapolis, you will eventually come to Duluth. If you continue, following Lake Superior’s North Shore, you will eventually come to Lutsen, which is one of the largest ski areas in the Midwest. Between the “mountains” and the lakeshore you’ll find the Cascade Lodge and its associated restaurant.

In the summer, the lodge is full of hikers and motorcyclists. In the winter, skiers and snowmobilers roam the halls. At all times of the year, there are cinnamon rolls.

I was in the area for a wedding, and when I stopped for breakfast at the Cascade Lodge Restaurant, I noticed that cinnamon rolls were on the menu. Naturally, I indulged.

The flavor of the roll itself was nicely balanced, but the icing-style frosting was rather mundane. Since the roll bread was wide, flat, and slightly flaky, the choice of icing rather than buttercream made sense. Still, the icing was more monotone than I would have liked. Yes, I know that icing is primarily sugar, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have some zing to it. The good news is that there weren’t off flavors in the icing, so it was a lot better than, say, the terrible icing that is in Pillsbury tube “cinnamon rolls”.

The bread was slightly on the tough side, but I’m not going to ding the roll for that, as I actually got the pastry to go and ate it later in the day. (The omelet I had for breakfast there was filling enough to make me rethink my plan to have the roll as desert.)

It was a decent cinnamon roll, just not spectacular. 7/10

  5. You’d have to fall back on the font editor of your preferred program. Although it’s not as bulky, downloading the program does not include text wrapping function and has no kind of signup area where you can pay for extra licenses. One small flaw is it only shows samples of the fonts, with no option to modify the text actually. But this tool may help to pick the right font to show off your projects to boss, customers and your fellow users. As a friendly promotion

    I have used many password generators but found them pretty weak. Now I need a working one. So, I am wondering if y’all can check how their algorithm works.

    I am pretty sure I will never need a strong password generator – for that I can make my own.
