A friend of mine told me about a quaint little restaurant in Cannon Falls called “The Old Market Deli.” A couple weeks ago Jeff, Gracie and I decided to take a little road trip and have lunch there. It turned out to be a wonderful little place!
I love the cute little store front. Flowers overflowing from the window boxes.

There is a swan pond in Minnieska park, which I thought was adorable
We attended a fantastic wine tasting at the Cannon River Winery. This wine tasting was different than many others we have experienced. We sat at a bistro table and were given the extensive wine list. We tried everything on the list for $5 a piece! The hostess poured two wines at a time and with each sampling described each wine in great detail. This was, by far, the greatest value we have ever encountered at a wine tasting.
While we sipped wine we were serenaded by the wonderful singing and guitar music of Duke Zecco.

What we had:
Jeff~Mediterranean Sandwich: artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, balsamic greens and goat cheese on ciabatta bread.
Melissa~ Smoked Turkey Sandwich: smoked turkey, cheddar, avocado, roasted red pepper, sprouts and garlic mayo on multi grain bread. (It was very good paired with the creamy artichoke soup!)
Gracie~classic PB&J on sourdough.
We all had the YUMMY 7 layer bars for dessert
The Old Market Deli has a fantastic wine and beer list as well! The food is unique, delicious, and there are so many choices!
What a fantastic day. I highly recommend Cannon Falls for your next little road trip!
