It's true. The Turtle Bread in the Minneapolis skyway system (in One Financial Plaza) is closing as of this Friday. Sure, breathe easy all you Linden Hills and Longfellow folk, but for those of us haunting the habitrail in search of lunchtime soup and a great hunk of bread, woe be us.
From what the kids behind the counter tell me, the lease was up for renewal but TB didn't want to re-sign for the ten year deal. So as of Friday, no more tomato basil and quiche for you.
Truth be told, I was not a fan of eating in the space, the green walls and 80's furniture leave something to be desired. I'm hoping against all hope that something fresh (read: not greasy orange chicken) comes in.
A little star of hope: while I was there today I DID cross paths with a popular foodtrucker scoping the space out .... time will tell.
