Nisswa, Minnesota is my home away from home. As soon as the weather warms up, I start heading up to #CasaDeNisswa every few weeks for extended weekends to enjoy some peace and calm on Middle Cullen Lake. Situated 2.5 hours northwest of the Twin Cities, I wanted to share with you my favorite places to eat while you enjoy a weekend away at our quaint, little village.

Come for the Pizza, stay for the Stigl Grapefruit Beer. Bar none, the best pizza around for miles and miles. We always order the Kelly's Premium (all-meat) and the Feisty Pig, which is topped with Pulled Pork, Bourbon BBQ Sauce, Jalapeno and Pickles. Mark Loshko, the owner has a monopoly on the most delicious beer I've tasted in years, Stigl - a grapefruit beer that is so refreshing. He imports it from Europe and is the only source I know of.

Nisswa Mini Donuts
So tiny, yet it's been an institution for decades - made fresh on the spot and tossed in cinnamon sugar. Sure to be a delight for anyone. After all, who doesn't love deep-fried dough?
