Think even MORE shopping, food and fun (heck yeah to the indoor trampoline park)! Soak up the best Eagan has to offer and we can guarantee you’ll want to come back every holiday season from now on.
You’re guaranteed a warm welcome and a comforting tasty meal at this classic 50s restaurant lined with checkered decor and fun music playing in the background. Ze’s name may not be at the top of alphabet, but everything about this joint is A+! Since opening back in 2012, Ze’s has been a go-to for having one of the best breakfasts in town plus it’s served all day! Pancakes, waffles, eggs, biscuits and gravy, you name it and Ze’s has it on their menu. Moody and Zeze Arafa, owners of this hot spot, are also known for their Mediterranean spin on classics such as the Gyro Omelet with delicious lamb cooked right in or the Mediterranean Kebabs served with chicken and sirloin. You can’t forget about their homemade baklava and other tasty sweets like velvety milkshakes and warm coffee drinks. With all this deliciousness, you’ll be satisfied and ready to burn off some energy (and maybe a few calories) at your next stop!
After a filling breakfast, it’s time to get the wiggles out and act like a kid, whether you’re 40 or 4! Choose from an outrageous variety of activities like the ol’ standard of trampoline jumping, dodgeball, rock climbing, ninja obstacle course and slam dunk basketball. This place is the best way to burn energy and have a blast while doing it. Pro tip for adults: Bald Man Brewing is just a hop, skip and JUMP away!
It’s a neverending cycle of fun activities and eating delicious food here in Eagan so let’s hope you jump-started your appetite in to full gear for lunch at this very popular establishment. Ansari’s has been offering authentic Mediterranean cuisine with a warm, family friendly environment for decades. It’s a must for lunch, because of the amazing lunch buffet offering endless amounts of falafel, gyros, hummus, tabbouleh and much more. We highly recommend after stuffing your face to take a piece or two of tiramisu back to your hotel for later on 🙂
Now it’s time to get your shop on to the fullest! Twin Cities Premium Outlets or as we like to call it, TCPO, is largest outlet mall in the Upper Midwest featuring over 100 unique stores including Coach, Nike Factory Store, Michael Kors and so much more. How can you go wrong with discounted shopping, better yet tax FREE shopping in a beautiful setting? Enjoy covered walkways if the weather isn’t the most ideal and then stop in to Market Hall for a snack in between your major purchases, because we know you’re going to have plenty. The shopportunities are endless at TCPO and by the end of this adventure, you should have everything checked off your list!
Let’s cap off your vacay with some delicious Italian food at Andiamo Italian Ristorante! This popular spot is all about fresh ingredients, authentic dishes and a relaxing atmosphere that will make you feel like you’re sitting in a gondola along the canals of Venice. Start with their fresh breadsticks that come out piping hot with just a hint of garlic and then move on to an array of delicious entrees including Chicken Andiamo that is laying in a bed of lemon butter and roasted vegetables with fresh artichokes and prosciutto for that perfect saltiness. If pasta is your ultimate go-to when you’re craving Italian, you won’t be disappointed with 15 different pasta dishes that may be hard to choose between. The Penne Al Forno is one favorite that contains sausage, pepperoni and mushrooms with Andiamo’s delicious red sauce atop the cylinder shaped pasta noodles. Grilled Mahi Mahi, Chianti Short Ribs and Scallops with Crab and Pea Risotto for the elevated palette are also available and served fresh every day. While classic music plays in the background and wine is being poured, get whisked away to an Italian paradise at Andiamo. Don’t forget the spumoni or tiramisu for dessert!
