Comfort food cravings hit hard once winter rolls around. Cafe Latté, a St. Paul institution since 1984, figured this out a long time ago. The cafeteria-style restaurant serves a rotating selection of salads, soups, and desserts, with a chosen few that remain on the menu year-round. Consider them our Minnesota Comfort Food Classics, and Chicken Salsa Chili the all-star. It's like the one-pot dinner your mom made, only better — tomato-based and heavy on the meat, but kicked up a notch with extra jalapeño and a shot of lime. After all these years, the comfort comes in its consistent quality. It's just spicy enough to warm you up, but not infernal. When you're asked, "Would you like toppings on that?" get extra grated cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, chopped red onion, and a side of tortilla chips. And don't forget to pick out a freshly baked roll.
