Lynn Gordon, founder of the French Meadow Bakery & Cafe and an early adopter of sustainable eating, recently expanded into the organic, fair-trade coffee business. And after collaborating with European Roasterie to create the People's Organic Coffee brand, she opened a café and wine bar of the same name in Edina's Galleria shopping center. The cafe's counter-service setup and modest pricing echo Meadow's casual vibe, but the environment feels more sophisticated with aesthetic details such as artist-designed vessels and a colorful, hand-cut tile bar. People's is a versatile space, accommodating everything from an early morning takeout scone with coffee or tea; shopping-break lunch, or late night dessert and glass of wine. It's also an easy place to stick with your diet--the mostly egg-white "zone" omelet, for starters--or blow it, with a grass-fed-beef cheeseburger or fabulous tumbler of raspberry panna cotta. Cheers to a civilized alternative to the typical shopping mall's food-court offerings.
