We at Mickey’s strive to provide delicious, homemade, wholesome and economical meals. We steam and shred our own hash browns from the whole raw potato. Our meat is delivered fresh from a local butcher. Our grade AA extra large eggs come fresh from a local family farm and we cook them only in real butter. Our bread and buns arrive fresh daily from a local St. Paul bakery. Our coffee is ground fresh and roasted locally.
