The North Shore comes to the Mall of America

In the latest business news:

MOA adds Betty’s Pies to menu. Betty’s Pies, a popular tourist destination at Two Harbors along the north shore of Lake Superior, plans to open a 4,300-square-foot pie, pastry and restaurant shop at the Mall of America. The approximately $1 million restaurant is scheduled to open in February, said Marti Sieber, co-owner of Betty’s Pies with business partner Carl Ehlenz.

Okay, what's next? Will Lake Superior Trading Post open a moccasin-and-book store in Southdale? Will the Vanilla Bean start serving their omelets from a food cart on Nicollet Mall?

I'm embarrassed to say I've never been to the Vanilla Bean and never even noticed it. This is a example of rushing up the Northshore to the destination and missing out on something good for lunch. Of course we have been to the Lemon Wolf,Rustic Inn, Cove Point and Betty's pies! But how many of us just blow right thru good ole' Two Harbors? I went down to Agate Bay once too. Once....sad! I shall time our next journey for lunch at the Vanilla Bean!
