  • As if the relationship between cops and the pastries they eat wasn't stereotyped enough, it'd take a detective to find out about the insane donuts now being churned out by NE's Surdyk's Liquor.
  • Try the liquor. It's fantastic.
  • go there for lunch, have a MinneApple Melt they're awesome!
  • Try the stinky cheese.
  • Voted Best Delicatessen by City Pages in 2012! The small and stocked deli has you covered for hors d'oeuvres, feeding your family a meal, and picnics. The staff is very knowledgeable, as well!
  • Plan-ahead to swing by for a tasting to find a new favorite amaro or liquor you haven't yet tried. Sandwiches in the cheese shop are to die for, and don't forget a Palmier cookie when checking out!!!
  • They carry bubbly sidre from Northern France!
  • Best Carrot Cake.
  • Framboise lambic, ftw.
  • Cheese selection looks amazing and so many wine here. Big plus when I saw my state's beers.
  • Cory the supervisor in the cheese shop is very helpful for first timers.
  • If you like a nutty and mild cheese, pick up some manchego. It's perfect.
  • I only buy wine at Surdyks, and if you go during one of their tastings you will leave a littler happier :) Just be prepared to deal with an always-insanely-full parking lot...
  • Surdyks doesn't take American Express. You know who else didn't take American Express? The Nazis.
  • apparently the policy is to only hire cashiers who have no smile muscles
  • Get yourself some vodka, grenadine, and Baileys. In a shot glass, pour 2/3 thirds vodka, a little grenadine, then a little Baileys. What you have is a tasty Bloody Brain!
  • Pick up a Knudsen's Caramel.
  • They have the best grilled sandwiches in the Twin Cities! Try the Mt. Vernon: Smoked turkey, sweet & hot cherry-pepper jelly, cheddar, and onion on sourdough bread.
  • Awesome cheese selection and good prices on liquor. Only downside is they don't take Amex
  • Immediately ask where things are (wines, etc.) to EXPEDITE your shopping experience. You'll kill an hour in here otherwise, & spend 2x -3x what you intended
