Over the weekend we made a pitstop in Cannon Falls, and I'm so happy that we did! We found the most amazing restaurant. I hidden gem in the small town of Cannon Falls. Not only was it super adorable, welcoming and unique, but they had some of the best pizza I've ever had! It's called Artisan Plaza.

Anytime there is a bbq chicken pizza on the menu, I'm a happy girl. When they add their own unique spin to it to spice it up, I'm even happier. They serve up Artisan brick-oven pizza in many amazing flavors. I had the Byllesby. It was topped with cranberry BBQ (OMG), fresh mozzarella, chicken, red onion, and bleu cheese. Even my husband who's not huge into my style of pizza was stealing slices.

I also adore that they serve local beer, Minnesota wine AND did I mention delicious fresh fried Minnesota cheese curds? Artisan Plaza isn't just a restaurant though. They are a legit butcher and cheese shop. When we first arrived, we were greeted with a huge welcome smile and free samples - hummus, beer, and wine. I was immediately in love.

But wait, there's more! I'm obsessed with the wine barrel look. Their whole patio was filled with beautiful wine barrel pub tables. They even have a live music stage. Fun fact, the lead singer of Lost Highway, Jesse Charles owns a landscaping company. He was the brains behind this magnificent patio. I would be willing to bet that he will make an appearance on that stage many times over the next few months.
