Every few weeks I head over to Brainerd to shop, etc and always try to stop at The Shante for great food and drinks. I particularly enjoy the 210 Turtle Mocha and Italian Creme Sodas for beverages and for sandwiches my favorites are the Pretzel Bacon Breakfast Sandwich (highly addictive) and the Roast Beef and Cheddar (which is better than I've had anywhere else ever). The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxing, the staff is friendly and Anna is just great. I keep begging her to open up The Shante II in my hometown but to no avail. I'll keep hoping though!
