I absolutely love dining out. There are lots of tasty options in St. Cloud. While restaurants are taking a hit during the cornvirus pandemic, I actually found myself eating restaurant food more -- via takeout & delivery.

Part of the reason I ate more restaurant food was to help support local businesses who really appreciated the business during tough times, but the other part was that I found eating tasty, professionally prepared food was comforting (and delicious).
