5 Clint McMahon writes, "This is a great little cafe/bar on the Gunflint Trail. It's everything you'd imagine a little side restaurant in the north woods of Minnesota to be. All though my chili was luke warm, the hot chocolate is some of the best I've ever had. Perfect little place to stop into after dog sledding at the Bearskin Lodge just down the Gunflint trail." This photo was taken on Feb. 17 using a Canon PowerShot G11.
