Sometimes, I think if I could just find a diner like Mickey’s that has the same atmosphere but more space, out of the Twin Cities, oh! and that has mismatch salt shakers, I would be in heaven. Well ladies and gentlemen, I found that place. Since it just celebrated its anniversary, it seemed fitting to cross it off the #mnbucketlist. The Bent Spoon Bistro right off of Cloquet Avenue is the epitome of diner paradise meets mom-and-pop, cheap, family-style. The staff, you ask? Throw in a little bit of sarcastic humor and you’re there. I’m a huge fan of this place. If you’re in Duluth and want to take a side trip, I highly recommend hanging out there.
