Have one in mind? I'd love a Panera, personally.

A great place to have a wonderful breakfast! There's no place, except Denny's in Burnsville, to eat omelets, fresh baked rolls or just plain eggs, great toast And pancakes! A place where the waiters come to the table and give you a verbal menu on what's great that day. PLEASE! Isn't there someone who still knows how to cook great, real food!? Nancy Larson

How about a secure, staffed play-place to drop the toddlers and kids for an hour while you were shopping. I, personally, would pay at least 4 bucks for one kid and 6 bucks for 2, for 75 minutes of kid free shopping. I would even pay an extra dollar a kid if I went over the 75 min. and I'm cheap.

Andy, that's a neat idea! Is there anything like that at all right now? Other cities or anything?

I think there is still one ClubKid left in Minnetonka. I believe that the company had a few, not sure why they closed. Maybe not enough of a demand?
