Tillie's Farmhouse is a casual country-style restaurant; owned and operated by Kari Grittner and son Tom Grittner.

Named after her Grandma Mathilda, Tillie's Farmhouse serves farmhouse favorites and recipes influenced by Kari's family roots in Denmark, Sweden, and even Hugo MN. Tillie's Farmhouse offers seasonal cuisine by partnering with local farmers and offers craft beer and wine selections to go with your meal. Tillie's is a neighborhood favorite where friends and family can enjoy a meal together at the farmhouse table.

Tillie's Farmhouse purchased Trotter's Cafe in 2017.

Local & Responsible: Whenever possible, we source locally and with integrity. Our food is prepared in the farmhouse tradition-simple, fresh, wholesome, and from scratch.

Our Farmers: We know our farmers. At Tillie's we use the highest quality local and sustainable ingredients. We never use additives or preservatives for flavor. We are committed to providing you with the best and freshest products possible.

From Scratch: We make it here "from scratch" every day - stocks for our soups, sauces, salad dressings, ketchup, pickles, and baked goods.
