The taste was good. Very light brunch crowd. For two with two breakfast items (eggs Benedict and eggs with hash) and two juices with tips was $40. Slightly pricy.

We visit HoDo annually when I see my extended family in Fargo. When I went to school at MSU, the HoDo was a dive hotel. Some folks bought it and re-made the ground floor into a beautiful restaurant. The historic outer facade is preserved, but...More
