Our mission

At The Exchange Food & Drink we are dedicated to providing a wonderful dining experience through great food, drinks and service.

We also believe it is crucial to be a great place to work. The ownership and management team work hard to provide a warm, respectful and fun environment for our employees.


Our Philosophy

We believe in offering fresh, made-from-scratch food from the finest ingredients possible in a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere.

We strive to provide warm, friendly and knowledgeable service to all of our guests. Whenever possible we source products from local farms such as Wild Acres Game Farm, Fox Farms and Midwest Salad.


Our Space

We took over our location in the Spring of 2014 and spent several months transforming the location into something that was not previously present in the area.

Working with local designers and artists, as well as the New Brighton Historical Society, we have created a casual, comfortable dining room and bar for our guests.
