Coming to The Watershed Cafe, you will taste simple comfort food intentionally prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. This sustainable restaurant offers a warm, friendly atmosphere with seasonal outdoor seating overlooking the St. Croix River Valley – a relaxing way to enjoy your dining experience. Nowhere else!

“When I come to the Watershed Cafe in Osceola I feel that I have truly come home to the home-cooking of the midwest that I remember. The ambiance is as welcoming and warm as the food is wholesome and delicious! Rest assured that when you visit the Watershed the hot chocolate (with real whipped cream, of course) will be the best you have tasted, the chili will be soul-satisfying, the pastries will make you feel loved – and the specials, though simple, will knock your socks off with perfect execution!”

– Georgi P, Customer of The Watershed Café

SINCE 2014

OUR STORY

The St. Croix River has been the heart of The Watershed Café since its start in 2014. Inspired by the vitality of the river valley and local flavors of small-scale farms, owners Rita, Steve and the Rasmuson family envisioned The Watershed Café as an inviting, laid-back place of community. As a local cornerstone, The Watershed Cafe is a gathering place for friends, family, neighbors, and people of all walks of life to enjoy intentionally-prepared, sustainably sourced meals.

Like an adventure on the St. Croix River, we hope your experience at the table is relaxing yet rejuvenating. Through shared moments with good food and good company, may we find ourselves more deeply connected to nature and to each other.
