Klobuchar features Kay’s Kitchen at Minnesota Morning
U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar featured breakfast pastries from Kay’s Kitchen in St. Joseph’s at her weekly “Minnesota Morning” gathering. Klobuchar has visited Minnesota communities across the state and after tasting favorite local foods, she decided to showcase these Minnesota specialties at her weekly Thursday-morning coffee gatherings in her Washington, D.C. office.
“Kay’s Kitchen is one of many family-owned businesses we have across our state that support local economies and serve our communities,” Klobuchar said. “I was happy to bring their fresh homemade treats from St. Joseph to share with our guests at Minnesota Morning.”
Kay’s Kitchen was built in 1972 by Kay and “Dirk” Dierkhising with the goal of providing St. Joseph with a family diner, where they quickly became famous for their fresh pastries and ice cream cones. In 2009, Tanya (Dierkhising) Finken bought the diner and proudly continues the traditions of Kay and Dirk.
Klobuchar hosts “Minnesota Morning” every Thursday when the Senate is in session and invites all Minnesotans who are visiting the capital. Visitors can hear first-hand accounts of Klobuchar’s work in the Senate, mingle with fellow Minnesotans visiting Washington, meet the Senator’s staff and take photographs with the senator. To get more information on attending “Minnesota Morning,’’ visit Sen. Klobuchar’s website at klobuchar.senate.gov or call her office at 202-224-3244.
