nuff Opens on Johnson Street

Headshot of nuff restaurant owner, Gary Carlsonnuff Breakfast Soup Sandwich is the newest restaurant opening up on Johnson Street this fall. Owner and manager Gary Carlson has worked in the restaurant business for most of his adult life. He ran the River Oasis Café in Stillwater from 1989 to 2008. But according to Gary, “19 years is a long time.” He was ready for a change and wanted to own his own restaurant in the Twin Cities.

Gary moved to Minneapolis to work in an environment in which he would have a steady stream of business throughout the year instead of the seasonal business in Stillwater.

“I wanted 12 months of business to pay 12 months of bills,” he said.
