'Mise en Place' ordering has been paused while we focused our efforts on reopening the New Scenic Café for full-service dining, and making sure we can provide a great experience to our diners.

We are once again offering 'Mise en Place' pickup orders on the days leading up to Thanksgiving! Order now for pickup on Monday 11/22, Tuesday 11/23, or Wednesday 11/24!

After the week of Thanksgiving, beginning on Wednesday, December 1st, 'Mise en Place' orders will be regularly available for pickup every Wednesday through Sunday, from 12-8pm.



The New Scenic Cafe has temporarily closed due to staff illness. During this time, we will be unable to accept Mise en Place Marketplace orders.

We will reopen on Friday, January 14th.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Mise en Place Marketplace

Home Meal Kits


Fresh Bakery Fare


Deli & Pantry Goods

Duluth, Minnesota


In April 2020, with New Scenic Café shut down due to the Covid pandemic, ‘Mise en Place Marketplace’ launched to offer quality meal kits and other foods for our customers to enjoy at home. Over 2 years later, New Scenic Café is once again open for full service dining, and we are grateful for the space to feel “alive” with guests coming and going.

With a busy summer in front of us, ‘Mise en Place Marketplace’ is faced with a difficult reality. We simply do not have the staff we need to continue to operate effectively.

So for now, we are ceasing all of our online ordering. Many of the bakery, deli, and pantry goods we have offered will remain available to purchase in person at New Scenic Café.

At times, we may have online offerings for holidays and special occasions, and we may reopen more fully somewhere down the road. In the meantime, we’re focusing our efforts on making sure we’re providing the best service and food we can at New Scenic Café. Please join us!

Food that fits into the fullness of your life....

Mise en Place Marketplace offers meal kits, fresh bakery fare, and other handcrafted goods available to take home from the New Scenic Café in Duluth, Minnesota! Our food is locally made and readied with care to bring a taste of our table home to yours.

"Mise en place" is a french term meaning "everything in its place." In the kitchen, it is used as a measure of readiness. A cook will set their mise en place by preparing all ingredients and gathering all the tools she’ll need for a busy, Saturday dinner service. The dynamic thinking and organization of mise en place is the measure of a good cook—never under-prepared, never over-prepped.

For us, at Mise en Place Marketplace, the key is this balance, what the Swedish might call "lagom"—not too little and not too much. In the flurry of a busy service, there is no space for excess and no time for not enough. It is a balance we strike. We’re always aiming for just right: a meal that fills us up without weighing us down, a tomato perfectly in season, a duck breast 20 seconds shy of medium-rare.

In our meal kits, in our marketplace, we aim to be ready with precisely what’s needed. Our meal kits arrive with all things in their place, prepped and ready for your kitchen. Our virtual marketplace shelves are stocked with the kind of handcrafted food that we used to find in open-air markets, the neighborhood deli, at the bakery round the corner. It is the kind of food that brightens the table and reminds us of home.

We won’t have everything available all the time, but what we have will be right: seasonally responsive, thoughtfully sourced, and designed with care to fit into the fullness of your life.
