Mickey's is an old-school, rail car-style, 24-hr diner located in downtown Saint Paul. It's a famous landmark and serves up the best greasy spoon food in the area. The staff is notoriously gruff but they can also be pretty sweet and cook good food quickly, no matter the time of day.
It's great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, midnight snack, or to soak up booze after the bars close. The small diner is almost always full, or at least buzzing with activity, so don't expect to hold down a booth with just a cup of coffee. There is a small parking lot adjacent that's free for customers.
