A tartine (open-faced sandwich) and orange juice at this bakery and cafe will cost you $11.86, but this was no ordinary sandwich. It was a killer slice of miche (the right blend of crispiness and chewiness) topped with roasted ham and gruyère, and...

What’s not to like about a sweets shop called “Sugar Sugar Candy” ? This little spot is artfully and whimsically decorated: The 45 rpm “Sugar, Sugar” by the Archies is framed in a shadowbox on one wall while antique Parisian chocolate boxes adorn...

I recently had the Ginger Yip at Eat Street Social, and it left me wanting more. The bartender hand-mixed this soda fountain drink and made it the same way you would a cocktail, carefully measuring the ginger syrup, cream, and seltzer. The end...

I’ll definitely go back for the roasted potatoes, smoked salmon, olive oil cake and the eggs florentine (aka poached eggs topped with Hollandaise sauce)! Al Vento serves this “European-style buffet” on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m....

Tucked inside a sprawling floral and garden center in Minneapolis is a mini Europe—more specifically, a French café with blue-checkered tables. The Parisian-born owners offer an impressive selection of classics, from croissants to bouchée à la...

The Wisconsin border is about a two-hour drive away, but this is still cheese-loving territory. And Mozza Mia, a mozzarella bar, is light years away from your average deep-fried curd. Dip into some seriously divine burrata or order a sampling of...
4351 France Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55410, USA
Minneapolis and Edina are separated by a mere two-lane street, and even though France 44 Wine & Spirits falls on the Minneapolis side, Edina residents consider it their own. The exceptional selection of beer, wine, and spirits is highlighted...
219 N 2nd St #106, Minneapolis, MN 55401, USA
This ultra-stylish spot might just be one of the prettiest boutiques in the Twin Cities. The brand, built around design-centric office accessories, has made cube dwellers’ lives more chic in recent years, but its reach now extends beyond the...

In the last few years, Minnesota’s beer culture has come roaring to life, with breweries popping up like spring flowers (maybe hop flowers). Pig & Fiddle’s alluring wall of taps is packed with brews produced in-state, making it easy to take a...

I can't tell you clearly how to get to Victor's 1959, but I assure you when you find it you'll be highly impressed. It's a small cafe, but the vibrant paint and rows of window box flowers will welcome your arrival (spring-fall of course). Grab a...
730 N Washington Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55401, USA
Borough’s atmosphere is as pleasant and thoughtful as its cuisine. The industrial interior has rustic accents like dangling lights covered in antique cheese graters. Their regularly changing menu features organic, locally grown and raised...

Marvel Bar is at the center of Minneapolis’s mixology scene, with bartender Pip Hanson literally chipping ice for each cocktail. Classic and creatively crafted cocktails are served in this speakeasy setting, behind a discreet purple door and...
112 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55414, USA
The dimly lit Nye's bar and restaurant is a step back in time, complete with red carpeting and dark wood paneling. There's live music most every day of the week, and the patrons haven't left since the 1960s (well, not literally). Polka with "The...
5555 Xerxes Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55410, USA
Nestled in a residential area of Edina, Cave Vin is a cozy yet elegant restaurant with a decidedly French flair. Francophiles, foodies, and the just-plain-hungry can rejoice. You'll find all the classics on the menu: pâté, escargot, lamb,...

The folks who own Wise Acre Eatery also own Tangletown Gardens, a farm of some 100 acres just outside Minneapolis. They proudly source 80 to 90 percent of the restaurant's food directly from their own farm. Even when I was there in the middle of...
65 SE Main St, Minneapolis, MN 55414, USA
Decorated with peacocks and named for a famed Irish playwright, this little Victorian cafe serves up a killer huevos rancheros with smoked gouda hash browns. In addition to the Mexican food with an Irish twist, The Wilde Roast has some good...
