235 6th St E, St Paul, MN 55101, USA
One of my favorite cocktails: Enter The Dragon - a margarita with passion fruit juice, cava, muddled hot peppers ... Yum! You can find it at Barrio. And there are pretty good eats at this place, too. Find it in Saint Paul by the lovely Mears Park,...
4021 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55406, USA
Three Minneapolis specialty spots—Dogwood Coffee, Rustica Bakery and Victory 44 restaurant—have teamed up to create a 'trifecta' of tastiness. The minimalist, modern restaurant-meets-coffeehouse crafts locally roasted coffee from Dogwood, serves...
4552 Grand Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419, USA
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...
3520 W 70th St, Edina, MN 55435, USA
Date-and-drinks destination, client-meeting enclave, and girls'-night hotspot: Crave is the Edina go-to when you want to impress. The menus are eclectic, ranging from brick-oven flatbreads to steaks to Minnesota walleye. It’s also the top option...
211 7th St W, St Paul, MN 55102, USA
The brand new pasticceria at Cossetta's is gorgeous! Italian marble, long case full of beautiful sweets and some savories, espresso bar, cordials, grappa and liquors, and a feeling you have been transported across the ocean. Don't miss it next...
308 E Prince St, St Paul, MN 55101, USA
Black Dog Cafe is the cultural epicenter of Lowertown in Saint Paul. Kudos to this wonderful place for ambitious programming in music and the arts. Some of the most respected twin cities musicians stop by regularly to play gigs. Music ranges from...
36 7th St W, St Paul, MN 55102, USA
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...
HIGHLAND PARK, 704 Cleveland Ave S, St Paul, MN 55116, USA
Another one of my favorite neighborhood regular stops. Wood burning oven bakes/blisters the pizza in 90 secs! Out of it also comes the yummiest rosemary focaccia which is served with the delish Punch salad. Order a carafe of chianti and the bread...
850 Grand Ave, St Paul, MN 55105, USA
Cafe Latte has been a neighborhood and town favorite for many years. Family-owned, consistent top quality food (soups are always amazing), nice vibe, amazing desserts. Hard to choose a favorite one, but the Turtle Cake, German Chocolate Cake, or...
290 5th St E, St Paul, MN 55101, USA
We have always loved our Saint Paul Farmer's Market, and it looks like it's someone else's favorite, too! It was voted one of the best markets in the US in July 2013 by Zagat. Why do we love it? I think it's because of the cozy size (3 isles in a...
1668 Grand Ave, St Paul, MN 55105, USA
The chalkboard menu is pretty hefty; as in, there is A LOT to choose from! So, ponder on the side before standing in line to order. My favorites are the Shish Breakfast ($8.95) and the lamb burger ($8.95 with choice of salad or fries). The burger...
