We like to stop in when we visit Minneapolis. The food is local and delicious, the coffee is great, and the decor/vibe can't be beat. It's also in a great location; it's across from one of our fav record stores.

Wonderful atmosphere, service tops, concept is very unusual but fun to eat in. Walking around the "Eat Street" area is great. So many cultures.would recommend to anyone for a breakfast & lunch concept restaurant with a twist.

Kitchen is so slow, it took more than 45min for eggs and sausage, plus the place was full with flies... I wouldn't call it bad waitress but bad overall!
