Group of 4, plus 2 year old. They accommodated us immediately, a great welcome. Enthusiastic Ryan could tell it was our first visit. He explained the specials and menu in detail. The Food was excellent, the service superior. My granddaughter was so excited about home-made chocolate milk, and Mickey pancakes.

We came for a late Saturday brunch (around 1:30) and had to wait only 20 minutes. Better yet, the host offered all of us who were waiting coffee or water - such a nice gesture! Lots to choose from on their expansive breakfast menu... I ordered the classic Cajun breakfast, per our servers recommendation... Really tasty, very filling... Definitely a... More

Very light and airy local cafe with very good food and service. On a recent weekday early lunch we had immediate seating in a comfortable booth and friendly greeting by our server. Lots of good food choices including breakfast all day. I enjoyed the burrito and potatoes and my friend liked a plate full of scrambled eggs and whole wheat... More

Cute atmosphere, very good food and service. Specials are posted in the Entryway, so be sure to check them out as servers don't recite them unless you ask. Beef pot roast French Dip was tender and delicious. Good burgers too, you can get a small salad instead of fries. Save room for desert, they have great bakery.

I show up right when they opened on my way to airport and I saw some tables already set waiting for patrons. As I sat there longer I saw some older guys come in and take their seat (they do this regularly). The service was fantastic and the food was outstanding. Big fan of places like this that are no...

Neighborhood Cafe is becoming our go to restaurant when we are in search of a meal. Service is great and the owner is out waiting tables and building relationships with customers. We keep trying different selections and always pleased. The other patrons are our kind of folks. Love this place.

Our son wanted us to meet him for breakfast after he ran a 10K in St. Paul. He suggested the Neighborhood Café. Because we hadn't eaten there in about a year, we thought it was high time to check in again. Fortunately, time hasn't changed this local eatery. Even though our society believes that change is good, that does not... More

It's not easy finding parking, but it is SO worth the trouble! The food is wonderful and the service top notch! My husband had the Cajun breakfast - our favorite! I had their homemade corned beef hash - delish!! Our son had their cinnamon French toast and ate every bite (unusual). It's no wonder this place is so highly rated!... More

Cute little place with friendly service. The food was good and fresh, would recommend the Mac and cheese. Good prices, everything under $10.

I was on a business tripto St. Paul. Friends led us to the Neighborhood Cafe in St. Paul. We arrived there earlier enough so it wasn't crowded. Shortly after we arrived, the place started to fill up quickly. Pretty soon folks were standing in line waiting for a table. That was a big hint. The neighborhood Cafe is a righteously... More
