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

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

I've been to this restaurant twice in the last two weeks. Both time, enjoyed the greatest lunch I've had in years. Everything is so fresh and tasty. They have fantastic service, good sized portions, and are really accommodating for Celiacs. Love this place! Incredible burgers, salads, and breakfast! Highly recommend!!

Stopped on here for lunch. They were busy. Considering this fact, it still took a while to get someone to take our order. Food was ok.

This was an okay place to eat. Not overly special. I had scrambled eggs which tasted odd as I believe they cooked them on the same grill as something else. The waffle was light and fluffy but the maple syrup came in a store-bought Aunt Jemima bottle. The turkey patties were fine. Not spicy. Service was excellent!
