I heard about Milda's from a co-worker, and went there for lunch today. Their pasties were delicious! (Pasties are like a potpie; they were popular lunches for loggers in Michigan's upper peninsula.) Others in my group enjoyed breakfast (served all day), burgers, soup, and the roast beef dinner. It all looked delicious, and was served quickly with friendly service. The place was hopping during our weekday lunch visit, and I suspect that there's often a wait for a table. Definitely worth the trip to this northside institution! One note: they don't take plastic, so bring cash.

I've been going to Milda's for 30 years, when Milda was still alive. Her daughter, Jane, and her husband are keeping the tradition going. Milda's is the perfect cafe for a diverse, urban neighborhood. Try the pasties, their signature menu item. And the broasted chicken is great!

If you want some comfort food, go no further. Yesterday I had the Swedish Meatballs, "real" mashed potatoes, corn, fresh roll and tossed salad for $8,25. This is a cultural melting pot not to be missed. Yum! Yum!

I started going to Milda's in the 1970s, when it was located across the street at its original location.The food is traditional cafe food, freshly prepared on site. The prices can't be beat. (Just remember to bring cash, as they do not take plastic, and don't come on weekends, when they are closed).
Every month a friend and I hie ourselves to Milda's for their fabulous pasties, a meat pie made from Milda's original recipe brought from the iron Range. The friendly waitresses know us and don't even have to ask what we're ordering.
If you like fancy, dimly lit restaurants with wait staff who recite the menu in French, this will not be for you. The customers are mostly neighborhood and other city folk. You can catch an inside glimpse of what Minneapolis used to be and still is in some quarters.
