You love coffee, donuts, breweries, brunch, and bars. Chances are you might be from Portland. You'll adore this metropolitan city in the Midwest, specially the Northeast side of Minneapolis for many of the same reasons you've still got a crush on Portland.
Sentyrz has been a staple in the Northeast community since 1923 and is still one of the only places in the city where you can purchase liquor and groceries on the same bill. Check out the meat counter and don't miss the products from Poland.
The bar is small, yes...but it just makes it easier to make new friends, even if it's the bartender who always remembers your poison. Trivia Mafia (one of the best trivia programs in town) is held here on Sundays.
Energizing shows and rad events like Punk Rock Prom take place here. Order the Prix Fixe: a tall boy of PBR, a shot, and one cigarette for $5.
The beautifully roasted and prepared meat and Southern sides are the most addicting pair on this side of the river.
I have a bias because I hung around Sen Yai Sen Lek long enough for Joe & Holly to hire me. But whether or not I was loitering or asking for a job, I've always loved the Isan dishes, the vegetarian options, and the harder to find NE cuisine like Ba Mee Haeng.
Classic, Midwest-inspired cuisine in the heart of Nordeast. Try Jean's Mean Fried Egg Sandwich and then come back for Hazel's Ruben.
A quick breakfast doesn't mean it can't be hearty too, and Maeve's proves this during breakfast hours daily. Sandwiches and wine available in the afternoon.
The pink boxes and bacon-topped donuts may hint toward inspiration from Portland's Voodoo Dougnut, but Glam Doll surpasses its predecessor in taste, quality, and selection.
Minneapolis brewers are wising up to our desire to drink where our beer is brewed. Wait lists to view the process in-house are a ritual of the past. The tap house has made it's way to the city and Indeed's brews are just right.
