Minneapolitans are incredibly fortunate for many reasons, one of which is the dazzling array of independent coffee shops – each unique – where we can sip our daily java. Here are my top recommendations.
708 W 22nd St Minneapolis 55405
Home away from home to Uptown hipsters, young professionals, artists, students, and writers, Caffetto serves up homemade baked goods and delicious espresso drinks. Grab something hot and caffeinated and then settle into a vintage overstuffed chair to surf the web using their free WiFi (ask for the password at the counter). The old school video games and fuseball in the basement are the perfect way to work off your caffeine jitters.
3403 Lyndale Ave S Minneapolis 55408
Not only does Crema Café serve mouth-watering espresso drinks, they also specialize Sonny’s Ice Cream (made on site), light lunch and dinner plates, and homemade chocolates. Come for the coffee, stay for the rest — and enjoy it all in their delightful courtyard.
Moose and Sadie’s
212 3rd Ave Minneapolis 55401
Moose and Sadie’s is a favorite among North Loop residents, and it’s easy to see why. With gourmet coffee, fresh-baked goods, casual fare and free WiFi, it’s the perfect place to hunker down and get your caffeine fix.
Wilde Roast Cafe
65 SE Main St. Minneapolis 55414
A coffee shop for the literary-minded, Wilde Roast Café is a charming place to enjoy your daily cup of java. On any given day, you can expect to find the Wilde Roast Cafe full of neighborhood professionals clicking away on laptops or swapping ideas over a cup of top-notch brew.
2451 Nicollet Ave Minneapolis 55404
Many Minneapolis dwellers call Spyhouse their home away from home. Thanks to the work-conducive vibe, creative atmosphere (featuring rotating shows by local artists), delicious baked goods and coffee drinks (Spyhouse brews local with Peace Coffee), Spyhouse has garnered a faithful clientele.
