Surviving a Layover at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport

This blog post was updated on October 25, 2018.

Winter isn’t over yet, so there’s still a possibility that you could have an unexpected extended layover at Delta’s hub, Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP).


Luckily, there are worse places to get stuck. Here’s my advice for things to do as you while away the hours.


Grab a bite to eat at French Meadow Café in the Lindbergh Terminal (Terminal 1) Concourse F. Whether you’re in the mood for a satisfying breakfast quiche, a savory lunchtime sandwich, something sweet to get you through the afternoon or a hearty dinner entrée, French Meadow is sure to please. The extensive non-alcoholic beverage, beer, and wine lists don’t hurt either.

Enjoy a cup of java at Dunn Brother’s Coffee, Humphrey Terminal (Terminal 2), Concourse C. This local coffee chain is known for its fresh brew and tasty baked goods. After all, you’ll want to be awake when your flight finally boards.

Find your inner child at Creative Kidstuff, a unique children’s store in the Lindbergh Terminal, Concourse F or at one of the 3 arcades located throughout the Lindbergh Terminal: Lucky Lindy’s Video Arcade (Concourse F), Aurora Borealis (Concourse C), Arcade on G  (Concourse G) or Arcade at T2 in the Humphrey Terminal.


Catch up on your reading and stock up on magazines for the long flight at Author’s Bookstore in the Lindbergh Terminal, Concourse C. Or visit the children’s bookstore The Red Balloon, located right next door.


Unwind with a chair massage, get a manicure, or stock up on Aveda products at Airport Barber and Stylists, Lindbergh Terminal, Concourse D.


Who knows? You may end up having so much fun at MSP that you won’t want to board your flight!
