The Twin Cities boasts a very diverse food scene, ranging from world-class burgers, authentic Asian cuisine, and a surprisingly large amount of West African inspired foods. Let’s not forget about the numerous amounts of delectable cafes and coffee roasters.
A local favorite and a must-eat while visiting the metro area is the Blue Door Pub. Their food is not only delicious, but also quite affordable. If you’re looking for something more European, Barbette is a neighborhood bistro that features French-inspired cuisine. With locally sourced ingredients and an imaginative breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu, this often packed bistro is well worth the wait. An equally eclectic neighborhood eatery, but more affordable venue is the Seward Café. Catering home-style vegetarian and vegan dishes, Seward is perfect for patrons wanting a bunch of food for a low price.
As for the local microbrew scene, Minneapolis hosts some fantastic breweries that brew a diverse selection. To try any of Minnesota’s local brews, Republic Pub is a great place to start. For Irish fare, Anchor Fish & Chips cooks up a mean fried cod that fills up the entire plate.
