New Hot Spots in Minneapolis

  • e

I need help! I am planning a pre-wedding Girls Weekend in Minneapolis. I need breakfast, lunch, and Sunday brunch options. I would love the very new, hot spots. I am open to the old favorites too if there are some that you think are great, great, great. I am from MN, but live in California I am not up to speed. Thanks for the help! Price is not an issue (we don't want over the top for a breakfast or lunch place though) and we'd love fun places. Again, thanks.

  1. There is a newer or hotter/trendier place for breakfast than Hell's Kitchen on 10th St. in Mpls.


    1. For Sunday Brunch, here's a couple of options that your guests may not have heard of - but are both great.

      Triple Rock Social Club:
      Punk Bar by night, serving a great breakfast Saturdays and Sundays from 10AM-4PM. If your guest are put off by colorful clientele, this isn't the place. If you're into huge portions of great food (almost everything available in vegan and vegetarian options) this is.

      Signature Cafe:
      This is a small place in a residential neighborhood. Sunday Brunch is by reservation only - not because there isn't space, but because the owners need to know how many people they'll be cooking for. It is usually just the two of them working. Nathalie cooks, while her husband takes care of table service. If you want to know how something was made, just ask Nathalie when she's bringing something out to the 'buffet' - she'll be glad to tell you all you want to know about it!

      I put buffet in quotes because there are only 5 or 6 dishes. This isn't a gorgefest - this is like being invited over to a friends house - if your friend happened to be a fine dining chef. I don't think you'll find a better brunch for $15.00.
