MSP/STP: Where to Get Your Favorite Latte (or latte-like beverage)
We recently moved to Saint Paul from Washington, DC. For those of you who have been to DC and have had the pleasure of sipping a latte at Tryst in Adam's Morgan, that is my gold standard. I like ample milk, foamed thick and creamy, with a strong, but not bitter espresso. The other day I had a cafe cubano at Swede Hollow Cafe that was really out of this world--so far the best milky-coffee beverage I've had in MN. I'm hoping others will share their favorite latte locales -- particularly in Saint Paul, but Mpls is OK too.

I personally like the original Dunn Brothers on Grand Ave in Saint Paul. I am a latte fan (post noon) and a black coffee fan (pre noon) - free parking in the lot as marked. Not the lot attached to the coffee shop.
I have had Koplin's coffee - it was excellent - but I haven't had a latte there.
I have also had amazing lattes at the Coffee News Cafe also on grand - they give you a pint glass & I like that much better than foam or cardboard.

You've already found one of my favorites: Swede Hollow. Best, in my limited experience, is Kopplin's on Hamline in St. Paul. I also liked Black Sheep, in South St. Paul, very much the few times I made it over there. Cafe Amore used to make a decent Cubano (although I think that's ended), as did Brewberry's. BCC on Wabasha makes a nice cold brewed iced coffee. I hear Coffee, Tea LTD in Minneapolis make a good cup too.
