Breakfast in Minneapolis + 'Burbs

Where can I find great breakfast in the middle of the week either in Minneapolis or the surrounding suburbs? Excluding Perkins/Denny's/IHOP/Original Pancake House. We've been to Fat Nat's Eggs in New Hope and Hell's Kitchen.
Any suggestions? My boyfriend and I both work bizarre schedules and love great breakfast foods but have only been able to find weekend brunches.

  1. Get yourselves to Maria's Cafe for corn pancakes. Your lives will never be the same.

      P.S. If you haven't been to Al's Breakfast, you should give it a try. I think they serve breakfast until 1:00 or 2:00 pm (when they close).

      [EDIT TO ADD: The places link won't stay on this post, but see this link for info.]

    2. A place that is really good for breakfast, and has really great coffee is Wilde Roast Cafe-today I had two corn pancakes with blueberries and a large turtle mocha for under ten dollars. I've had their lunch and bakery items and they are great too.

      1. Good Day Cafe on the frontage road north of 394 in Golden Valley. Yummy food, good vibe.

        2. Theres a really good place called our kitchen. its off 36th and bryant. and its open at 630 am till about 3

          1. I always say this, but I'm a huge fan of Sunny-Side Up Cafe-kind of cheesy looking, but good eggs benedict. The corned beef hash was kind of salty though. They don't take cards, so make sure you bring cash or your checkbook.
