MPLS Breakfast downtown or NE Tomorrow

Mel Carne Nov 17, 2007 11:25 AM

Is Hells Kitchen still open/good? My wife wants to meet some friends from Milwaukee tomorrow for breakfast in either downtown MPLS, NE, or Uptown. Thanks

    For the sake of posterity, had I seen this Friday I would have suggested in NE:

    The Modern

    Mill City Cafe

    Spring St Tavern

    Mac's Industrial


    MmmmmMmmmmm breakfast!

      If Nordeast is really an option I vote for the Modern Cafe.

      Since I live so close to Calhoun Grill, I'll put in a plug for it. Not just because of my close proximity but because I really like the Cajun breakfast: Hashbrowns, fried eggs, fried bell peppers and onions, hollandaise - you know, health conscious diet food. My brother and my close friend go for the waffles and my brother (a coffee aficionado) got a very good cafe au lait there recently.

        Well Rats. Modern Cafe Places link just refuses to place itself.

        Yep, its still open and its still SO GOOD! The only thing I'm going to say is get there early. They are only open until 2 and there is always a very long wait...like 45 minutes...but its TOTALLY worth it. If you don't want to do that, theres a place called Muffaletta by Como Zoo that is great and kind of similar. In uptown, I love the breakfast/brunch options at French Meadows Cafe.

          This recent visitor liked Hell's Kitchen:

          Other ideas: Moose & Sadie's (not sure of their hours on Sunday), Spoonriver, or Colossal Cafe. See these threads:

            Colossal is fantastic, but teeny tiny... So, may not be appropriate, depending on how many friends you're planning on meeting.

            Hell's Kitchen is very good (almost everything is made from scratch...), so expect a wait.

              My husband stopped by Colossal Cafe last weekend and they're closed for almost all of November. I hope that's a really good sign and not that they're going out of business or something. I don't know what I would do without their scones.
