      Common Roots Cafe-- especially if you're open to having a Surly Coffee Bender (beer) with breakfast....

        Barbette or Lucia's Bakery would be my first two choices. If you're looking for more of a diner-type experience you could either go for a gut-buster like the Uptown Diner or old school with Our Kitchen on 36th and Bryant.

        [Edited to add that the map to the right is wrong - Our Kitchen is not in North Minneapolis, but is just East of Lakewood Cemetery on 36th Street.]

        Lucia's Restaurant
        1432 W 31st St, Minneapolis, MN 55408

        1600 W Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55408

        Our Kitchen
        813 West 36th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55408-4107

        Uptown Diner
        2548 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55405

          I like Our Kitchen a lot, wonderful hashbrowns and super-friendly staff. BUT be prepared to wait, both for a stool at the counter and for your meal. I've been there approx. four times and it took over 45 minutes once we had ordered. So, if you're not in a hurry or dying from hunger, it's worth a try.

            I love Our Kitchen too.

            A great spot with more seats is the Sunnyside Up Cafe on 27th & Lyndale:
