The riverfront’s cobblestone Main Street is lined with terraces and spectacular views. If you enjoy a whiff of history with your food and beverages, check out Pracna on Main, opened circa 1890, making it Minneapolis’ oldest, continually running tavern and café. Pivo Riverplace, gives a casual neighborhood pub atmosphere mixed with the elegance of Art Nouveau. Tranquil Aster Café has a particularly attractive patio to complement its outstanding menu and popular happy hour.
In business for over 60 years, Kramarczuk's Polish restaurant, deli, and bakery offers fresh baked bread, pastries, smoked sausages (in dozens of varieties), stewed cabbage, head cheese, and other Polish and Eastern European favorites. Across the street is All Saints, a fine dining restaurant that's "veggie-forward and meat friendly." They've got a beautiful patio and serve up delicious plates and clever cocktails.
Tea lovers will get a kick out of the Northeast Tea House next door to All Saints. They operate one of the only authentic Japanese matcha mills in the country. You could say matcha is their special-tea. The atmosphere inside is perfect for relaxation and unplugging from the busy outside world.
The slow-cooked comfort food at Brasa Premium Rotisserie includes dishes inspired by cuisines from the Southern U.S., Caribbean, and Mexico—like Creole-style rotisserie chicken, slow roasted pork, crispy yucca, and fried sweet plantains. If you crave some activity with your nosh, head to Minneapolis Cider Co. for their unique twist on hard cider and a game or two of pickleball.
