Trip Report Back from Minneapolis

Jump to last reply

Or how I ate my way through Minneapolis!So much for trying to lose a few pounds.

I had a wonderful 5 days visiting a dear friend in Minneapolis.
I had never been to this city and I loved it.
Tragically, the bridge had fallen the night before I arrived. Of course, everyone was worried about the missing people and the mood was somber.

But we had eating to do! My friend lives Uptown and so she showed me all the restaurants in the area. I was surprised at how big they were inside,and even on a Thurs night, they were packed.

Right across the street from my friend was Isles Bun and Coffee, at 1422 West 28th St.
Oh my goodness! The cinammon buns, and puppy dog tails were soooo good. And they had a huge bowl of icing ..a help yourself bowl.. and I did indeed help myself. IT was to die for. They could have just given me a spoon and the bowl. Forget the buns! I went over every morning for my fix and a coffee.

There was the Uptown Art Fair taking place and it was a great place to wander around and look at all the beautiful crafts and paintings. THe artists were from all over the States , and even Canada, and the work was top quality ...I really enjoyed seeing it all.

Ok, on to more eating.. BTW, we didn't do any fine dining, but rather some favourite spots of my friends.

We went one night to Convention Grill for really great burgers adn fries. IT's at 3912 Sunnyside Road, Edina.

Another night we went to Pepito's at 4820 Chicago Ave S. The favourite that night was Nachos Lupitas and Enchiladas. Delicious!!

During the day we went on driving excursions, so my friend could show me her lovely city. I saw many beautiful areas. ..and loved the small lakes within the city.

Then, of course, we went to Mall of America. HUGE!! I really just wanted to see it, but really felt the NEED to spend some money! I found a shop called Black and White and got a couple of pairs of really cute shorts.
We ate there ( food talk again!) at the Twin City Grill. I recommend the BBQ Chicken Flatbread pizza. Oh it was soooo good.

Of course in between we had ice creams and other goodies.

I'm not usually so good at wanting to write down the names of places, but these places were all so good, I had to share them. And none of them were expensive.

Oh and we went to Maria's Cafe to have a Corn Pancake that was also very very good.
It's located at 1113 E Franklin Av.

As you can see, we did enjoy our eating, and I would love to go back to Minneapolis again. It's truly a lovely city.
