Foursquare Tips

  • Plan on waiting and not comfortably.
  • Voted Best Neighborhood Cafe (St. Paul) by City Pages in 2012! The vibe here is quieter, homier, & generally a bit nicer compared to the ironically named joint in mpls; A great place to stay & chat."
  • The bacon cream cheese omelet is to die for!
  • Great food!
  • Great biscuits. Very original pancakes. The pancakes are yeast raised and taste like eating a beer. I like it. Toasted bread is excellent too. There was a fairly long line but still quick to seat.
  • They do egg-white omelets too. Taste great.
  • Everything
  • Biscuits and gravy are so good! Busy on the weekends.
  • Everyone's yapping about their brunch, but the dinner is good too, especially the seasonal risotto.
  • Outstanding food and Summit Saga on tap. Was there for dinner but brunch looked amazing.
  • The Apple, Walnut, & Brie flappers are amazing and huge. You can easily split the small order and be fine. Great service, too!
  • New favorite place.
  • Their pancakes are yeast-raised and called "flappers," so expect tons of girls in St. Paul to start dressing up as sexy pancakes next Halloween. Then you can thank Colossal.
  • Eggs, hashbrowns and toasts! With coffee of course!
  • Warm, small space with interesting food choices, great staff and a neighborhood feel.
  • Incredible breakfast sandwiches.
  • Pork belly breakfast tacos were great!
  • One of our diners called the egg and cheese on a biscuit "the most satisfying meal you can get for five bucks. The scrambled eggs, thick cheddar cheese, and a homemade biscuit are all first class.
  • Hard to find. Good food.
  • Cold brew on tap and a cinnamon bun as big as my head.
