  • Common Roots is a great neighborhood place that supports local farmers. Check out the garden in the back!
  • Four or five kinds of Surly on tap, and most are only $3 from 3-6. Every. Single. Day. Unbeatable.
  • Fish tacos are out of this world and super authentic, complete with house-made aioli and mago salsa.
  • Voted top interpretation of the chocolate chip cookie. The sea salt chocolate chip cookie is the perfect size, and always the right mix of crunchy-crispy outer edges and gooey-soft, chewy middle.
  • Voted by City Pages in 2010 as having the Best Bagel in the Best of the Twin Cities Issue. Were partial tothe nutty crunch of the sesame, but all aretasty.
  • One of the best post-holiday eats! Their motto is "don't compromise your values, or your tastebuds", which they definitely live up to and that's enough for them to make this list.
  • The Alex Frecon comes in 3 different sizes. But you should probably avoid it.
  • 9am on a Saturday means open tables!
  • Take a moment to appreciate all the amazing people who work at and patronize this place. It's a big pile of goodness.
  • Give Mustache Matt a high-five. It's his signature.
  • The breakfast sandwich is something special. Just a fried egg sandwich, but done so well.
  • Try the Wild Rice Burger. It's not always on the menu but when it is - it will blow your mind.
  • Iced Red Eye Chai, ftw.
  • The people its so kind...
  • Please don't camp out at a 4-person table if you are a party of 1.
  • Eat the wild rice burger. Eat it you fool!!!!!
  • Always dog friendly on the deck and side patio. Deck is raised away from the street, perfect for dogs to view Lyndale safely.
  • Best veggie burgers in the world. I speak with authority on that subject.
  • You need to try the breakfast enchiladas. They will change your life.
  • The salted caramel iced latte is unbeatable, and the soft pretzels should not be missed. Yum!
