  • The vegetarian Pumpkin Soup ($14) with mole, sopes, and wild mushrooms is unique and addictively savory.
  • Try the Famous Modern Hash. The hash is a morning knockout: A duo of perfectly poached eggs on that holy pot roast, dressed with potatoes, peppers, and herbs.
  • Try the Pot Roast for dinner or pancakes, french toast, eggs and bacon for breakfast
  • The meatloaf is a slice of cozy bliss.
  • Have a local beer and a glass of wine at the same time while enjoying the pot roast.
  • Best brunch in Nordeast.
  • Take a picture of the giant COCK and post it on FourSquare.
  • Have the BBQ Meatloaf're welcome.
  • Try the Apple Risotto! It's a little heavy on the apples but so good.
  • One of the best kept secrets of Minneapolis and it's appeared on "Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives".
  • Pork cabbage pancakes are crisp, soulful and awesome - good buy at $9, too.
  • They keep a large table for parties of 5 or more open since they don't take reservations. Try the sidecar martini!
  • Good food but not the place for breakfast if you're in a hurry. The service gets slower every time.
  • NOW CLOSED! But had some truly amazing food and was great for vegetarians and vegans and for a truly delicious brunch!
  • Cool and weird vibe.
  • Eggs, coffee, breakfast, and atmosphere
  • Check out The Modern Cafe as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
  • My favorite breakfast joint within walking distance of my place. Get the scrambled eggs.
  • The pot roast at the Modern is the stuff of legend. The fries and breakfasts are tops, too.
  • Pot roast was amazing! So we're the fries. I've never had fresh cut fries be so crispy! Also got the rabbit bit was disappointed it was a loaf and served cold, but still good.
