My sister, Natalie and I are roadtrippin’ to Minneapolis this weekend.
I’m well aware that driving from Toronto to Minneapolis is no small feat, but we’re meeting our mother halfway to exchange vehicles. Such is the life of a dealership family.
With two nights in Minneapolis, I’ve decided to compile an inspiration board of places I’d like to visit whilst in Minnesota. When I was attending university in North Dakota, Minnesota was simply a train ride away. The last few times I visited Minneapolis were for dance conventions and performances, (with Studio X) and with my two friends, Jill and Jayden when we attended the Minnesota State Fair.
This trip will be all about experiencing the best Minneapolis has to offer.
The Bachelor Farmer
Location: 50 2nd Ave. N, Minneapolis, MN.
The Nordic-style restaurant is housed in an old warehouse, and much of its menu is sourced from its very own rooftop garden.
Five Watt Coffee
Location: 3745 Nicollet Ave S., Minneapolis, MN. 55409
With “the best wifi in town,” newly-opened Five Watt acts a community hub. It’s a wonderful place to completely disconnect with a delicious pick-me-up or to tackle that pile of work.
Bogart’s Doughnut Co.
Location: 904 West 36th Street, Minneapolis, MN. 55408
At Bogart’s, you’ll find “the first-name greetings of a small town shop, sprinkled with a modern, on-the-go attitude.” Be sure to check their hours, as they close by midday most days.
The Foundry Home Goods
Location: 125 N. 1st Street, Minneapolis, MN. 55401
The Foundry sources locally and high quality made goods, and functions under the philosophy of a non-disposable lifestyle; consuming less but better.
