Libertine | Uptown Minneapolis

Libertine Mpls

The Libertine in Uptown Minneapolis is the brainchild of Chef Tim McKee and is located in the old Cafeteria building. It’s an absolutely perfect rooftop location for a post shopping Sunday brunch.

I ordered “A Sailor Friend,” which was a mixture of blueberry and vanilla vodka, and cardamom. While it looked gorgeous, it was extremely sweet and not something I’d order again.




I kept it basic with the sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich, which was absolutely delicious. It had a great amount of flavor and the sausage patty was seasoned to perfection.

The sandwich also came with 4 potato wedges which I could have done without. They looked great, considering they could literally combine to make a baked potato, but that was really all it was – a baked potato cut in fourths. It didn’t have any flavoring or seasoning.




Like I said at the beginning, their rooftop is the perfect location. It’s also incredibly well designed and the colors/decorations are great.  It was smoldering on Sunday, though, so we were excited to eat at the bar which had a bit of sun shelter.

We were not the only ones in the mood for brunch, however, as a very intoxicated man named Mills decided to invade our personal space, tell us a rambling story with no real point about a girl he met in Prague, and then serenade us…badly. He just couldn’t quite reach that note…

Naturally I made him a Snapchat celeb, because duh!

The bartenders were really friendly and were great at creating a buffer between us and said drunk guy once they realized we were not in fact friends like they had previously assumed. I also have nothing but respect for people who are able to maintain a smile while working in that type of heat!

We also learned the escape routes for when the elevator gets stuck/breaks down. There’s a reason they only allow 8 people in the elevator at once!

Overall, it was a fun time, but I would probably stick to the Drunch menu and order a Bloody Mary next time.
