On our recent crawl around Northeast we made it a point to cross the river and finally visit Pryes Brewing Company.
This Brewery/taproom is beautiful. I know that it’s pretty typical at this point for breweries to be popping up in warehouses with high ceilings and lots of exposed metal tops, but there was just something a little extra that I can’t exactly define that set this place above the rest.

Let me just preface this with how excited I am that finally someone was smart enough to open up a restaurant close to Indeed Brewing Company and Able Seedhouse + Brewery. While food trucks are a brewery staple, it just did not make sense that there was this whole area of Northeast without viable food options. With that I would like to say thank you to Centro @ Popol Vuh for being smart enough to join the neighborhood and for being open in time for my birthday celebration!
Uncle Franky’s is located in a hole-in-the-wall standalone square building close to the corner of Monroe & Broadway in Northeast. After years of experiencing hot dog cravings after driving by it at night when they were already closed, I am happy to report that I finally made it there with my co-pilot Mikayla, and that it was phenomenal.Continue reading
Carma Coffee located off Lowry Ave. in Northeast is most likely recognizable as having a very similar name to the business next to them, Good Carma Auto Repair, who has been their partner since they opened in 2014.
After years of forgetting Carma Coffee existed until I was driving by, a hankering for a new Sunday coffee stop and a mention from a fellow Northeast dweller, finally made Carma Coffee top of mind. A decision I’m delighted with. Continue reading
Yes, that is snow on the ground in this picture. This is clearly a post that’s been a long time coming! After trying Marina Grill & Deli I was quite curious about this Marino’s Deli that I kept driving by on my numerous trips down Johnson to Target…#GirlProblems. It quickly became clear that these two Northeast gems have nothing in common other than their longstanding Northeast Minneapolis traditions and a couple standard deli menu items. Continue reading
While Northeast does have many things, one thing that seems pretty lacking is Sports Bars. Besides Stanley’s, every other location is pretty dive or niche. So the triumphant opening of Bunny’s Bar & Grill NE was actually pretty exciting, not to mention their location in St. Louis Park has such a cult following from many of my suburb friends.
Having opened the week before Superbowl Sunday, they were not only my choice location to explain Football to our visiting British friend, but they were also my choice place to celebrate Adult Easter (seemed fitting) and continue to remain one of my favorite weekend beverage destinations.

Donuts are bae. When I heard that Glam Doll Donuts was opening a second location in Northeast, I was excited to finally be able to try them out. I’ve always heard amazing things about their boutique donuts and knowing it is a female owned business touched me in all the feels. Continue reading
