This place is iconic. A 24 hour coffee shop and home to the grunge/hippie scene, it's a long-standing Minneapolis gem. Their food menu caters to the vegans among us, with options for everyone. Come here on a rainy day to play board games and hang out.

Punk/hippie style cafe/eatery. Vegetarian food, strong coffee! Cash only. Sometimes the music is a little loud, but it's a fun place to see some of the gritty local scene. Open late, and within walking distance from Royal Blue!

Indian Restaurant
“Unique and Authentic Indian Food- this place has Indian food like no other I have tasted. Very different from what I expected but delicious. Tucked next to the Cedar Cultural Center sits Malabari Kitchen, a cozy little restaurant that serves South Indian food with big flavor. The only restaurant in Minnesota specializing in Kerala cuisine, Malabari Kitchen’s home style cooking features a rich array of spices and focuses on using only natural ingredients.”
