Go to the restaurant or coffee shop down the street. Eat, drink and be merry while at the same time supporting local businesses. They make our neighborhoods and our city strong. There are so many options. It has been a hard year for our local businesses. Just drive along University avenue in St. Paul and see the vacant store fronts. We don't want any more vacant store fronts. The slowest days for most restaurants are Tuesday and Wednesday.
This is the most photogenic restaurant in St. Paul, Mickey's Diner on 7th and St. Peter Street, downtown.
Brewberrys on Fairview and Randolph even says "neighborhood coffee shop" right above the front door. It is also one of the warmer coffee shops around. I have had their ice cream and it is wonderful but never a blue ice cream like the one on the building.I don't like to eat things that are blue unless they are round and served on top of a waffle.
