Authentic and affordable Ecuadorian food. Dont let the lack of curb appeal scare you, its a real sleeper and a secret gem of the neighborhood. Few tables so sometimes a wait but never long.

Run by two sisters Jody and Jenny, The Coffeeshop is a great neighborhood hang out spot. With a variety of open mic's, there is always a reason to not take your coffee to-go and stay to meet the NE'er regulars that idle there.

In my opinion, the best Thai food in MSP. Often crowded, its worth the wait for a table. They have great beers on tap as well.

There is no category for a meat-free butcher shop. They not only are creating a new category, they may end up owning everyone else's as they take the neighborhood by storm. Im not sure if my meat eating friends would agree but because of them, I just had a Bacon Lettuce and Tomatoe sandwich for the first time in 25 years. Its was de-lish and not a pig complained.

We Have Breathtaking Nature (sometimes covered in snow...)
Less than 100 feet from The Garden Apartment with a Fireplace, Deming Heights Park is the highest point in Minneapolis. It is the beginning of the Grand Rounds bike trails but you will not find any playground equipment or really anything else except trees, a few benches and one very special 'Fairy Tree' with a secret door and treasures inside...if you can find it!

A Three Rivers Park that is a secret place somewhat undiscovered and usually not crowded. Walking trails through natural forested beauty so dense you will feel like you are miles out of the city. A visitors center that is complete with a small gallery showing local art, a smoothie and pastry bar and a large room available for weddings and special events. Sunset yoga drop in on Tuesdays at 7 are a favorite and dont miss the OnStage Summer Concert Series. Pack a picnic and sit for a free concert. Silverwoodonstage.org for schedules.

Although I do not ever recommend visiting a zoo and wish they would be outlawed, I highly recommend leaving NE Mpls for only one reason....to hang out at The Como Conservatory. The fern room is intoxicating, the Japanese garden is meditative and one of the best outdoor Japanese gardens in the world, and lastly my favorite-their deep collection of Bonsai. A 400 year old cedar???You gotta love this place, its totally worth the trip to Saint Paul.

Not your garden variety vintage store, there is nothing musty and old about the treasures here. Aubre has a collection of the cities finest clothing, hats, accessories and other swag from years gone by. Everytime I visit, I leave feeling a little bit cooler...like Don Dreper might notice me if I would wear that dress.

Mid century specialists, findfurnish has the best quality and deepest variety of vintage furniture. Always a destination for the best quality, they travel around the Midwest hunting for mid century modern, Danish modern and vintage industrial furniture and lighting. I usually have a few pieces I obsess about...dont ruminate long tho, things disappear fast.

Sightseeing
Sure, get tickets and see an amazing play there-thats a no brainer..but, if you want to just dip in and out for free and see not only the most stunning view of the river but the cantilevered feat of architecture that is The Endless Bridge. Framed and forced perspective views highlight and give focus to many nearby historical landmarks. Stretching more than 175 feet from the building face, the 30 foot wide Endless Bridge towers over West River Parkway and you can sit on it and watch the river flow by as long as you'd like...for free. Or the cost of a cocktail from the bar near the entrance.
