Hello MSP Hounds,
I host a 4-day professional training 3-4 times/year at the Wellstone Center in the West Side and would very much appreciate some updated info. on casual lunch options in the area.
My group (anywhere from 3 to 6 people at a time; 2/3 are from out of town) likes: El Burrito Mercado, Tanpopo, Swede Hollow Cafe, Saigon, Que Nha, Cafe Latte, Jerabek's Bakery Cafe, Louisiana Cafe, and Ngon Bistro.
My group has tried and is not interested in returning to: Bread Coffee and Cake (a little too cramped; food choice limited), Cafe Juliahna (good food but service way too slow), Black Dog Cafe (food unremarkable), and Cheeky Monkey (I loved my salad but some who had sandwiches described them as "anemic" and one person thought hers was "under-seasoned").
My group wouldn't go to: Babani's and Beirut (someone in the group is not fond of Middle Eastern food) or Little Sichuan (some are fearful of spicy food).
I would like to try: Cossetta (too hard to get through the lines?), Pop!, Senor Wong, Punch Pizza on Grand Ave, and Bangkok Thai Deli.
Your thoughts and suggestions? Any notable Skyway options? Thank you.
