I'm a fan of local shops over chains in general, and a fan of this place in particular. They have varying specials throughout the week ranging from free flavor shots & size upgrades to discounts on whole-bean coffee (of which Nordeast Mud is King). Prices are competitive along with having a punchcard deal for frequent drinkers. And being within sight of Punch Pizza, Nye's and Kramarczuk's puts Taraccino right in the thick of a hoppin' hub in Northeast Minneapolis.

Let's not forget the coffee! Their Dark Chocolate Mocha is pure heaven (not powder or syrup, but melted Ghiradelli chips steamed into frothy goodness with your milk)! And they make their own whipped cream, which is a big difference from the spraycan stuff you get pretty much anywhere else.

The staff is very attentive & friendly, and they're glad to oblige when my daughter asks if she can put the sprinkles on her cocoa herself.

I only wish they were open later...I think they close at 6 or 7. And sometimes on-street parking can be a little tricky (but hey, it's a city), though there's an inexpensive metered lot just around the corner. If you're in the area, be sure to stop in!

If you want to experience some quaintness near this busy junction, stop by here. I am not a coffee drinker, so cant comment on that other than my fiance seems to think its pretty strong. I l absolutely love their tiramisu. They also have some good tea and deli stuff. Exchange books and relax in here with a book or a friend while satisfying your sweet tooth.

Step aside, Starbucks & Caribou behemoths - Taraccino has got you outclassed!

Jerry, the owner, brews his own coffee - I've got my pound of "Nordeast Mud" at home and wouldn't bother getting out of bed except for the double shot that I know is waiting for me.

Bright, clean, smoke-free, with a shelf full of books to read and board games to play.
