This is a fun little shop where you get personal attention. The clothing is modern, so you will be sure to find something that will give you a impressive style. Clothing is not over the top stylish, so you won't leave looking like a slave to a passing fad. They have very sleek clothing that's good for professional business and date night.
This store offers a modern approach to clothing retail. They stock unique accessories that can't be found elsewhere. They also carry music and will advise you on styling your look. Good for the fashion forward person. They have all price ranges and the staff is very nice. Their philosophy is people have enough clothing, they just need accessories.
They color walls let you know this place is a stand out and different from other flower shops. This is a great location to stop in on a lunch break and get a flower gift for someone in your office. Or stop in after work before heading home. The choices are stunning and out of ordinary. Have to see the displays to get an idea of the creative spirit that reigns here.
This medium sized store is packed with quality stone items. On my last visit, they had strings of big fat pearls at bargin prices. They carry unique stone items in all price ranges and sizes. Also lots of finished jewelry pieces available. Some items are collectables. Good store for rock hounds and beaders of all ages. They have moved, so be sure to call for them for their new address and location.
This is the best place for organic foods in the Twin Cities. After a romantic evening of walking over the Mississippi River on the stone arch bridge and a play at the Guthrie Theater, you can get healthy and well presented food at this restaurant. You can trust that the food is reallly healthy becuase the owner has been serving healthy food at her first restaurant, Cafe Brenda, for many years and is also a strong supporter of the weekend farmers market held next door. If your not in the mood to sit at the cafes tables inside, you can sit out side or take something to go and sit on the banks of the river for a picnic.
My husband loves this place. The service is almost the best. This is a traditional setting that is very formal perfect for business celebrations. I just wish it offered more vegetable choices and smaller cuts of meats for petite female guests.
PROS: Good for serious meat eaters
Love the charm of the building and the location. Ask to be seated with a view of the river stream. Very romantic setting and perfect for a Victorian holiday meal. They have since changed chefs since I ate there, but I have no reason to believe its any better. The serve home-style selections that do not taste homemade. Instead, it's the typical tasteless fare a lot of restaurants serve.
PROS: Can see river stream from table
CONS: Food is lackluster
This place tries hard to be more then a chain. Sometimes they even have live music. The decor almost comes off as homey, but at least its cheerful and bright with the many window view of the busy street. They just don't offer enough fresh produce items beyond a plain leafy salad. And the drink choices are just as limited. But if you like sandwiches and pastries, then this is a place for you.
PROS: Good for bread items and sweets
CONS: Lack of varity
A nice little bar style restaurant in the downtown old warehouse district. Very modern urban atmosphere in spite of the old building. The sushi is very inventive and unique not just in presentation but in the spicy ingredients as well. A overall fun place to go.
PROS: Elegant presentations
CONS: Spice is sometimes overpowering
I love the little outdoor scenery they have at the entrance that you walk through before being seated. And everyone shouts out at greeting as you are brought to your table. It really sets the mood. They have a good selection of sushi that's always fresh, but I'm not sure if they still offer one of my favorite items. It was a unique combination plate for the whole table and served in a ship motif. If they still offer this, get it by all means. It is very festive and good tasting.
PROS: Entrance Atmosphere
