Hodges Bend! shown above serves barista coffee, cocktails, beer, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just one block away on University Ave. A link to their menu is at the right.

The Surly Brewry shown above, has high-quality, chef-prepared brew pub food and of course, Surly beer! It's just a short walk away!

The deli in Fresh Thyme has lots of take-out food choices!

Can Can Wonderland is a weird and fun place for casual food (including crazy-delicious pizzas unusual hotdogs,) and wacky drinks (including the bleu cheese cocktail called "Sailing The Seas of Cheese" or the rhubarb one called "smash Brothers") Seriously- we tried both and they're good! Also you can play vintage pinball and mini golf. (Or maybe you can't if you've sailed the seas of cheese a bit too long.)

A note regarding restaruants and coffee shops:

The nearby commercial neighborhood is a vibrant and ever-changing place.

Because Bobbin House is near the University of Minnesota MPLS campus, There are always new dining options opening as others close and in fact, there are so many that we're unable to keep track of them!

Yes, there are many others which are just as good. These are nearby and easy to find.
