Uptown Bar & Cafe: "Great burgers & breakfast!!" Minneapolis Restaurant Tip by brwgrl

Minneapolis Restaurants: 184 reviews and 237 photos

If you're wandering around Uptown and just need a great burger or want breakfast and it's 7pm the place to go is the Uptown Bar & Cafe. It's a great local place where people line up for breakfast on the weekend in hopes of recovering from the excesses of the night before.

The outside is stainless steel which gives it a great diner feel. If you want to spend time people watching this might be the place for you. Both inside the restaurant and walking past on the sidewalk you're bound to see a great variety of people that help make Uptown what it is. You best bet is to get one of the booths by the front windows or sit on the patio outside (although it will be more smokey outside since that's the only place to smoke in Minneapolis - indoor smoking ban).

Favorite Dish: The breakfast at the Uptown is great! Served all day and comes with more food than you'll know what to do.

Another key is the bloody mary and screwdrivers. Go with the large and you'll get to keep the Uptown glass!
