This Minneapolis suburb has all the big-city convenience
with a dose of small-town charm.
With its small-town charm and easy access to downtown Minneapolis, it is easy to see why this suburb is becoming so popular. What most people may not know, however, is that Robbinsdale is experiencing a food-takeover as well. Travail Kitchen and Amusements, the Rookery and Pig Ate My Pizza are all owned by the same crew, offering theatrical takes on classic American fare. Other great spots include staples like Mai Thai and St. Petersburg Restaurant and Vodka Bar. Located northwest of Minneapolis, you can enjoy small town living here and rather affordable historic houses. The neighborhood has its fair share of local shops popping up—walk down West Broadway Avenue and find hidden gems like Finds on Broadway, an antique shop, or Minnesota Makers, a boutique featuring the handmade work of local artisans.
