Day 1: Boutique Browsing, Local Food and More

50th and France

Start your day by heading to the intersection of France Avenue South and West 50th Street, where you’ll find the 50th & France shopping and dining district.

Breakfast: Edina Grill, which might be Edina’s most famous breakfast joint with a menu of eggs benedict, spinach frittatas, Tuscan omelette with potato gnocchi and more.

After breakfast, it’s time to explore some of the best shopping in Minneapolis at stores like Bluebird Boutique (bohemian wear), Bumbershute (urban mod clothing), Evereve (comfy chic wear), Parc Boutique (minimalist fashion) and Equation (city chic).

Lunch: Arezzo Ristorante on France Avenue. The Tuscan-style bistro is adorned in Italian murals and frescoes. The can’t-miss item is the handmade gnocchi served four ways: four cheese, plum tomato sauce, bolognese and pesto.

Southdale Center

After a morning at 50th & France, make your way nine minutes south by car to Southdale Center, a mall considered the first of its kind (indoor and climate-controlled) in the nation when it opened in 1956. This is where you can find stores like Macy’s, Herberger’s, Michael Kors, J.Crew, Madewell, Sephora and Aveda.

Dinner: The Cheesecake Factory, with a menu featuring pastas, pizzas and salads. Cocktails are served at the restaurant for shoppers to end the night with a toast to a successful day of shopping—and don’t forget a slice of cheesecake.

After breakfast, it’s time to do some serious shopping. There are familiar store brands like Tiffany’s, Coach, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and Louis Vuitton in addition to smaller, independent boutiques like Pumpz (for designer shoes) and Melly (for apparel and accessories).

Lunch: People’s Organic, a mod cafe serving local and organic American eats alongside fair-trade coffee as well as wine and beer.

After lunch hit up all the amazing home stores at Galleria including Crate and Barrel, Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn. Across the street on France is another can’t-miss home store, Room & Board (the only one in the Upper Midwest).
