Black Dog Cafe & Wine Bar, St. Paul (Lowertown), MN
This is one heck of a spot for this neighborhood to have out their back door. They serve all manner of coffee drinks, plus beer & wine, and make solid simple food to order. I've been here a number of times now and never have reservations on going back. They even do live music.
An almost perfect breakfast sandwich.... I just need to ask for some hot sauce
