Top five outstanding coffee shops in Minneapolis

Abdi Isaaq


MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Coffee has always been an important element of our culture in Minnesota.

While there have long been wonderful coffee shops with distinct neighborhood characters, there have never been so many selling such a broad choice of ethically sourced beans, gorgeous foamy tops, or enterprises that take food as seriously as coffee.

These are five great places to get a cup of them, prepared with the best beans, brewed with care, and ready to go in Minneapolis and nearby.

1. Five Watt Coffee

“Five Watt is where I go when I really want to treat myself to my favorite coffee beverage. The Kingfield just hits every flavor note for me. It’s really something special and I’m determined to keep it that way by not showing up for one every day... which is what I really want to do!” – Maureen S. on Yelp.

3. FRGMNT Coffee

“Interior is amazing. Just my style. Spacious, modern, cozy. Coffee here runs a bit high and isn’t that good. We got oatmilk latte with maple syrup and they didn’t foam it well. Paid $6 for a small.
