I go to Stanley's for lunch during work a lot. This is a great place- not too fancy, not a dive bar, but just right. They have a solid menu of lunch, dinner and bar food. great for family. Secret tip: Thu- Sat there is a fancy drink secret speakeasy called "Al's place" upstairs. If they are open,…
“Closest dive bar to my front door: I can get to Shaw's back door in 2 minutes. Bar food is decent (the Shaw burger requires 5 napkins, the Sun burger is a long-time NE fave). Monday night is Blues Night—one of the best-kept secrets in town. Live music almost every night, almost never a cover. Everyone at the bar is a regular who will be at the bar tomorrow night, too. Owner Mike Shaw used to give me huge contributions when I went begging for the local elementary school silent auctions, and I've loved him and his bar ever since. You want a dive bar? Head to Shaw's.”
“Both a tiki bar and a restaurant, this place is very popular. They serve alcoholic drinks in tiki glasses you can buy to take home. The interior is the kind of kitschy ambiance you might expect but the outdoor patio is set on the Mississippi river. Pizza, burgers, salads and appetizers are available for lunch and dinner. The weekend brunch is from 10-2.”
“Best coffee in town. Great food too. It's on the main level of one of the artists buildings in the area so there is lots of cool art displayed and in the corner there is often an artist working on something and you can watch.”
