We ate breakfast here on a weekday late morning. I have no idea how busy it is on the weekends but at 10 am on a Wednesday there was no wait. Staff were friendly and I ordered the Cajun breakfast and my boyfriend ordered the Tex Mex. Both meals had huge portions and amazing flavor for their size. My meal... More

My husband and I have been going to this cafe for years. Every few months we visit and are always happy. The service is friendly and genuine. It can get pretty crowded, especially on the weekends. But I think it's worth it. Excellent pancakes :)

This is a very popular cafe, at least for Sunday brunch. Lots of happy eaters, mainly but not all of them youngish. My wife and I met a friend there. He's a long time local so his recommendation carried the day. He recommended Eggs Benedict so my wife ordered that. It was ok, probably a 3.5 on a 5 point... More

Went here with the boyfriend prior to a family gathering. He had an omelette and said it was the best he has had. I had the cornbread pancakes and they were delicious! Would totally go back.

While shopping in St Paul the Neighborhood Cafe is a great place to take a break and enjoy good eats at a reasonable price! You're only problem will be choosing what to order. It all sounded so good! So we ordered both breakfast and lunch. Lol Loved their potato bacon cheese soup and turkey avocado on marble rye! Their chocolate... More

When we went into the Neighborhood Cafe on trip one, we were overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of the staff, the quantity and quality of the food, and also the fun that everyone seemed to have. So we went back to try something different and to try a different day and an evening meal (trip one was for lunch).... More

First time stopping at the neighborhood cafe- it is great find! From having a coffee in the tables out front, to the old school diner bar, this place has a comfortable and unique charm. The wait staff is friendly and the patio out back is perfect for lunch outside! Will definitely be coming back!

Small out of the chain, fast-food restaurant way. A fun restaurant with the best comfort food you'll ever find. Go once and you will be a regular. Try it.

We had excellent oatmeal here and there was plenty of good options for food in an atmosphere of local neighborly ease. They did not have any soy milk, however.

Found this place while shopping for light fixtures Saturday and took a chance; it was a jewel. A breakfast and lunch place with large sandwiches. So we shared a reuben and it was one of the best I have ever had. And it was plenty to eat, along with the fries, which were okay. Only negative for us was the... More
