Our family is made up of carnivores, vegetarians and vegans... we were able to please every palette for a very reasonable price and the food was delicious. My only complaint about the food was the small portion size of the soup bowl. But the burritos...More

We were there for brunch, and it was delicious. We had to wait 10 minutes or so for a table, but there's a "waiting room" with newspapers to read, and once we got our table, we had quick service. It was entertaining to watch the...More

While the menu had some great ideas the execution left much to be desired. One dish was too salty, another over cooked, another very bland and it takes a lot for me to complain. We chose Modern Times because of its vegan options, which they...More

Went to breakfast here, and was anticipating a good healty vegitarian style meal, but was sorely disappointed. Wait was increadibly long and even though we arrived first, three other people were seated before us. I guess if you are a regular you get prefferenctial treatment....More

Good coffee, very good eggs benny; our portion was enough to share between two people. Lots of vegan/vegetarian options. Tried a chai as well, it was strong and had a lot of flavour. The building and decor are great, classic with splashed of modern art.

Everything I've tasted here is great with options for everyone. The service and atmosphere is solidly MPLS! Get there early (like, 15 minutes before they open) to avoid a wait, or come prepared to hang out in the busy/smallish hallway or outside.

Their menu is so unique, healthy and innovative! I had the beet and goat cheese scrabble with turkey sausage and it was amazing. The decor is very quirky and funky. Our server was friendly and efficient. We can't wait to go back. There was a...More

There is nothing fancy about this little restaurant but the people watching and the food is great. The majority of clientele are hipsters with lots and lots of tatoos. We got here pretty early on a Sunday morning and the place was packed. People waiting...More

How many days can I eat breakfast here? The menu is amazing and they deliver! Husband ate Southside Hash - big eater couldn't finish it even though he tried :) I had a butternut squash/egg dish that was delicious. Place is tiny, but you can...More
