Great spot for lunch - fresh salads and tasty sandwiches & soups. My advice is to go early as it gets very busy.

We ate our first meal here because it was convenient to our hotel, the Hilton. Dave's downtown was recommended to us by the staff at the hotel and they seemed to be enthusiastic about how good the place was. We were able to quickly walk...to Dave's via the indoor transit system. I expected a diner but it was more like a burger restaurant. No table service. You order your meal - sandwiches, wraps, specials of the day (sold out when we arrived), and burgers. It is really a fast-food restaurant, which obviously works for the location in the office building complex. My veggie burger was just OK and Hubble's chicken wrap was good. I would not go there again, as we found many better places to go if and when we return.More

Turkey Chili oh so good. Fresh bread, I had roast beef sandwich. Was made to order, priced fairly and folks making were very familiar with their products. Homemade cookies was a treat

While the sandwich I ordered was OK, I found their menu board and ordering confusing (probably because I was a first-time visitor). Not a bad place but it honesty didn't strike me as outstanding in any way.

Dave's is well organized, menu on the board, order and out in a few minnits or sit and eat. VERY good food. My 3 egg omelette and 2 slices bread of choice choose veggies - 7.21 including tax. Only a short indoor walk from Hilton.

This restaurant is located inside one of the downtown buildings, connected to many others via the Skyway. The food was good and the service was great.

Stopped for lunch on a recent trip to downtown Minneapolis. This is cafeteria style and really nice variety on their menu. Order up front, pick up and bring to checkout. I had the chicken Caesar wrap and you can customize it as you order. Delicious...and fresh and way more than I could eat ....so two lunches in one! Sounds like a popular busy place for folks who live and work downtown.More

Good location for a decent lunch at a reasonable price. Not to far away from the Convention Center. Price-quality ratio OK.

Tried this place just by "seeing what's around" on GoogleMaps - and this has now turned into one of my favorite places to grab lunch during my time downtown. The sandwiches are delicious, portions of sandwich and sides are great for the price, and there...is always free water available to guests - but it's not just regular water - its all infused with some type of fruit! Yum!More
