Since moving to my new apartment a few months ago, I've been exploring my new neighborhood. Stopped in to check out 1 of many neighborhood coffeehouses in the area. What a delightful place! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere had a laidback feel to it. Had some ice cream. Will definitely go back to try some of... More

Ginkgo is getting old. I've known it for over 20 years and it hasn't changed much. But it's a nice little coffee shop near Hamline University that offers some decent coffee drinks, decent atmosphere and food of questionable quality. It's a popular place among locals , students, cabbies and cops. One can also buy some trinkets and memorabilia there ,... More

I've only visited Gingko's in the morning weekend hours, but the atmosphere has always been mellow and friendly. They have a great selection of baked goods/pastries to go with your steaming hot and fresh coffee. Nice little spot to get some work done at one of the tables or to read a good book on one of the sofas. Check... More

Good coffee and easygoing breakfast. A steady stream of clientele but the Gingko still felt relaxed. Great vibe/atmosphere inside. Also a sweet selection of oddball greeting cards to brighten a friend's day.

A decent little coffee house in Saint Paul. We had a meal with a vanilla shake. The prices are very reasonable. The sandwiches were your average heat and serve type but were still satisfying. The soup was really good. The vanilla shake was delicious and freshly made. The atmosphere was a little odd. They're set up for acoustic music at... More

For a "coffeehouse" Gingko serves a variety of food as well. We each had quite a good sandwich to go with our beverages. This appears to be a popular place for neighborhood residents and students but is worth a try from visitors to the area..
