I have been going to Steamworks in North Minneapolis since I was in High School [~9years and counting!] and love it. I went to Patrick Henry which is just a short few block walk. Our student prayer group discovered it shortly after it opened and would regularly go there for a quiet place to study and pray together.
As an adult we still go there for a quick treat or a meeting. They have Fabulous coffee and scones!
The owner is also a terrific man- very friendly, helpful and always involved in the community-- Did you know he is secretly Father Christmas? Yep, every year he dresses up for the neighborhood kids. He has also been known to donate generously to neighborhood groups and churches.
Two thumbs up for this great neighborhood treasure!
