Elegant and comfortable, this historic workingman’s bar and cafe is a real piece of Minneapolis, featuring a magnificent copper-topped bar, with bottles stacked to the pressed-tin ceiling. Framed photographs of TC notables cover the walls. Beyond the bar, the long and narrow dining room features cushy burgundy booths and linen-draped tables.

With a devilish theme, expect breakfast standards with a delightful twist. Toasted sausage bread is a sweet-salty mix of bison sausage, currants, pecans and black coffee. Caramel-pecan rolls are made fresh. During lunchtime, try the ham, pear, Swiss and fontina melt and a slow-roasted pulled pork sandwich, zippy with chili-herb seasonings.
