Modern Times brings bright boho vibe to south Minneapolis

Menu is veggie-heavy, but who can forget those bacon pancakes?

The vegetarian sandwiches are based on a variety of protein options. Tempeh (cakes of whole fermented soy beans) that's firm but mild-flavored comes piled with enough grilled onion, green pepper, tomato, avocado, and melted Swiss cheese that you'll never miss the pork, chicken, or beef. Seitan (wheat gluten) is made in-house, and the satisfyingly chewy, bread-like sponge can be topped with a mess of griddled onions, peppers, mushrooms, and spinach, along with a swipe of plucky basil mayonnaise and a few garlic French fries thrown in for good measure.

The only downside to those fries—which come piled with heaping spoonfuls of minced garlic—is that they'll likely spoil your breath, which is better kept fresh to participate in the café's collective conversation. Whether you're an older customer reading the newspaper and expressing concern about neighborhood violence, or a young guest praising the Mickey Mouse pancakes, Modern Times welcomes all voices.
