Best Corner (2014)

34th and Lyndale

Unless you're really into churches and gas stations, there's a dearth of excitement on Lyndale south of 32nd Street. However, one intersection consistently proves to be a golden nugget of fun. At this corner, you'll find the fabulous Bull Run Coffee Bar, which brews with a mighty bean selection. Crema Cafe does the impossible, offering delicious Sonny's Ice Cream along with beer and wine. They also have an adorable patio filled with flowers and plenty of shade from the sun. For fashionistas, June Resale offers high-end finds, while Belle Weather boutique sells gifts, purses, and other fun items. Music lovers can shop for gear or take lessons at Twin Town Guitars, and OM offers yoga classes. Painter Park, also found at this intersection, boasts a playground, tennis and basketball courts, a baseball field, and plenty of grass for picnics. With so much on offer, you never need to go anywhere else.
