There might be a million joints that flip flapjacks in this town, but you're not truly a Minneapolitan until you've eaten the ones at Al's Breakfast in Dinkytown. Crammed into a former alleyway, the 10-foot wide, 14-stool diner has become a local institution in the past 50-plus years. Regulars know the drill: Queue up behind the seated diners as you wait for an empty stool, and be prepared to shift seats to group freed seats together for new parties. For all the hassle, diners are rewarded with cheap, tasty eats, including eggs-any-way, hash browns, and delightfully fluffy buttermilk pancakes that nearly fill the plate.
