Broders' Cucina Italiana

2308 W. 50th St. Minneapolis, MN 55410 | Edina | 612-925-3113

Location Description:

Back in the dark days of the early 1980s, visionaries Tom and Molly Broder founded a fragrant little empire of handmade pastas, imported olive oils, olives, cheeses, meats, vinegars, and other high-quality imported ingredients. Local gourmets were exceedingly pleased. But when they added spicy, jazzy pizzas by the slice, sandwiches, take-out homemade pasta sauces like a caper-rich puttanesca, and deli treats from grilled asparagus (seasonally) to just-piped cannoli, there was veritable dancing in the streets. Nowadays the little gourmet shop ranks as one of Minneapolis's most beloved spots--so go early, it gets packed.
