Maria's Cafe

1113 E. Franklin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55404 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-870-9842

Location Description:

Consider yourself a connoisseur of all things flapjack? Well buddy, you haven't lived unless you've had one of Maria's famed corn pancakes, plate-sized, finger-thick fellows as brown as wrens, as plump as puddings. No wonder people make the counterintuitive pilgrimage from Wayzata to Phillips just for an order of the beauties. Other highlights? Vegetarians do backflips for the lemony marinated eggplant sandwich, and that dark and bitter Colombian-style flan inspires pilgrimages of its own.
