Modern Cafe

337 13th Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413 | Northeast Minneapolis | 612-378-9882

Location Description:

The pot roast at the Modern is the stuff of legend. The fries and breakfasts are tops, too. And the fact that you can get beer and wine? That's the sprinkles on top of the cherry on top of the whipped cream on top of the sundae. Is the Modern the absolute perfect definitive postmodern diner? Heck, yes, and stay out of our booth.
