(OK OK, it's not *that* bad.) Instead, maybe embrace the java jubilee as an opportunity to check out one of a handful of hot, newish coffee shops that have cropped up around the Twin Cities in the last year or so – all of which are brewing something better than your average Joe.
Things with edible gold – EDIBLE GOLD!
Northern Coffeeworks: Minneapolis’ warehouse district’s newest cafe checks all the boxes: looky environment with lots of tile, cool concrete furniture, tasty eats – oh, and top-notch espresso and pourover coffee from the world over.
Think the original, with La Colombe draft cans, pretty matcha drinks and crepes – but even lovlier, with garage doors that open to the street and an extended food menu.
So go for the exposed brick and gorgeous teal backdrops, and stay for the 24k gold latte – complete with gold flakes – a treat that isn’t on the menu but has a city full of fans.
