As its ubiquitous, chic loft condominiums suggest, the North Loop is quickly becoming a hot spot for trendy Minneapolitans. Bordered by the new Twins Stadium to the southwest, Hennepin Avenue to the southeast, Plymouth Avenue to the northwest, and the Mississippi River to the northeast, the heart of this warehouse-district-in-metamorphosis is increasingly popular for its budding food scene, which includes a number of Best Of winners. In case you've missed all the excitement, here are our 10 favorite spots to grab a bite in the North Loop.

Much of the renaissance of the North Loop can be attributed to the location of Target Field, and nothing goes with sports quite so well as wings and beer. Luckily, Runyon's is located just a short walk away from the home of the Twins, and it features some of the best hot wings this side of Buffalo. They come slicked with a spicy, vinegary sauce that offers a more authentic experience than your local Buffalo Wild Wings. A half order of wings with a half order of fries should be enough to fill most bellies, but ordering the full plate with a group of friends on the way to the game is the ideal experience.

Moose & Sadie's has been in the North Loop for years, and transformed right along with it. When it opened up in 1991, in a part of town then better known as the Warehouse District, it was the first coffee shop around. When Birchwood Cafe alum Susan Muskat came on board as chef in 2005, it became one of the only area lunch spots serving up fare beyond tots and tacos. Today, the airy cafe remains a kind of palate cleanser between the fancier restaurants sprouting up around it, a place for a casual brunch, a working lunch, or just a quick cup of coffee from the counter. While Moose & Sadie's offers a comfortable hang-out spot and a reliable internet connection, it also serves up fresh pastries from its bakery, locally sourced ingredients, and full breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus that rotate weekly. Up this week: sweet corn polenta, roasted pork loin sandwiches, and pizza specials overflowing with seasonal veggies. Don't say this neighborhood standby can't keep up with the new kids.
