The Midwest is the land of the hearty breakfast, and Minneapolis is no exception. The city provides plenty of options for early dining, many of which go far beyond traditional American breakfast fare. Whether you’re looking for a French-accented omelet, a spicy Southwest feast, a refined eggs Benedict or a pancake the size of a hubcap, there’s a restaurant in Minneapolis to feed your morning craving.

Keys at the Foshay Tower

Keys is arguably the most popular breakfast spot in downtown Minneapolis. Head there any morning and you’ll find an egalitarian mix of families, retirees and power-breakfasters with their neckties over their shoulders. Keys is beloved for its platter-sized pancakes, as well as the three-egg omelets with hash browns, huevos rancheros and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Joe's Garage

Joe’s Garage is only open for breakfast on Sundays, but it’s well worth the wait. Joe’s serves an upscale breakfast, with entrees such as smoked brisket hash, ciabatta French toast with mascarpone, a ratatouille omelet with chevre and three varieties of eggs Benedict. If it’s a warm summer morning, try to get a seat on their open-air rooftop deck, which overlooks the famous stone facade of the Basilica of St. Mary.

Sunny Side Up Cafe

This cozy, busy Uptown spot infuses its Midwest breakfasts with Southwest flavor. Try the “cowboy torte” of green chile layered between corn tortillas, the biscuits and gravy with thick chunks of sausage, or the Santa Fe French toast, which is crusted with cornflakes for a sweet crunch. The restaurant’s cheery interior, with its whimsical mural of desert critters frying up a campfire breakfast, is the perfect antidote to a dreary winter morning.

Victor's 1959 Cafe

Victor’s calls itself “a little piece of Havana in South Minneapolis, ” and the locals have been flocking there for breakfast for more than ten years. Victor’s offers three kinds of pancakes-mango, corn, and banana-and an array of Cuban-flavored egg dishes. If you wake up hungry, order the Bistec Criollo, a sauteed, sliced steak served in a citrus mojo with onions and peppers.

Entrees include a fruit-and-nut pancake, a gigantic breakfast burrito, daily omelets and quiches, and bowls of the bakery’s granola.
