MissesAwesome:  Which Twin City are you staying in? I can tell you which neighborhoods, to a point, to avoid staying in. Where is the wedding?

There are some yummy Thai places around that always offer vegetarian choices. Supatra’s in St Paul, Spice Thai in Burnsville is killer, and Sawatdee has a couple locations. Those are ones I’ve been to. I also just looked on Yelp and there are a ton of restaurants listed under vegetarian/vegan.

MissesAwesome:  I am not from the Cities, but love 3 hours away. My sister lives in the Cities (New Brighton now), but used to live in St. Louis Park. So close to downtown Minnepaolis, which is MY favorite!!

Is the wedding in Minneapolis? Hit upt downtown… so much fun to walk. Nicollet Mall shopping!!

I am not a good one to ask about vegan places, but just search Vegan and Minneapolis… and you’ll find a TON of places to eat. I love going to new places each time I visit. I’ll be there next month for the Twins Home Opener.

I live in Minneapolis.  Unless you actually want to shop, Nicolett Mall isn’t all that exciting from a people-watching perspective.  There are a ton of great restaurants — I’d recommend Spoon & Stable in particular, but you have to make a reservation long in advance (not sure about Vegan options there but the food is really good).  If the weather is nice while you’re in town, I love the St. Anthony Main/Riverfront area (Stone Arch Bridge, Aster Cafe, etc.)  Twins game at Target Field is always fun if you like baseball and if they’re playing then.

MissesAwesome:  Nicollet Mall is actually a street downtown, and has LOADS of shopping and places to eat! You can people watch while you’re walking, but yeah… not like a mall where you could just sit somewhere with a coffee and see the surroundings. Hopefully it’s nice weather!

If you’re heading to St. Paul, Grand Avenue is fun – a lot of cool little shops and places to eat. Downtown St. Paul isn’t too far away from Grand and has museums (History Center, Science Museum) as well as some landmarks like the Capital building and Cathedral of Saint Paul. Uptown in Minneapolis will also have a huge variety of shops and restaurants.Β

Emilys Lebanese Delicatessen has the best tabouleh if you like that. It was my favorite growing up and I still crave/miss it. Minnehaha Park was another my favorites – a little bit of nature in the city (plus a waterfall). 

If your interested in landmarks, etc. The Minnesota Museum of Art, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, American Swedish Institute are all worth a visit. Hennepin Ave and Nicolett with have a large variety of restaurants.
