Out late at night, working the night shift or can't sleep... and hungry? Don't want MacDonalds, Dennys or the Midwest's beloved White Castle? Here's where you can get food 24 hours from independent restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
An icon of St. Paul, Mickey's Dining Car at 36 West Seventh Street in downtown St. Paul is open 24 hours, 365 days a year for breakfast, burgers and classic American food.
Hard Times Cafe is a worked-owned and run cafe in Cedar Riverside serving vegetarian food and killer coffee. Not quite open 24 hours, just 22... they close between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. so should satisfy most late-night cravings.
