Quixotic Café on Ford Parkway

Our first stop is the Quixotic Café, located on Ford Parkway and Cleveland Avenue. This coffee shop is a favorite among university students, thanks to its convenient location near several campuses. As I stepped inside, I was immediately drawn to the smooth aroma of freshly brewed coffee. I opted for a medium roast that was perfectly balanced and not overly bitter.

What sets Quixotic Café apart is its unique seating arrangement. Unlike most coffee shops with open tables, Quixotic offers cozy booths and even private meeting rooms in the back. This is the kind of place where you can see yourself spending a leisurely Saturday morning, lost in a good book or deep in thought. Quixotic Café truly lives up to its reputation as one of the best coffee spots in St. Paul.

Nina’s: A Slice of History on Selby Avenue

Our next destination is Nina’s, situated on Selby and Western in St. Paul. This coffee shop holds a special place in my heart as it’s conveniently close to my home. The building that houses Nina’s dates back to 1889 and is located in the historic Cathedral Hill area. While Selby Avenue might be overshadowed by nearby Summit Avenue and Grand Avenue, it boasts a rich cultural scene and some fantastic dining options.

Legend has it that Nina’s was named after Nina Clifford, renowned for running an upscale brothel in the late 1800s. Today, the café offers a cozy and inviting atmosphere that draws visitors from all walks of life. If you can’t find a seat on the main floor, be sure to check out the loft area. It’s a hidden gem with a quiet atmosphere, perfect for studying, writing, or simply enjoying your cup of coffee. Nina’s is definitely a standout among St. Paul’s coffee shops.


Swede Hollow: Rustic Charm in Dayton’s Bluff

Our final stop is Swede Hollow, located off 7th Street in St. Paul. Nestled in the Dayton’s Bluff area, this coffee shop offers a charming rustic ambiance. Although it is temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, Swede Hollow remains a beloved local haunt. When it was open, I frequented this café as it was recommended to me by a friend. It started as a simple neighborhood spot but quickly gained popularity.

Stepping into Swede Hollow feels like stepping back in time. Housed in an old building with exposed brick walls, the café exudes a delightful charm. Recently, they expanded to include an upstairs area and an outdoor patio, which is often bustling with customers during the warmer months. If you’re visiting St. Paul or looking for a new coffee spot, Swede Hollow is one not to be missed.
