The Coffee Shop NE… the ‘Cheers’ of Audubon Park

The Coffee Shop Northeast is one of those intimate coffee shops that immediately makes you feel at home… like you are already part of the neighborhood. I met new clients there on Thursday night just as I had met another client there a few weeks ago. I was again struck by the 'Cheers' feel of this neighborhood hub… very friendly and welcoming, a place where you go not just for coffee and food but also for comaraderie and to get a pulse on what is happening in the neighborhood. They've got it right when they say they serve coffee~treats~food~LOVE!


Thursday evening was December 1st, Johnson Street shopping night. As I walked towards the coffee shop I was greeted by the dazzling, colorful displays in A Bag Lady on the corner… and when I arrived at The Coffee Shop Northeast I was delighted to find some local artisans set up in the back of the shop. What an added treat to be able to get a start on my Christmas shopping!


If food prepared and served with love is the way to a person's heart the corner of Johnson and 29th is the Audubon Park neighborhood heart trifecta.

Not only do you have The Coffee Shop NE, but you also have Hazel's Northeast restaurant serving home cooked comfort food and Sarah Jane's old fashioned bakery providing fresh, delicious melt-in-your mouth goodies since 1979. When I stopped by Sarah Jane's on Saturday morning it seemed like everyone there was greeted by name. I couldn't resist picking up some divinity for my husband, it's his favorite holiday treat. Sarah Jane's divinity was some of the best we have ever had… soft, dense but also light, and divinely delicious!

It never ceases to amaze me how people who live in this neighborhood want to stay here! Audubon Park has homes of various ages and character, classic two-stories, tudors and bungalows built in the first half of the last century but also some mid century ramblers and one and a half story homes… with an average price of $146,975. It is bordered on the north by the lovely St. Anthony Parkway, a great place to walk, run and bike, and on the east by St. Anthony.

More than any other part of the city, people who want to live in Northeast Minneapolis know and pick their specific neighborhoods… and Audubon Park is often near the top of the list. See homes for sale in Audubon Park and find out why people love living here!
