The Kingfield neighborhood was farmland in the late 1880s when Colonel Willam S. King donated Lake Harriet and surrounding land to the City of Minneapolis. Dupont Avenue now becomes a divided parkway named King's Highway between 36th and 46th Streets next to Col. King's Lyndale farmstead… and farmland between 36th and 46th, Lyndale and I-35W became the official Kingfield Neighborhood, a residential area of mostly single family homes built before 1920.

Today the Kingfield neighborhood is becoming more and more in demand for its historic homes of character without being grandiose… and its location with easy access to both the city lakes and downtown Minneapolis. But perhaps even more, it has become a veritable gastro-hood, teeming with notable eateries within walking distance of most homes in the neighborhood. The blue dots on the map above indicate just some of restaurants, bakeries, pubs and cafes in the neighborhood.

With fabulous variety… from Kyatchi sushi bar… to revolutionary Cuban cooking at Victor's 59 Cafe… to burgers and comfort food at Lowbrow… to Latin fusion at Cafe Ena… to pan-Asian at King's… to exquisite French pastries at Patisserie 46… to farm-to-table at Blackbird… to Spanish bistro at Rincon 38… to artisan breads and more at Sunstreet Bakery… to familiar Bruegger's Bagels… and more… there is something for every taste! It has enough choices to feel lucky to live in the neighborhood… and enough laudable choices to be worth crossing a freeway or two to visit!
