Community Giving

One of our primary values is participation in and support of our local community.  We’ve hosted many fundraisers; provided free space and food for arts and community initiatives; contributed food and gift certificates for auctions, raffles and events; and hosted campaign nights for school board, city council, and other neighborhood political candidates.  We participate each year in Dining Out for Life and contribute 10% of our anniversary date sales to community food-related organizations.

We are proud to be part of the Northeast Minneapolis community!
