Most people don’t know that the original Green Mill is right here on Saint Paul’s Grand Avenue. Kids eat free on Tuesdays from 4-8 p.m. and daily happy hour is from 3-5 p.m., where you can save on everything from appetizers, brews, wine and pizza.
Home, home on the range—the Iron Range, that is. This neighborhood pub on Grand Avenue serves up all your favorite classic northern Minnesota dishes, including porketta, pasties and chicken pot pie.
Heavenly Neapolitan pizza served fresh from a 900-degree wood-burning oven. Need we say more?
Grand Ole Creamery
Grand Ole Creamery is one of the essential Twin Cities ice cream shops — and it’s the perfect way to top off a day on Grand Avenue. When former President Obama visited Saint Paul in 2014, he made a stop at the Creamery. Swing by in the summertime—the line down the block says it all.
We’re pretty sure when you look up “icon” in the dictionary, there’s a picture of The Lexington next to it. If there’s not, there should be. The Lex was the place to be seen when it opened in 1935 and remains an esteemed neighborhood gathering spot today. They've even added a rooftop patio to boot.
