Neighborhood Series: North Saint Paul

Posted by VIBE Realty on Thursday, May 12th, 2022 at 3:21pm.

North Saint Paul is a distinct area (considered more of its own city than a neighborhood) located Northeast of downtown Saint Paul, and has great historical context and charm. The structures are older, including a downtown stretch of storefront with a six block long Main Street. Silver Lake and Casey Lake are the area’s largest bodies of water and both have adjacent parks great for a weekend stroll. Being a historical spot, North Saint Paul boasts the oldest continuously operating bar in Minnesota, Neumann's Bar, highlighted below. Check out other known local spots and hole-in the-wall gems on our compiled list.


Neumann’s Bar


Head to Neumann’s bar for a blast to the past, located in the historic downtown area. They opened for business in 1887, and have continuously operated as an establishment serving ever since. They even pulled through during Prohibition and opened a speakeasy upstairs. Visitors can still go upstairs and see the keyhole door used to screen entrants, and the old telephone that was connected to the downstairs bar so that messages could be passed back and forth.

LUV Ice Cream

If you’re keto, vegan, (or just looking for some treats sans all the guilt) LUV Ice Cream is the spot for you. They offer boldly flavored ice cream and non-dairy frozen desserts without added sugar or artificial chemical extenders. Owners Susanna and Ilya put out their own Minnesota made recipes that have been years in the making.

The Brother’s Bistro

The Brother’s Bistro bar and restaurant is a go-to for a true American breakfast. The best part? Served all day. Their menu comes from tried-and-true family recipes featuring hearty biscuits and gravy or their signature “The Brothers Breakfast.”

Candy’s Cafe & Catering

Located in an unassuming house storefront, this low-key spot is a local favorite. A family owned business known for their chicken and waffles and taco Tuesdays, you can’t get much better than their reasonably priced menu. You can also take them up on their catering services which has raving reviews.

Roddy’s Bar & Grill

Vikings game on your radar? Roddy’s Bar & Grill is a great place to post up at and enjoy some football. With a good amount of TVs both up and downstairs, a sports fan is bound to be happy here. With dart boards, skee ball, pool and pull tabs, you won’t stay sitting for long. Your classic sports bar experience.

Their homemade thin crust pizza is crafted with tangy sauce and plenty of real cheese. Also on the menu are other American classics - french fries, broasted chicken, burgers and more.

Silver Lake Park is located south of I-694 along Century Avenue and resides on land originally purchased by Captain Henry Castle in 1872. It is a regional destination park in the neighborhood with a swimming beach, fishing pier and playground.

Casey Lake Park

The vast 33-acre Casey Lake Park is coined as the crown jewel of the North Saint Paul parks system. With updated construction in 2016, there is now an indoor park facility and renovation to the adjacent Booya Building and picnic shelter. With adjacent baseball fields, hockey rink, biking and walking trails, there is plenty to do at Casey Lake Park.
