Neighborhood Series: St. Louis Park
Posted by VIBE Realty on Wednesday, February 16th, 2022 at 4:00pm.
We’re excited to begin covering suburbs in our neighborhood series! First on the list — St. Louis Park. This neighboring suburb just minutes west of downtown Minneapolis offers a convenient location and small-town charm. It’s the perfect setting for experiencing the metro region without all the hustle and bustle. With no shortages of places to eat or things to do, we’ve covered some of the best of St. Louis Park below.
Punch Bowl Social
You won’t find a more entertaining spot than Punch Bowl Social. Introducing an excellent line-up of activities from bowling, karaoke, bonzini, foosball, giant Scrabble and Jenga, ping pong, or vintage arcade games — this spot quite literally has it all. Their menu isn’t lacking either. Grab some classic breakfast or slow braised ribs before or after you engage in an afternoon of fun.

Hope Breakfast Bar
Originally featured on our West 7th St. Paul neighborhood spotlight, we were delighted to see another location recently open in Saint Louis Park! At Hope Breakfast Bar, creative breakfast options are served all day long. Try a sweet treat like their German chocolate pancakes or banana churro waffle. Feeling savory? Try their cheese french toast or bourbon smoked salmon toast. We weren’t kidding when we said creative options. So where does the hope come in you ask? 3% of sales goes to help the local community. Can’t beat that.

The Loop located at West End offers all the vibes with a classic American menu. They are also a great brunch option (because we never grow tired of brunch.) Their signature breakfast sandwich features house-made breakfast sausage and a sweet kick of tabasco honey. Don’t forget to add an order of their house-made mini cinnamon rolls.
