Not to be confused with West Side Saint Paul, the city of West Saint Paul actually looks pretty south when viewing it on a map, but hey, it’s a worthy area to cover none-the-less. The city's misleading name comes in part from the fact that it lies on the west bank of the predominantly north-to-south Mississippi River. Robert Street is the main drag in this area with some great spots to check out. And you know, since we’re covering it on our neighborhood series, we’ve compiled a list below.
