What You'll Get
Coffee continues to be the most efficient fuel for the human body's complex system of fuel injectors, auxiliary hearts, and flux capacitors. Fill up your flesh tank with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of eats and drinks at Corner Coffee, located two blocks from Target Field.
Corner Coffee's menu serves up specialty coffees and teas alongside hearty breakfast and lunch fare in an artsy, unpretentious environment. The boisterous baristas make all the shop's specialty coffee drinks (prices vary according to size) from beans that have been locally roasted by the Minneapolis Coffee Company. Take an appropriately slow sip of the Tortoise (a combination of caramel, hazelnut, and mocha), savor the flavor of Wonderland with the Queen of Hearts (a raspberry-infused white mocha), or sample the Grasshopper, which gives sippers the ability to deliver devastating kicks on their robotic hind legs. Caffeine-fueled cravings can be sated along the way with chili or soup ($3.75 for a cup, $4.60 for a bowl); made-to-order sandwiches in half ($3.80) or whole ($6.60) options; breakfast sandwiches served on toast or a croissant with egg and your choice of meat and cheese ($4.95); made-to-order salads, and a variety of pastries and snacks. A kids' menu of sandwiches served with goldfish crackers is available for tots, as well. Both breakfast and lunch are served all day, making this the go-to place for a DIY brunch, as well as its less popular variant, leakfast.
Housed in a down-to-earth brick building with wood floors, orange sofas, and patio seating, Corner Coffee features live music on Friday nights with free parking and no cover charge, which frees up capital to buy some of the local art adorning the walls. Corner Coffee's proximity to Target Field also lets poets pretend that the roar of nearby crowds is for them as they pen their latest dirty limerick, dirty haiku, or particularly challenging dirty sestina.
Although there aren't many online reviews for Corner Coffee at this time, five Yelpers give it a four-star average, and four Google Mappers and three Citysearchers give it a perfect five-star average rating.
- The americano is PIPING hot (like, molten lava hot) made fresh and flavorful. Coffee and iced coffee is also good - like any normal joint, they have a few different roasts available at any time. – Val B., Yelp
