Angry Catfish Bicycles and Coffee: Strap the kids in the Burley and head over to this great spot in Minneapolis.

Black Dog Wine and Coffee Shop: We like this one for so many super obvious reasons (see business name…). Find them in Lowertown St. Paul.

Blue Ox Coffee Company: Fabulous community spot in the Powderhorn neighborhood in Minneapolis.

Caribou Coffee: Another great drive-thru goldmine and a great company started by local Minnesotans.

Dogwood Coffee: Two Minneapolis locations

Dunn Bros: Multiple area locations (bonus for drive-thru’s!) – they may have a ton of locations, but they are oh, so locally based.

Five Watt Coffee: Find them in the Kingsfield neighborhood in Minneapolis.

Groundswell: Tucked away in the Hamline Midway area in St Paul, this is an area favorite.

J&S Bean Factory: Find them in St. Paul!

Kopplin’s Coffee: All around fantastic St. Paul shop. They support other local businesses and give back to the community with every purchase.

Nina’s Coffee Shop: Adorable Friends-esque coffee shop in St. Paul. Perfectly local, but just how do you pronounce Nina? Ask the barista and it might surprise you!

Peace Coffee: Multiple locations – three in Minneapolis and one in Richfield.

Spyhouse Coffee: Four Minneapolis locations.

Turtle Bread Coffee: Classic little shop with some of the best treats in the 44th/France neighborhood in Minneapolis.

Urban Bean: Locations in Minneapolis – pure white gorgeous coffee space.

My village is friends that are just a text message away. They are friends that are always willing to drop their schedules to meet me for a Starbucks break. They are my village that have seen my messy, seen my worst, and have met me in it. They have embraced me as I am, encouraged me where I was at, and loved me through it all. They have seen me cry ugly tears into many a Starbucks, passed the tissues, and tightly hugged me. They have refused to let me mother alone, and instead, chose to mother along side of me. They have unashamedly wormed their lovely way into this introverted Mama’s life and have taught me that together we are stronger. For them I am grateful. Read More…
