With the Rathskeller Cafe and other state cafeterias currently closed, hungry Minnesota State Capitol visitors will have to venture out to find food.

  • Here are some nearby suggestions:

πŸ›’ Lunds & Byerlys at the Penfield offers ample sandwiches and snacks, plus salad and hot bars. There's also a Caribou Coffee. Bonus: Free (covered) parking.

🍳 St. Paul College, a 10 minute walk from the dome, has a grill staffed by culinary students, as well as a coffee shop and cafeteria.

🍜 Pho Ca Dao on University is a bit of a walk, but the noodles promise to warm you right up.

πŸ” Food trucks often park along John Ireland Boulevard as the end of session nears. We're crossing our fingers that they return ASAP.

🍫 The vending machine at the start of the tunnel to the Senate Office Building is a reliable last resort. Accepts small bills and coins only.
