10 Most Instagrammable Foods in Minneapolis

We love to eat, but we don’t love to cook.  Luckily, we are blessed to live in the Twin Cities which have endless restaurant choices for dining out.  Many of these incredible establishments may have their doors closed for dine-in but take-out is an option for all!

We scrolled Instagram for the best in food photography in Minneapolis.  Thank goodness there are plenty of foodies and restaurants who make our mouths water. They make the appeal of food creative and even—dare we say it—sexy.

Get ready to have your cravings satisfied in these 10 Instagrammable foods found in Minneapolis and the surrounding Twin Cities metro area.

Amy’s Cupcake Shop

These cupcakes speak to design and craft.  They melt in your mouth but are so beautiful, you are hesitant to take a bite.  Once you do, though, its heaven meets earth.

Murray’s Steak House

Bacon-wrapped Filet Minot from the best steak house in Minneapolis? Makes it kinda difficult to go vegan when these temptations are offered in God’s country.

Tongue in Cheek

Put it in front of you and devour.  Let go of restrictions and give yourself permission to consume the beautiful food creations of Tongue in Cheek.

500 followers!!! We are SO very grateful for all of you who love our food pics!! We decided to celebrate with a trip to one of our favorite ice cream spots! @sebastianjoes This has always been a favorite of ours because the unique flavors that they consistently have on the menu! Our go-to is the Nicollet Avenue Pothole. It has chocolate, caramel, heath bar chunks, fudge truffles and a fudge swirl with sea salt! We also went out on a leap and tried something completely different. The Chocolate Coyote. If you like spicy, you’d love this one! It was a little too spicy for us, but still very very good! Thank you so much for getting us to 500!! We love you! 🍦 🍦 🍦 #mneats #mplseats #minneapolis #stpaul #stpauleats #landof10keats #twincities #minnesotaeats #bestfoodminnesota #eatdrinkdishmpls #foodieapolis #mnfoodie #minneapolisfoodie #bestfoodfeed #mysaintpaul #goodeatsmn #fillyourcupupmn #stpaulfoodie #eatertwincities #tastesofmn #visitstpaul #bestfoodtwincities #experiencemsp #getfeatured #datenightdinemn #mnfoodieblog #mndatenight #huffposttaste #myfab5

Sebastian Joe’s

What can’t we say about Sebastian Joe’s? Truth be told, it has the best ice cream in Minneapolis. 


Hi-Lo Diner

Hi-Lo Diner knows how to cook and present.  It is so pretty, you hate to ruin it by eating.  Take your Instagram photo before to save it for the memories.

Hamburguesas El Gordo

All we know about this joint is they know to take influential photography of their food.  It draws us to their establishment to try unique burgers we can’t create at home.


It’s a lot of Mediterranean food but we are up to the challenge. Each food item in this photograph leaves us begging for more.



It’s a diner where the portions are enormous and the pricing is fair.  Family-owned and thriving for years, they know how to show us the best they have available for their loyal patrons.  You can’t resist snapping a picture of their mouthwatering cinnamon roll.

Today @FoodSmithPub in West St. Paul opens. I was invited by @eatminnesota to join her at their soft open to try some of their cocktails and menu items last week and I have to say this Gastropub is a welcome addition to this neighborhood. Serving a variety of sandwiches, shareables and entrees. My favorite bite being their Dutch Bitterballen which are little bits of stew like meat with vegetables coated and fried served with a berry mustard sauce. The winning cocktail, for me, that night was their Al Capone Connection which uses @jriegerco Whiskey, Ginger Liqueur, and Bitters. If your in the area and hungry make sure to check out this family run spot! ______________________________________________ #mncocktail #cocktail #drinks #bartender #🍸 #beer #CraftBeer  #minneapolis #mpls #craftcocktails #mn #drinklocal #madeinmn #eatdrinkdishmpls #oldfashioned #whatsnewmn #newresturant #weststpaul

Food Smith Pub

We love the simplicity of this photo for Food Smith Pub.  It proves they can make a satisfying drink for us that we can savor.

Bread and Pickle

A staple bagel sandwich if you are daring enough to try.  We have been afraid of going out of the comfort zone.  This photo assures us that some of our greatest pleasures can be found if you are willing to take a risk.


We can’t wait to get back to our normal dining experiences.  For now, we are allowed time to research establishments we may have never known.  Through the power of Instagram photography, we can see what special creations are waiting for us once they are back in business!
