The Aster Cafe is adorable on the inside, but on such a nice day as today, I wouldn't think of sitting indoors if possible. Luckily, there was plenty of seating out on the beautiful patio with a nice mixture of shade and sunshine while we...More

After experiencing a not-so-friendly service at an adjacent restaurant, I stopped at the Aster Cafe. The food was good and the service was great! I would highly recommend the Aster Cafe for a wonderful casual lunch experience.

Service was very efficient and friendly. They have a small menu, so all the dishes are well prepared, but a little pretentious. Great draft selection and lots of hipster cocktails.

We chose the Aster for our first meal in Minneapolis and were not disappointed. The beet salad was the best i have ever eaten and the arugula flatbread with goat cheese was outstanding as well. We ate outdoors on a beautiful evening. This is a...More
