We arrived on Thursday evening and made our way from the fabulous Foshay tower, W Hotel, to Nicolette Mall two blocks up. There we found Brit's Pub and Eating Establishment, a gorgeous british pub replica complete with cherrywood paneling, roaring fireplaces, and button-dimpled leather armchairs.

Speaking of guilty pleasures, my number one of all time may indeed be the next thing on our Minneapolis eating list...cinnamon rolls. I'll admit it now, if I could eat one thing for the rest of my life and have no repercussions, a glorious piping hot sugar, cinnamon, doughy mess the size of a toddler's head, kissed with a stream of cream cheese glaze would win hands-down.
Welcome to Isle's of Bun and Coffee on 28th and Hennepin, Uptown, a one room establishment where mixing, assembling, baking, and selling happens each day like a sugar dance. My fantasy bake shop looks just like this place, and the buns headline the dream. We hit this place on the morning of day two in Minneapolis, and couldn't help but return on our last day before hustling to the airport.

|Took me about 20 minutes to eat mine...too good to last. Alex had a bun, and Al had Pizza.|
