Even Our Ingredients Have A Short Commute.
To bring our guests a fresh dining experience, we source locally grown ingredients from sustainable farming when available to meet demand. Porter Café conveniently sits in the heart of the historic Mill District of downtown Minneapolis, nestled among the river parkway trails and Stone Arch Bridge spanning the Mississippi River.
You’ll find us walking distance from the Guthrie Theatre, MacPhail Center for Music, Mill City Museum, Mill Ruins Park, Mill City Farmers Market, St. Anthony Falls Visitor Center, Central Mississippi Riverfront Regional Park, Gold Medal Park, The Loft, Open Book, U.S. Bank Stadium, and The Commons.
