10 Of Our Favorite Restaurants In Little Canada, MN (Reviews)

Guy Fieri may have never stopped in Little Canada during any of his FORTY STOPS to Minnesota Diners, Drive-Ins, or Dives, but that’s ok; he doesn’t know what he’s missing.

Little Canada is home to dozens of awesome places to grab a bite, and the location is bar-none, nestled right between some of the most major highways in the area. As a local contractor, you can definitely find us there grabbing lunch or a nice dinner on the weekends. Check out some of the local favorites!

1- Porterhouse Steak and Seafood 🥩🍤

If you’re looking for a classic steak house to satiate your meat-tooth, Porterhouse Steak and Seafood is THE place. They have everything from Nova Scotia lobster tails to Atlantic salmon and amazing Ribeyes that you won’t regret indulging in. And you’d be remiss not to start things off with their burrata bruschetta— yum!

Real Customer Review: “Filet Mignon melted in your mouth! The bruschetta was amazing 🤩 great service from the waitress; nice and pleasant, with smiles on her face the whole time. Pleasant experience.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2- Eastside Pizzeria 🍕

Remember growing up and having that one pizza place that served huge, cheesy thin-crust pizzas cut into squares? Well, get ready for a big taste of nostalgia because Eastside Pizzeria will bring those memories rushing back. These pizzas are loaded with toppings and cut into the perfect squares where you get all the toppings in every bite. They also serve wings that have a dozen sauce options. You really can’t go wrong.

Real Customer Review: “I’m so lucky to live near my new favorite pizza joint! Everything about Eastside Pizzeria (Little Canada location) has been fantastic! I’ve only been there five times for takeout, but every time it has been perfect! Great crust, awesome sauce, and very good toppings. The only thing better than the pizza is the owners and employees. It’s a must😎” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

3- Hoggsbreath 🍗

Hoggsbreath is not just a tasty restaurant but also a bar, game room, and event space. They have an outstanding menu, happy hours every day, weekend DJs, a game room with pool and darts, and Cosmic Bingo every Saturday night! Make sure you try their Bloody Marys stacked high with all the fixings you could dream of.

Real Customer Review: “My favorite place for delicious meals, morning mimosas, and pool tables! The staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. I love bringing my out-of-town guests here as well!” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

4- Caravelle Restaurant 🍜

Caravelle Restaurant has a location in Minneapolis and Little Canada— both of which serve some of the absolute best Vietnamese food in the Twin Cities. Their extensive menu has everything from deep-fried quail to steamed shrimp dumplings, and they’re well-known for their amazing Pho selection. It’s one of our favorite places to go when we have a cold! Some nice hot Pho burns it right out. Highly recommend it!

Real Customer Review: “Best chicken pho in the twin cities, full stop. Food was cooked fresh to order and was bagged up neatly so that I could carry it easily. Spring rolls were also phenomenal. You can tell they really care about the quality of the food and their service as it was sublime as well! Will be back for more soon.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5- Taste of Scandinavia Bakery and Cafe 🍰

So what makes this bakery and cafe Scandinavian? Yes, they have basic cakes, pastries, and muffins, but what makes them so unique is their European and artisan bread and rolls and, of course, real potato lefse— yum. There’s nothing better than some real Scandinavian lefse with butter and sugar. They also cater and have some delicious sandwiches and snacks in their cafe.

Real Customer Review: “I love this place! If you like lefse, macaroons, pastries, cakes, or just want breakfast or lunch, this is the place to go. Try the Chocolate Crinkles Cookies! They’re delicious!” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

6- Little Venetian 🍝

The Vitale family has owned and operated Little Venetian since 2002, but it all started with a little vegetable stand on Rice Street in 1928. That little stand led to the opening of The Venetian Inn, which stood for an amazing 70 years until the building was bought and its doors closed in 2001. It didn’t take long for the family to reopen a place (Little Venetian) to keep the tradition alive, serving authentic Italian dishes and fare.

Real Customer Review: “Amazing!! It was delicious!! Entire staff was super friendly. The owner came out to ask us how we were doing. Had a cool old mafia vibe. Felt like I was in a restaurant from “Good Fellas.” HIGHLY recommend this place.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

7- El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant 🫔

Enchiladas, burritos, and tacos— oh my! That’s just one small portion of the extensive and delicious menu served up at El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant. With decades of experience, the head chef at El Sombrero makes some of the best Mexican food you can find in the Twin Cities. Their fajita menu alone is nearly endless, and you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. Be sure to check out this Little Canada hot spot!

Real Customer Review: “Great Mexican food that you can tell is cooked with love. Have been here several times and will continue to come back. Very cozy and clean atmosphere with pleasant and friendly service. A gem in this little strip mall.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

8- Flameburger 🍔

Flameburger is a local staple for that perfect small diner spot that has breakfast all day, flame-grilled burgers, and the most perfect crinkle fries. Open from 6am to 2am every day, you will find all walks of life throughout the day— people grabbing chicken fried steak after the bar or families coming in for burgers and shakes for lunch. It’s just good vibes, all around.

Real Customer Review: “This place is outstanding. Best burgers and breakfast food I’ve had in a while. The ambience is great, the staff is friendly and professional. 10 out of 10 for me.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

9- YO! Pizza and Fries 🍟

Carb lovers, rejoice! YO! Pizza and Fries has, yes, pizza and fries together in one place. Their custom pizzas are so delicious that you will definitely keep coming back for more. And their specialty loaded fries include gyro, cheesy bacon, and buffalo chicken— stacked high and are the perfect plate to share with some pals.

Real Customer Review: “Crispy, mouthwatering, crunchy and most delicately fried po-tay-to fries!!! Little Canada Fries, a must try!!! Best thing, across the border. Compliments to the Chef, thank you dearly 💕” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

10- El Taco Nazo Food Truck 🌮

Finally, we would fail you if we didn’t mention El Taco Nazo Food Truck. They may not have a website, but they have unbelievable food on-the-go that is so much better than any of the local drive-thrus— trust us. Head to 120 County Rd C West in Little Canada and get the best taco you’ve ever had, right from a truck.

Real Customer Review: “BEST TACOS IN THE TWIN CITIES!! We love the food at Taco Nazo. Everything from tacos, quesadillas, asada, fries, and burritos has a very delicious taste and is well served. They also cater. We highly recommend Taco Nazo and you won’t be disappointed.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had an excellent experience with Aquarius. Our plumber, Erik, was efficient and thorough. He made a complete assessment and gave me different options for the repairs I could make. He also prepared me for the costs of the repairs we knew we needed to make now as well as the repairs we will likely need to make in the future. I felt like I was able to make a good choice about what needed to be done today, and I’m ready for what to expect in the coming years as we care for and repair the 75-year-old house we love so much. I will absolutely use them again.

Had a very good experience with our plumbing needs as our service technician Gordy was very knowledgeable and provided solutions for our plumbing issue. Gordy also identified a couple of potential future issues and provided options and bids for those as well.I would recommend Aquarius Home Services to others based on my personal experience

Nick was very personable and professional at the same time. Staff was easy to work with in getting services scheduled. The reminders of the appointment were nice to have, the phone call when they were on their way is also nice. (Instead of waiting a 6 hour block and not knowing when they will arrive.)

Aquarius Home Services recently replaced our furnace and matching Air Conditioner in a one day job. Scheduling kept us informed on the arrival of each service person in the various trades and the project went smoothly and on schedule. All tradesmen were knowledgable, personable and considerate from the original sales person to the final walk through technician. I readily give them my highest recommendation.

A big thank you to Nick S. With Aquarius service. My heat pump was not working for cooling. Nick diagnosed that a power cord had gotten wrapped around the fan blade and wasn’t allowing it to spin. After removing the blade, disentangling the cord and re-threading it, he put it back together again. We fired it up and it works great now! I’ve worked with several people on the Aquarius team and they are all knowledgeable, friendly, and great to work with—Nick is no exception. Prompt, same day service, plus no charge for warranty work.

I had an old furnace that was on its last legs and needed to be replaced ASAP.Day one: Service Tech arrived 2 hours after initial contact with Aquarius. Sales Rep arrived within an hour of the request. Deal was made and installation appointment scheduled for the NEXT DAY!Day two: Contacted by the installation team at 7:00 am. Arrived at 7:30. Finished up by 2:30.All of the staff that I dealt with were friendly, professional and great to work with. They explained everything very well. I was expecting to wait 2-3 weeks for a new furnace and A/C. This was all done inside of two days. I would 100% recommend Aquarius to anyone needing any type of home service.Tall Mike, Mike Sippel, Chris Oigard, Dave and Luke it was great to work with you. Thanks for everything!Oh, they like dogs too.

All went well other than Mike was not made aware of the filters he needed so, new ones were not put in. He is going to have the main office either send or have your Mora guy drop them off. Hopefully, I will not have to wait days for this to happen. Not happy about the lack of not giving Mike the updated info. ( If mailed, I do not feel I should pay the mailing charges)Judi Huempfner

L❤️VE Aquarius!! We had the Kinetico water system installed a couple of years ago and it is the BEST!! Our furnace went out on us in December and Aquarius was out here the next day to give us a quote and by bundling it with a new AC unit we saved 25%!! Travis and a couple other guys came out and installed both our furnace and AC unit and was polite, informative and you would never have known anyone had been here as they left the house clean where they had been working. Today Travis came out to get our AC system started and to change our furnace filter and very kindly showed myself, my son and then my husband how everything works. We are now signed up for both the Kinetico water system service plan and now the furnace/AC service plan and with the discounts we get it actually basically pays for itself. Highly recommend Aquarius and Travis was great!!

Aquarius Home Services did the electrical work on a bathroom remodel in our downtown Minneapolis condo. The team was thorough and took the time to clean up the work area. It is challenging to find tradespeople that will work in multi-unit dwellings, and I will call on Aquarius in the future.
