I went during happy hour, so it wasn't expensive. $16 bought me a huge bowl of borscht, the happy hour gyro, and a class of Penya rose. Borscht was outstanding, gyro was not bad, rose was delightful. Waiter was attentive and very cheerful and nice. Will eat there again.

Loved this busy spot for lunch. In spite of it being packed we had great, quick service. Highly recommend the grilled salmon salad - would've tried one of the apps if we had more time. In and out in 45 mins over the busy Friday lunch hour.

This is a wonderful little wine bar / restaurant in Dinkytown. My husband and I often come here after University of Minnesota sporting events. We have never eaten a main course here but seeing all the food that they prepare for catering events I hope to try the menu soon. We usually go to enjoy the different wines they serve. I recently tried a Hungarian white wine. It was wonderful. We generally just sit at the small bar right inside the door. One of the things that really impresses me is the staff. They are always smiling. They truly seem to be enjoying their jobs. We have seen many different foods prepared here that are being transported to different events. The foods look and smell wonderful. We've seen fruits, main courses, desserts, salads, etc and they all look delicious. The dipping oil for the bread is the best I've ever tasted. Generally while enjoying our glass of wine, the owners will come out and visit with us. The owners are truly one of the main reasons for returning. They are so pleasant and fun to talk to. We have been treated to several of their desserts that they prepare for catering. Besides tasing so good, the way they are served is very eye appealing. Sadly we live two hours away from this establishment so we can't go as often as we'd like to. We do attend frequent sporting events on campus which then allows us to visit Kafe 421. This quaint little establishment is an absolute must to visit.

Great little independent restaurant in Dinkytown. Excellent rack of lamb which was nicely paired with a tomato based risotto and grilled asparagus. Good value as well.
