I love the place. Lived next door to it for a few years, met some interesting people there, it's clearly a staple in the community, and the location is top-notch. It's pretty unassuming, and is the quintessential "order a coffee and a biscuit and spend the day there" spot. Other reviews are right about the prices being a little steep, but you pay for the vaulted ceilings and exposed brick, and enough elbow room even when seats are scarce. The nosey-neighbors, debating addict-philosophers, self-serious business lunches and screenplay-writers are all part of a coffee shop experience. Yeah, outlets are not at every table (though plenty available), because it's not an airport or a library. I gotta take a star off because they inexplicably stopped serving the Aztec sandwich (best thing by far on the menu), the decision to PAINT a bookcase on the back wall (with bones that beautiful why pretend?), and the so-great carrot cake is from the brilliant Isles Bun and Coffee in Uptown. The coffee is fine-to-good.

We had two soups (tasty!) and iced teas (good) tonight; pleasant staff and surroundings. The sound track here is so depressing and loud, we couldn't wait to get away! Has any business owner in this town ever heard of jazz, that music so accessible to all, and so appropriate for a nice coffee place like Nina's? We had our desserts at Cafe Latte, forgoing the delicious-looking items at Nina's, because we thought we'd start looking for an oven to stick our heads in.

I work down the street and eat at Nina's at least a couple times a week for lunch. I cannot say enough about the quality of food - their menu is not huge, but all the food is made fresh and I have never had a complaint. I would also add that their carrot cake is on my list of best carrot cakes in the Twin Cities - and this fat kid is definitely an expert on carrot cakes. The people are kind, the food is awesome and the coffee is hot... I don't know what anyone could find to complain about here! (I will note that if you are stopping in for an order To-Go, then call ahead. As is the case with freshly prepared food, the wait can be a little long if you are looking be in-and-out quickly. I have found that a quick phone call as you get ready to head down there makes all the difference if you are in a hurry.)

Fun, funky atmosphere. Not too loud. Great batistas and food. They have Moon Over Madagascar tea! And a cool bookstore in the basement.

I love the atmosphere--the building is super cool, historic, and Nina's is visually striking. The cookies and baked goods are great, but the food is so-so. I had a sandwich a few months ago that was okay, and recently had the worst "grilled" cheese I've ever had--it was barely warm cheese on not even fully toasted bread. I don't drink coffee, so it was disappointing that the chai latte tastes slightly like coffee. Staff are friendly, and they have some great live music, though!

Great coffee, atmosphere, and staff! They recently started serving bloody marys and they are definitely worth ordering. Seth the manager, alone is enough to visit the shop. :) Always a treat to visit Nina's!

Really cute cafe that serves a good assortment of food/drinks, coffee obviously being the staple drink here. Since it's a relatively popular place there are sometimes large crowds and long lines. However I never have any trouble finding an open seat and they have multiple sections where you can work without interuption. Wifi is fast as well.

Awesome coffee shop! Great atmosphere. Lots of tables, always busy, but never a long wait to order. Gluten free sandwich bread and snack options. Live music from time to time.
