If you live east of the Mississippi, there is no better place to shop small than St. Paul. Cruise down Grand Avenue, you won't be disappointed. But before you head there, swing by the intersection of Selby and Snelling. Then head south on Snelling (see: Poppy, Bleach). Back track a few blocks to Grand. (Have you seen The Californians skit on Saturday Night Live? I'm just mappin' it out for ya.)
Best advice right here: start your day with the proper sustenance. Grab some coffee at Cahoots. Try their Thai coffee (hot or iced) or one-of-a-kind Lavender Infused White Mocha. For a light breakfast, order the quiche. For heartier fare, hop next door to Neighborhood Cafe' - breakfast served all the livelong day.
