Located in a historic building within the first neighborhood of Minneapolis, Alma has been welcoming guests with authentic hospitality and diverse contemporary American cooking for nearly two decades. We offer a casual, comfortable environment worthy of both celebrations and everyday visits, 7 days a week.

Alma now offers two distinct dining experiences: The Cafe and Restaurant. The Cafe is an all-day, a la carte, walk-in setting with bakery counter and bar and table service. The Restaurant features 3-course prix fixe price menu for dinner only.  

We also offer seven guest rooms for overnight stay. Our comfortable, well-appointed spaces will be appreciated by travelers looking for a vibrant urban location, as well as locals looking for a convenient getaway.

Restaurant Alma opened in 1999 by Chef Alex Roberts in a historic firehouse and an adjacent speedboat factory. Alma, Cafe and Hotel opened in 2016. All of our spaces were reimagined and designed by James Dayton Design and Talin Spring of Spring Finn & Co.

Our approach toward the operation of Alma is truly collaborative, and we believe that every single member of our team is integral to our success. We are committed to creating a learning environment where all staff can thrive.
