A cafe, hotel and restaurant.

In a historic building within the first neighborhood of Minneapolis, Alma welcomes all guests with genuine hospitality and diverse, contemporary American cooking. We strive to create beautiful, casual environments worthy of celebrations and everyday visits, 7 days a week.

The Cafe and Restaurant are two distinct dining experiences. The Cafe is an easygoing "day & night" walk-in setting with bakery counter, a la carte menus and full bar. The Restaurant features a dinner only, seasonally inspired 3-course prix fixe menu, optional wine pairings and an extensive wine list. Private spaces are available for groups of 8 to 40. 

Located above the Cafe, Hotel Alma has seven guest rooms for overnight stay. Our comfortable, well-appointed spaces are appreciated by travelers looking for a vibrant urban location, as well as locals seeking a convenient getaway.

Alma has received regional and national acclaim, earning a James Beard Award for "Best Chef Midwest", and two national semifinal nominations in both "Outstanding Service" and "Outstanding Restaurant" categories. Local accolades include a 4-star rating from the Star Tribune, City Pages "Best Cafe 2018" and "Best Restaurant Minneapolis 2016 & 2017".

Alma strives to create a model of success by demonstrating excellence and sustainable practices in food, hospitality, job quality, and service to others.
