Longfellow Life is an independent project providing a directory of local businesses, services, and community organizations in the greater Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis, stretching from the Greenway and along East Lake Street to the Mississippi RIver to Minnehaha Parkway to Hiawatha Avenue.

Longfellow is is both a friendly neighborhood and lively area with shops and culture from old school to new school. While the days of the old Lake Street Garage restaurant, the hole-in-the-wall Town Talk Diner, and Embers are long gone, new food options have opened up from the innovative Mexican offerings of Sonora Grill to the old-time standards at the Hi-Lo Diner.

Directory listings are sourced from public resources in print and online, and by on-site surveys throughout the neighborhood. While we strive to keep Longfellow Life up-to-date and accurate, no guarantee nor warranty of listing information is promised. If you have any questions or concerns about a listing, whether you are a business owner or a customer, feel free to Contact Us about it. We’d love to hear from you!
