Whether you're craving a slice of mac & cheese pizza at Mesa Pizza, or snacking and studying at the Purple Onion Cafe, you can find your perfect restaurant only a brief walk from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus.
Dinkytown, the neighborhood just north of the part of the East Bank of the Minneapolis campus, is always alive and bustling with students and faculty. The neighborhood features all the amenities a person could need: you can get a hair cut, grab some great food, take in a concert at the Varsity Theater, and even salsa dance at Loring Pasta Bar on Friday and Saturday nights.
Chilly Billy's, a recent addition to the Dinkytown landscape, is a great place to cool down during the summer. Located on 15th Avenue north of Folwell hall on the ground floor of the new Sydney Hall, Chilly Billy's offers self-seve frozen yogurt with great toppings. Last week, some members of the U of M Office of Admissions stopped in to enjoy a frozen treat and celebrate the beginning of summer.
So, the next time you are on campus don't forget to check out Dinkytown as well!
