Best Dinkytown Coffee Shop: Espresso 22

In a very close tie with Purple Onion, Espresso 22 wins out because they don't charge extra for soymilk. I've been a customer at Espresso 22 for many years, but have a newfound appreciation for the place since the start of the Minneapolis smoking ban. Located inside the Dinkydome (pictured here), Espresso 22 also offers cheap vegetarian food options. The clientele are a bit more alternative than the Starbucks crowd, which I also appreciate. With my new job in Folwell Hall, just across the street from Espresso 22, I reckon I'll be a more steady customer. We need small independent coffee shops like Espresso 22. The planet has enough Starbucks.
