"If you are looking for a casual place to eat . . . one that serves fresh, home-cooked food with a modern sensibility, add Kafe 421 to your list. Noticeably more subdued and less expensive than most other restaurants with food standards this high, 421 has something for everyone. [Owner Georgia Sander] keeps the "world pantry" combination of ingredients flowing along smoothly, focusing on Latin or Mediterranean flavors. For those on a budget, the sandwich list is creative and extensive . . . Keeping everyone happy seems to be Kafe 421's forte." Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

I’m so so sorry it’s closing, but I’m happy to hear that it will continue its catering services. My husband and I split a large mezethes (appetizer) plate at Kafe 421 two nights ago and it was phenomenal. I could envision ordering that exact same array of tasty morsels for a dinner party or literally any kind of mid-size event. Nevertheless, the restaurant will be missed. Thanks to the great owner and equally great staff!

I have been going there for MANY years, for both lunch and dinner, and everything that I have ordered was amazing!! I so enjoyed dining here that I have recommended it to many of my friends and colleagues, who after dining there, were always ready to return! Georgia, the owner, was always present and made it a point to walk around the restaurant to greet and talk to her patrons. I was VERY sad to hear that Kafe 421 will no longer be open as a restaurant after July 31, 2019. They will be closing and concentrating on their catering side of the business. Kafe 421, Georgia, her daughter and their employees will be sorely missed!!

Now my husband is trying to figure out where he will ever be able to order bouillabaisse again. Our best wishes to Georgia and Antigone and they concentrate on their catering business.

The borsht is incredible - eggplant ...welll, everything. Portions are perfect. They actually put bread and olive oil on the table for FREE! Wines are good and NOT the usually over priced. THE FOOD IS SPECIAL!

All we knew was the menu had some items that sounded good (at a very quick glance), and that it was downtown. Turned out to be right near the U. Appears to be a place where parents take their U student to dinner. The menu is extensive and overly ambitious. It has some odd combinations (red curry served with french fries?). There is definitely "something for everyone", but that usually means that nothing is done superbly. We found that to be true in this case. The service was very accommodating. However, we will likely not return.

The food was beautifully presented and well prepared. All encounters with staff were pleasant and cheerful. Because it was a cold and snowy night I ordered a pot of tea which made our cozy dining experience even more enjoyable. Looking forward to another meal there again soon.
