Thank you everyone at Kafe 421! You have made the last 12 years for our family very special and memorable—your food and service have always been great! We love you all! 😎
This restaurant is a gem. It excels on every level— service, food, ambiance. 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!
Friends visiting from out of town
We had a great meal here. Too bad they are closing. Pita platter was terrific as well as the Atlantic Salmon
Goodbye and congratulations 421!
Kafe 421 was always a neighborhood gem to me. 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!!
I will miss you. Thank you so much for all your kindness and delicious food.
We will miss you SO MUCH!!!
Thank you for years of wonderful food and hospitality.
Simply fabulous! Evertime we go we are never disappointed.
Loved our meal & will miss 421!
Always the best possible experience. My friends and I will miss this venue. So sorry they are closing. Great food at moderate prices; owners who care about people!
Wonderful, imaginative and delicious food. The trifecta!
The bouillabaisse was the best I’ve ever tasted.
We love this place and are so sorry that it will soon be closed. Many of us are trying to get there as many times as possible this month!
Sorry to see them closing
It is a favorite place and we wanted to enjoy our own Last Supper before they close at the end of the month. 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.
So sad they are closing. We will them so very much.
We have dearly loved Kafe 421 for many years and are sorry to see them close. Most of the food was delicious and reasonably priced. I shall miss them very much but hope they will be happy as caterers. Thanks for the memorable meals and warm welcomes.
Closing end of July
Always nice service and yummy food. Easy to talk to your table mates, not too noisy.
I ordered the salmon salad with very LIGHT dressing. It came drenched. I should have sent it back. But I hate to be "one of those", so I ate it - mostly.
Delicious food, perfectly prepared. Service was superb.
The waitress forgot our appetizer. How hard is it to remember and appetizer with only one table in the back room?
Went here with a big group (10+) and they were awesome! Every person loved their meal and the service was great. Would 100% recommend :)
The salmon was done perfect. Veggies were fresh and a great seasoning. The pita bread appetizer was to die for. We will be back!
Tried this spot out as we had tickets to a concert at Northrop Auditiorium. Good food at a good price!
Everything was phenomenal! The food was and the friendly service was great
I would definitely recommend them. For some reason, they didn't get my Open Table reservation but made room for us and it was a very good experience.
This restaurant was a delightful surprise. Good value and delicious food.
The hospitality and ambiance of Kafe 421 countered an unseasonably cold, windy, rainy May day. From savory appetizers to subtlely sweet desserts, it was the perfect place for my son's U of M post-commencement celebration.
Had a great time and meal here and we will be back! Excellent service!
kafe 421 cafe is ALWAYS good, food, service, ambiance....it is all good and reasonable. I go at least every other month.
As always the good snd service was excellent.
Best place to eat In Dinkytown. Food is always great!
I loved the quieter aura of the restaurant. I came to catch up with a friend and we were served promptly but were not bothered by staff. It is a really fantastic place.
This is a family restaurant run with LOVE.
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!
First time at this restaurant; found it on opentable. 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.
Surprised us with how great the food was and it was a perfect little date spot for my husband and I. Cute little restaurant!
Met my sister for dinner before a concert at the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown. 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.
Excellent food, atmosphere and over all experience. One of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities.
