Black Forest Inn, Minneapolis MN

We hope you're all staying healthy and safe!

Each day since May 15, 1965, we have dedicated ourselves to serving you a special selection of foods inspired by the German kitchen. By preparing these foods right here with fresh ingredients—including our own bratwurst, spaetzel, breads and pastries—we are able to offer you well-made dishes at the best possible price.

We were born on the 15th of May but we're closed on the 4th of July!

Have a happy Independence Day!

Call 612-872-0812 or message us for reservations or takeout! We're here for you from 3 - 9pm every day!
