The brothers were drawn to the Pop! space because they loved the neighborhood’s proud sense of identity. “We want to be a part of a strong community, the once-a-week place you bring the whole family for dinner, the place you can relax with a stack of pancakes and some coffee in the morning and come back to in the evening for some craft beer and comfort food.”
As we get closer to the ride, we want to spotlight some of our amazing sponsors and bike friendly businesses–be sure to show them your support and thank them for their support of the Northeast Ride!
One of sponsors for the Northeast Ride this year is Hazel’s Northeast. Hazel’s is an American comfort food restaurant located at the corner of Johnson St and NE 29th Ave. There are nearby bike trails on St. Anthony Pkwy and nearby bike routes along Stinson Pkwy, NE Lowry Ave, and NE Fillmore St.
The restaurant was founded by Adam and Andrew Sieve, and named in honor of their grandmother, Helen “Hazel” Sieve. The restaurant’s story starts in Long Prairie, where homemaker and farmer Hazel began baking pies for a local diner. After a few years, she and her husband opened their own restaurant, the Grille Cafe. When their sons took it over, it became the Travelers’ Inn in Alexandria, still in business. The next generation kept going in the restaurant tradition: Adam and Andrew got the idea of starting a restaurant in their grandmother’s honor in Minneapolis in 2010. According to City Pages:
Hazel’s serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, open from 7 am to 9 pm weekdays and till 10 pm Friday and Saturday (brunch hours on Sunday). Their menu is especially focused on breakfast and brunch. Most entrées for all meals are about $8-$11.
