At Dogwood East Lake, parking is located on the street at the front (Lake St.) and east side (41st Ave.) of the building. There are also a few spots located at the back of our building in the lot directly behind the building on the south side of the property. There is one accessibility space in this lot. You can find it at the front on the left side when you turn into the lot. During the summer months, a bike rack is located at the front of the building across from Anderson Realty. If you forgot your bike lock, talk to one of our baristas. We have one bike lock that can be used if needed while you are spending time in our cafe.
ENTRANCE, ORDERING, OFFERINGS
The front entrance is on the north side of the building. When you come in the door, our merchandise and coffee shelf are directly to your right, the register is straight ahead, and the cafe seating is off to the left. Our beverage menu is located on the wall to the right, just behind the register. We have an additional rotating beverage menu to the left of the register. Our grab-and-go fridge and pastry case is to the right of the register—feel free to peruse it and let a barista know what you would like; they’ll be happy to add it to your order. The pastry case has assorted pastries and cookies daily. The grab-and-go fridge offers cold sandwiches and salads on weekdays, yogurt parfaits, hard boiled eggs, and bottled and canned beverages.
Once your beverage is ready, your name will be called, and your drink will be placed on the teal metal countertop to the left of the cafe bar (right next to our espresso machine). You will find lids and sleeves on the countertop where your prepared beverage is placed. There are cups and a water fountain towards the back of the building just past the cafe’s bar seating. It reads like customers aren’t supposed to use it, but we promise it’s there for you!
SEATING, CONDIMENT STATION, BATHROOMS
This cafe is an open space that can be thought of in two halves. The right half of the cafe provides three bars with bar seating, two larger booths, a few two-person booths, and a few tables. The larger four-person table is labeled for accessibility. On the left side of the cafe there is additional bar seating, a couple of two-person tables, and one larger community table.
You can find a bus-bin, straws, additional lids, napkins, sugar, silverware, compost, trash, and recycling on the left side of the cafe. All of our cups, lids, straws, napkins, and sleeves are compostable.This cafe has one single-use restroom located past the bus bin on the right. This restroom has a baby changing table.
We hope you enjoy your time in our cafe. We think this space is cozy, vibrant, and—at its best—sociable! We’re proud to be a part of Minneapolis’ Longfellow community.
