Moose & Sadie’s has closed after 29 years in Minneapolis. The cafe and coffee shop has been serving the North Loop since before it was a bustling, restaurant dense area. Back in the early days, the address 212 3rd Avenue was a corner of the Warehouse District, a part of town long on industrial buildings and short towering residential buildings. Countless hours of working, meeting, and taking a break for pie in between working and meeting have been logged inside its walls.

Last night owners Susan Muskat and Peter Kirihara made the announcement via Instagram, citing the brutal toll of the pandemic, “The economic impact of the crisis was just too much for our small business to overcome.”

Moose & Sadie’s is the latest in a wave of closures throughout the Twin Cities including The Bachelor Farmer, Izzy’s St. Paul, Muddy Waters, and more.
