From bars and restaurants that represent Minneapolis’s thriving East African communities — including a large Somali population that earned the area the nickname “Little Mogadishu” — to hipster staples and live music galore, Cedar Riverside is a vibrant community visitors overlook. It’s just off the University of Minnesota’s West Bank that houses many of the school’s humanities and arts offices; there’s always something creative and academic going on. Yet the neighborhood itself is brimming with homes with blossoming gardens and hums with an environmentally conscious vibe throughout.
