Summit Hill and Crocus Hill
Nina's coffee cafe
The large, comfortable houses that repose on green lawns here are within walking distance of one of the liveliest retail areas in Saint Paul: Victoria and Grand. Café Latte, right at the intersection, is a civic institution, famed for its beyond-rich desserts, and for many blocks in both directions some of Grand Avenue's best-loved businesses can be found: the independent Red Balloon kids' bookshop; Sunny Sky, a Chinese antique store that also sells rare teas from the Middle Kingdom; the brand-new, design-savvy Dixie-Caribbean eatery called Brasa, and a host of other establishments, many of them in converted family houses.
