“Historic diner in Saint Paul, MN”

an art deco-styled, dining car restaurant located in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota, at 36 West 7th Street. It was prefabricated in 1937 by the Jerry O'Mahony Diner Company of Elizabeth, New Jersey; shipped to Saint Paul by rail; and installed just before World War II. Measuring just 50 feet long by 10 feet wide, the 24-hour diner has operated non-stop since it first opened according to employees. In 1983, the diner was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the only building of its kind in the state of Minnesota. The original Mickey's Diner appears in several Hollywood movies including The Mighty Ducks, Jingle All the Way, and A Prairie Home Companion. The diner is also featured on the front and back cover of the 1985 self-titled, debut album of R&B singer, Alexander O'Neal. Additionally, the diner appears in O'Neal's 1985 music video for the song, "Innocent", and in the 1991 Pet Shop Boys music video for the song, "Where The Streets Have No Name (I Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You)". The diner also appears in the animated short, "Dripped" by Leo Verrier (2012), about 2 minutes into the short film, although the city pictured in the film is New York. A second Mickey's Diner under different management is located at 1950 West 7th Street in Saint Paul's Sibley neighborhood. It is decorated in the manner of a 1950s-style diner rather than the original location which is representative of the Great Depression and Second World War eras of the 1930s and '40s.

It's in kind of a weird spot, and the food was typical diner style food. The place has charm and worth seeing if you're going to be in St. Paul. Space is small, so don't go with a crowd.

Their malts were amazing and the service was great! Their food was good, but nothing too special. I loved the ambiance. It is definitely worth going if you are going to be in St. Paul.
