good music – I've been to this coffee house twice. The first time, the live music was amazing. Our drinks were also good, with exception of one called the "tarpit" which I got the second time around. It was too strong for me, and the spices were just floating on the top. We also ordered food which was tasty, but not spectacular (my panini was very cold in the center). They also have tacky trinkets on display for sale. It makes the space feel a bit divish, however it's still a relatively comfortable place to hang around for a while. (We spent 5 hours there the first time). Another drawback is a major lack of plug ins for laptops- at least near the booths that's the case. Overall, I'd go back when there's live music happening, but if I lived in the neighborhood, I might go back a bit more often as it is a comfortable space except for the tacky trinkets.
The soothing folk music offered at this St. Paul joint soothes even the most caffeinated soul. – In Short
By day, Ginkgo is a friendly, neighborhood java joint with mismatched furniture, potted plants and a few outdoor tables in summer. A couple of nights a week, however, the atmosphere changes, and this coffeehouse on the edge of St. Paul's Hamline University campus becomes a dimly lit, cozy acoustic-music venue. For food and drink, you'll find healthy cafe fare and steaming cups o' joe served any which way.
