Find us... the corner of 37th and Nicollet in Southwest Minneapolis, conveniently accessible by foot, bike, bus or car. We support users of sustainable transit systems with half price drinks for bikers and bus pass holders every Monday!

By Bike

Butter sits between a northbound bike route on 1st Avenue South, and a southbound bike route on Blaisdell Avenue. We're also about one mile south of the Midtown Greenway's Nicollet exit, and just a few blocks north of the RiverLake Greenway along 40th Street. Learn more about biking in Minneapolis from Bike Walk Twin Cities. Show your helmet for a half price drink on Mondays!  Connect with Bicycle for deals each time you bike to Butter. And now thanks to Bike Fixtation we have a bicycle repair stand available for your use.  We now have a NICE RIDE station on the block for bike rental from April through Early November.

By Bus

Nicollet Avenue is served by route 18, a high frequency route from downtown Minneapolis to Bloomington, with stops right outside our door. One block away, the 23 runs along 38th Street from Uptown to Highland Village. Find a schedule and plan your trip at Metro Transit's website.   Have a bus pass? Your drinks are half-price on Mondays.

By Car

Highway road construction on 35W means your exit is at 46th St from the North, while the 35th St exit is still open from the south. Watch for closures, detours and a bit of extra traffic however. While it is currently a bit more of trek, we’re all excited for better access and express bus options that come with this three year project.

We have a limited number of off street parking spots behind the shop (off of 37th Street), including a 5 minute spot for those picking up to go orders, bakery, or coffee. There is always plenty of on street parking. We encourage carpooling or car sharing – an Hour Car hub is only a couple blocks away on 38th Street at the Co-Op.
