Opened in 1956, Sam and Louise Perrella, along with Gene Cortese, brought Chicago-style pizza to Fargo. Sam needed a gimmick to get the locals to try this new “foreign” food and so he placed his pizza making station in the front window. The Fargo location still makes the pizza’s right there in the front window, on the corner of 3rd Ave. N and Broadway.

We want a place where everyone feels free to be themselves—a café where every worker earns a living wage, and every guest feels welcome. And the coffee? We want the coffee to be among America’s best. Youngblood was born from these goals, and we remember them every day. We admit that these are some pretty romantic ideals—it’s not easy to make amazing craft coffee and provide on-point hospitality, all while nurturing the professional growth of our co-workers and friends. Nonetheless, those are our goals, our desires, and our wants. It’s the reason we’re here. We came here with decades of craft coffee experience. We helped build some of the community’s most successful roasteries and cafes… from Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, to throughout the Midwest. We soaked in all the wisdom and expertise that we could, and brought it home to Youngblood.

A little bit about this whole donut thing. People often ask us what makes our donuts taste so much better than others they have had. It’s because we love making donuts as much as you love eating them. We are passionate about bringing you the same quality donuts we have always made and you have come to love, but we are also excited and maybe even a little bit giddy about bringing you new, exciting and flavorful crafted donuts that you have never even imagined. Because of this passion we are willing to buy better ingredients and take the time to make the donuts fresh every night – never frozen. We do not sell day olds or save any donuts from the day before. After that they are boxed up and sent to shelters the next morning. So there it is – the big Sandy’s Secret. We call it Donut Love.

Recognized as ND's best "dive bar", Empire Tavern opened in 1964. That year's also just about the last time anything but the prices changed, likely including the mop water, which gives the bar a certain glorious, lived-in charm. The ventilation ducts still lord over the long bar, with old-school beer mirrors and neon signs packed onto the wood-paneled walls. This is a place that's known for its ultra-stiff cocktails, meaning it's also a place known for people overdoing it and being asked to leave before they're done drinking. Luckily, there's a liquor store next door, too.
Empire Tavern
424 Broadway N
Recognized as ND's best "dive bar", Empire Tavern opened in 1964. That year's also just about the last time anything but the prices changed, likely including the mop water, which gives the bar a certain glorious, lived-in charm. The ventilation ducts still lord over the long bar, with old-school beer mirrors and neon signs packed onto the wood-paneled walls. This is a place that's known for its ultra-stiff cocktails, meaning it's also a place known for people overdoing it and being asked to leave before they're done drinking. Luckily, there's a liquor store next door, too.
Not a brewery technically...but instead a cidery. North Dakota's 1st Urban Cidery and Cider Bar. Located in the established neighborhood of Downtown Fargo. Directly on the east side of the Prairie Co-Op. We reside in a fully renovated and preserved Historical Stable of Downtown Fargo. The building was built between 1905 and 1910. The material used to renovate the taproom space is original walls, tables, joists, etc. Look for the plaque in the taproom that contains the pieces of history we found in the walls and flooring during demo.

It feels like a party in a basement, in 1975, because it is a basement with a 1975 vibe. Think "Marge" from the Fargo movie, add an eclectic appetizer menu that includes buttered lefse and pickled eggs, and cocktails inspired by the 1970's.
