This is a non- profit literary arts center that was established in May 21, 2001. This was a gift to the city from Linda Myers of The Loft Literary Center, Peggy Korsmo-Kennon of the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and Emilie Buchwald of Milkweed Editions. It was also an initiative to find a good place to collectively house their organizations. It is rightly considered as a main part of the cultural growth of the city.

Open Book Reviews & Ratings
Good drinks served by friendly staff, cozy industrial vibe good to meet friends or bring a laptop to get work done. While you're there check out awesome local art and books for sale at the other businesses in the building
I was visiting a friend downtown and we stopped here for a coffee. Prices and quality were fair, as was the service. A friendly atmosphere with plenty of space to get work done. A cool little hipster coffee joint good for a quick brew. Plus, it shares a space with the Minnesota Center for Book Arts which was a magical surprise. Highly recommend checking this place out!
Open Book is one of my favorite spots in the city, and Conexion (the cafe inside it) plays a crucial role in that. My writing group meets here once per month and I always get coffee and a breakfast sandwich or burrito. Before that, when I was taking a year-long class at The Loft, Conexion was there for me one evening per week for caffeine and snacks, dinner and good local beer. It's a hidden gem in our fair city and I hope this review is a small step toward changing that. Come, sit, eat and drink, surround yourself with books and book people. And tell Jake (my favorite barista) that Amber says hi.
Incredibly friendly staff they are always so nice and helpful and seem invested. The space is also awesome with things to do around the building. There is a book shop, a cute paper shop, and an art space. The drink I had was also great and there was a wide range of food from breakfasts to wine. A lot of natural light. Often there are seats available AND there is parking. Win-win-win
Best espresso and drip coffee I’ve had! First time visit to Conexion, great service by Brandon. Might just be my deciding factor to move to Minneapolis. Well done. 👍
