Spyhouse Whittier Nicollet cafe

In 2000, Spyhouse opens its first location in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis.


In 2000, Spyhouse first opened in a 1926 brownstone in the Whittier neighborhood, one of Minneapolis’ oldest and most diverse neighborhoods—just blocks from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Minneapolis Institute of Art, and The Children’s Theatre.

From this start as a small, independent coffeehouse, Spyhouse has grown not only physically by adding five locations and a roasting facility, but by expanding its mission. It is our passion to source, roast, brew, and serve the customer an exceptional coffee while educating that customer on the entire process, from origin to consumption.
