Local landmark Mickey's Diner puts out call for help

After decades of pouring cups of coffee and serving hot plates of food, Mickey's asks the community for support.

ST PAUL, Minn. — After more than 80 years in business, a Twin Cities icon is asking the public for support. 

Mickey's Diner, located on West Seventh Street in St. Paul since 1939, and is temporarily closed due to the pandemic.

A GoFundMe has been created for Mickey's Diner, and has raised $10,000 of the $50,000 goal as of Jan. 1.

The organizer, Bert Mattson, wrote:

"The pandemic, long stretches without indoor dining, downtown attractions, and events, have left historic Mickey’s Diner struggling to keep the ember glowing. Mickey’s took the pandemic seriously and suspended 24/7 service for the first time in its 80 year history. Please consider supporting the continuing efforts of this local, national and historic landmark to keep its sign glowing over St Paul now and for the future."
