"Wonderful Neighborhood and Community!"

The Armatage neighborhood is right next to the Kenny neighborhood so we frequently find ourselves there. We love the tree lined streets that continue from one beautiful neighborhood in Minneapolis to the next, the houses and yards are all well maintained. You'll find plenty of neighbors out and about, walking to and from the fabulous restaurants and parks. The Armatage neighborhood is home to some of our favorite restaurants in Minneapolis, Cave Vin, Cafe Maude and Pizza Lola. It's also where you will find Settegren's hardware, you can't help but feel like a part of the community when you walk in this store. They greet you at the door and ask how they can help. Armatage is conveniently close to downtown, uptown and major freeways making your work commute easy and your entertainment options endless.
