Travelers arriving at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport are enjoying new dining options at the recently opened food court on the Airport Mall in Terminal 1.

PinKU, Shake Shack, Auntie Anne’s, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Firehouse Subs are all located in the newly remodeled space, which features tons of natural light and added seating. Patrons can also take a seat and cozy up to one of the modern fireplaces or alongside the two-story-tall wall of windows for views of the airfield.

PinKU (pictured above) is a fine-casual restaurant from award-winning local chef John Sugimura. Japanese street food, sushi, sake and cocktails are served from a striking bright pink tea house at the center of the food court.

Shake Shack is a national brand that traces its roots to a hot dog cart in Manhattan. Menu items include deluxe burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more.

Auntie Anne’s, a food court staple, offers a variety of pretzels, pretzel nuggets and pretzel dogs to satisfy the hunger of any traveler.

Moe’s Southwest Grill is a popular national brand that serves Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. The menu includes burritos, quesadillas, tacos, burrito bowls and nachos. This is Moe’s only Minnesota location.

Firehouse Subs, also a national brand, was founded by firefighters. Guests will enjoy a wide range of specialty subs – including a club on a sub and firehouse steak and cheese. Single-meat subs are also on the menu.

Armed Forces Service Center in new space on Concourse A


The Armed Forces Service Center (AFSC) at Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport (MSP) recently moved into a newly built location above the Concourse A food court in Terminal 1. The facility opened on Friday, November 8.

Demolition of the current location - on the mezzanine level overlooking Terminal 1’s ticketing lobby – will make way for renovation work to be completed in that area.

The AFSC at MSP Airport serves active military and their dependents who are traveling, as well as retired military members and their dependents on a space-available basis.

“We’ve been open since 1970, and we never close our doors,” said Debra Cain, executive director of the AFSC.

The new AFSC, at 4,900 square feet, is two-and-a-half times larger than the current location.


Auntie Anne's and Cinnabon now open on Concourse F

You can now find sweet and salty in the same spot in Terminal 1, as Auntie Anne’s and Cinnabon recently opened a combined location on Concourse F.

The two shops are located near Gate F4, offering an array of options for sweet and savory soft pretzels and oven-hot, fresh cinnamon rolls.

Regardless your preference, both are worth the short four-gate trip down Concourse F - even if your flight is on another concourse.
