Welcome to Masa & Agave

the ultimate cantina experience in the heart of downtown Minneapolis.

Worshipped as the Aztec gods of fertility and long life, venerated for their powers of sustenance, corn masa and agave have been central to Mexican culture and cuisine since ancient times.  Using authentic flavors and techniques, we prepare corn masa starters, Mexico City-style tacos and other cantina classics to pair with your choice of over 300 agave spirits.  Our collection of Tequilas and Mezcals pays homage to the jimadores and mezcaleros who have labored over their craft for generations.  Swing by for a copita or two, try a signature Margaritas - Tradicionale, Tamarindo or Passionfruit - or mix your own Margarital al Gusto to taste!  Salud!
