National Register of Historic Places Information



Freeman’s Department Store, inside the Coliseum Building, once stood at the corner of East Lake and Minnehaha Ave. Opening in 1917, it survived until 1975, when the commercial decline of Lake Street combined with the growth of national chains and suburban shopping malls made the inner-city Lake Street location undesirable to shoppers. At one time East Lake had five full-sized department stores. The intersection of the streetcar lines at 27th and Lake created bustling foot traffic. Today the building houses a Denny’s, the Mexican sandwich shop Manny’s Tortas, and several community organizations.

Manny's Tortas

Manny Gonzales arrived in Minneapolis from Mexico City in 1983. For several years he worked with a catering company as a chef before following his dream to open his own restaurant. He read in the newspaper one day about classes offered by a community organization to help entrepreneurs start their own business. He signed up, and upon completion of the program found an opportunity to promote his favorite food, tortas, a type of Mexican sandwich. Out 25 restaurants, Manny was one of the 5 selected to become a part of the new Mercado Central.

Now, there are three Manny’s Tortas in the area, and Gonzales attributes his success to the success of the Mercado that allowed him to bridge gaps between Latino immigrants and other city residents by serving the different communities.
