Great pet fish collection. The owner takes good care of them and they all seemed very healthy and happy. He also made sure I had my tank all set up before selling me the fishies. Would def go again.

Brad Strand

The owner is very intelligent and courteous. and to my surprise the fish are actually better priced than big chains like petco or petsmart. they sell a wide variety of fish and birds on top of all that they have a lot of products for cats dogs and rodents. highly recommend for most pet needs

David is so nice to work with and very knowledgeable. I just got a beautiful pair of shaft tail finches to be neighbors with my lizzard Canary I've had for 5 years... Love them.

I will never understand how a place like this can stay open. I can't comprehend how closing at 5 pm helps your business. 10-5? Really? I have always put a lot of effort into mom and pop shops whenever I can but I work until 5. Petco it is. So sad

This is a little shop of horrors. The birds are kept in totally inhumane conditions in the back of the store. The cages they were kept in were smaller than 12 inches. There was a canary so plucked from overcrowding in a tiny cage that the owner offered him to me for free when I expressed concern. I couldn’t say no and I rescued him, but this place still haunts me. Don’t support this kind of animal care. I called the city and animal control but they can’t do anything as long as there is food and water offered to the birds. So sad. Boycott and tell your friends to too.

After seeing the reviews, I had high hopes for this place. Its right by my office so I went in on my lunch yesterday. There was an older man working who barely acknowledged me. I tried to ask some questions, but he seemed annoyed or anti-social, so I gave up. Fish tanks were covered in algae, especially the plants (which is what I was shopping for). If you want to bring black beard algae into your home tank, then this is the store for you. I did see some dead fish, and the plant selection was very minimal. Overall, I am upset I even paid for parking to go in here, which was a bummer. I will not be going back.

For 4 years I have owned a beautiful canary named Piccolo whose song has layers of depth and tone with highs and lows. The owner was very helpful, kind and professional. I highly recommend this quaint lovely shop.

Vern Wahlberg

The owner of Simon's is very nice old time shop has been there for many many years prices in the shop or outstanding always has great live plants and lots of community fish.


Drove and walked all over St Paul to find this place. We got there at 3pm, two hours before closing, and paid about five bucks for parking. The place was closed. Don't waste your time driving and paying for parking.

I bought budgie food here a couple years ago. I like the friendly cashier and the old time-y feel.

Shannon Hageman

I love this shop... I got my 3 fish 1 loach and a pleco and they are healthy beautiful fish.... The older gentleman is very helpful and kind... I will always get my fish from here....


Great prices on quality fish. The owner is very knowledgeable about aquatics and birds. I have been going to Sonnen's since the 70's. Would refer Sonnen's to anyone.

Phil Ryan

Horrible conditions for the birds.


Quality fish/birds, and supplies. Extremely knowledgeable owner. This place has been around for a long time for a reason.

Bj Woodswalker

I have had excellent service every time I'm there. His birds are healthy, beautiful, and I've had very good luck with them. The owner has also gone out of his way to be helpful with services like calling when he gets a shipment of birds if you are interested in a specific species. Going to the Sonnens shop is like taking a step back in time, with all the original service of the old fashioned malt shop. I get all my finches there.

Ashley Chavez

Always clean..Friendly service..And my fish always live forever from ever..

I was told that the little green canary was a wonderful singer. Wonderful is in no way to explain his voice! Heavenly!

Excelent service, the prices are great and the fish healthy

Lindsey Moua

Great prices! Great fish! A tiny store but had a range of fish that your local petco/petsmart don't have at reasonable prices! Plus their fish are HEALTHY, Unlike many stores. The guy obviously knew what he was talking about. Had a great experience! Will be coming back soon!
