This local coffee shop has recently expanded its menu so, in addition to the usual coffee drinks, you can get wrap sandwiches and other light menu items. Wine service is also available.

This is a fun coffee spot in downtown Excelsior. The outdoor patio overlooking the lake is great. It had a bit of a bohemian vibe. They also had a nice private room for meetings. They remodeled and the meeting room is gone, the walls are gray, and the room has been reconfigured to jam a lot of tables into the... More

This was after breakfast, but the aroma was too good to pass up. There were lots of choices. We needed to add chocolate chip banana bread. The shop is very convenient to the lake.

My husband and I really love Dunn Brothers and the location in Excelsior, MN is kind enough to open their doors to local musicians one Saturday a month. We stopped by this month and enjoyed a good hour of great music along with the very best coffee. The space is accommodating for relaxing and visiting with friends. We plan to... More

I come for the coffee and pick up a gluten free treat when I'm there. I wish more coffee shops offered more gluten free options. Thank you

Dunn Bros is my first stop for coffee while in Excelsior. friendly staff, great coffee, and bakery/food that is a cut above any of the chain coffee shops. The Dunn Bros features wine and beer and music on selected evenings. Great place to meet casually, or with a group (they have a conf room you can use). Dog friendly too!

I am a regular at this Dunn Brothers. I walk in and they are already making my Caramel Ice Crema! Private meeting room, live music, outdoor seating in nice weather. Water bowl outside for thirsty pups. The staff is super-friendly and always pleasant.

Wish they offered more light lunch options, I was in the mood for soup today but it's only offered a couple days a week for now. Our dogs loved the sunny patio and the people watching. I'm not a fan of Dunn Bros. coffee but the location is ideal.

On water street, which is the Main Street In excelsior. Great location across from lake Minnetonka. Usual Dunn brothers food choices. Coffee is excellent, better than Starbucks or caribou, in my opinion. Free first refill on coffee. Cozy seats next to gas fireplace which are great in the winter. Usually a Lively place. When exiting the parking lot, there is... More

I love the smell of coffee when I walk in. The choice is broad, and the snacks to go with it. Tables and chairs are arranged in cozy groups that encourage conversing, even group meetings. Always you'll see someone hunched over a laptop. The price is what you would expect for a coffee shop -- comfortable.
