You will not have a baguette this tasty outside of France. Period. From their soft and buttery Challah to the crusty and savory olive loaf these bread makers can not be beat. The scones are perfect, as are the scrumptious cookies (your belly will have a love/hate relationship with the chocolate chocolate chip). They can run out early - so... More

Renovated farm house with lots of seating, coffee roaster and a patio for warmer days. Quiet nooks to enjoy food or have small business meeting. Menu is breakfast and lunch, with mostly yummy bakery items. Don't be deceived the Tuscan soup is excellent. Full bodied coffee.

Ok so after going ham on Lake Calhoun, biking and pedal boating got hungry and happened upon this place. Sure glad I did; awesome assortment of pastries and coffee. Probably not the best idea, right after all that physical activity, but soooo good.

One of my favorite coffee shops in Minneapolis. The bread is always fresh and delicious. The facilities clean and the price right. Service is tailor made for each person and if you decide to have lunch you can rest assured the same will be very tasty and original.

I believe it's the most amazing eclair that I have eaten! I used to go every week just to have some eclair.

On a recent trip to the Twin Cities a friend was bragging on Dogwood coffees. So we headed to Rustica. As we pulled into the strip mall housing Rustica (next to a Barnes & Noble) I started wondering what kind of experience we were in for. One step inside eased my mind. Wonderful smells of sweet pastries, breads and coffee.... More

This Bakery is so great! Love the Rustica rolls and baguettes! Pastries...one of each please! Several types of coffee, small selection of leaf brewed tea, hot chocolate. Wi-Fi available...seating outside, weather permitting...You can remain anonymous or share time with friends, the seating is a common room with simple appointments. You don't need much more with a good cup!

The best places are always tucked away and the same can be said for Rustica. Tucked in a strip mall off Lake & Excelsior, they have an amazing selection of backed goods and Coffee and Teas... I met a friend here and we both couldn't get over how good everything was. Highly recommended!

Simply the best coffee and the best bakery around. I'm not sure why it's not totally packed all the time. Great people work there and it's a great spot to meet someone before a walk around Lake Calhoun. Try it, you won't be dissapointed.
