I've been here for coffee with friends, brunch with friends/husband, and lunch with friends. Everything I ordered has been SOOOOOO tasty and fresh. Seems to always be a busy popular place but definitely worth the (usually short) wait.

This is our go-to for takeaway lunch when we're in Minneapolis. They use fresh ingredients, fairly straight-forward menu, prepared without fuss or clutter. The prices are reasonable, and the food is good.

We met family here for dinner, and I could not have been more delighted with the vegan and vegetarian options. My wife and I enjoyed the "Healing Plate" which is a mixture of vegan dishes served with grilled tempeh. The tempeh wasn't too spectacular, but...More

They accommodated my gluten-free diet well. From sandwich bread to cake, I was thoroughly pleased. The oatmeal cappuccino was like nothing I've ever tasted.

French Meadow Bakery & Café brings you organic, fresh, sustainable farm-to-table cuisine in a creative, welcoming environment. Our eclectic menu offers something for everyone -- vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, & omnivores alike -- plus a selection of local beers, cocktail specials, & organic / sustainable wines, as well as our signature bread, pastries, & desserts. Rotating chef specials focus on seasonal organic ingredients; all of our produce & meats are from our regional farmer partners, who operate organic, sustainable, humane farms. French Meadow began as the 1st certified organic bakery in the USA in 1985. Our popular Uptown Minneapolis cafe, a pioneer in serving local & organic foods, opened a few years later. With the growing demand for fresh and innovative food, we were able to expand the cafe in 2013 to include Bluestem Bar & Table, offering full table service, a selection of sustainable wines and local taps, and a private dining room.
