We ordered a combination of the standard breakfast fare along with two donuts. The donuts were the standout for sure. The coffee is pretty good for a mom/pop breakfast joint. The omelette was good and the english muffin bread is the best we had of the 4 different kinds we tried. Stop in for some cheap eats or just get... More

Whether you visit the bakery side or the restaurant side of Raphael's, you're in for a treat. The baked goods are delicious, including the breads used in the sandwiches. Their offerings are varied and reasonably priced. This is truly a local place, and an asset to Bemidji.

Deliciously fresh food for a good price. The staff is always very friendly and happy to help with your food choices. They have the best donuts around! Only complaint is that they are not open Sunday's.

Raphael's has the best soup and sandwiches in town! The homemade bread and soup make this an ideal spot to gather with friends for a delicious lunch.

I've eaten here in the past, this time I got take out. Soup and salad came with a roll and jello and a little muffin. There may have been more, I can't remember. Good value for your money.

Wonderful bakery and cafe. Lots of yummy sandwiches on the menu made with their daily baked on site breads. Ton of food for low prices. They always include a cookie from their own bakery. Staff is very friendly. The place is always full with lots of locals.

My grandchildren can be bribed so easily with a custard filled donut from Raphaels. When I bring home the date filled cookies they almost never make it past treat... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place. It is a MUST stop each time we're in Bemidji -even if it's just for a donut. I've had the sandwich and soups for lunch and I've never been disappointed. I had to have their cakes for my bridal shower (they did an amazing job at red velvet), and like I... More
