Raphael's has great bakery selections, and tasty lunches, too. The bakery is a little on the high-price spectrum, and I do wish they were open Sunday mornings for pastry purchases, but I'm proud of our old-fashioned, hometown bakery. The eats are delicious!

Don't miss the chance to stop at Raphael's Bakery Café. They have the best baked goods in all of Minnesota. At Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, they have the best Holiday selections to pick from. Their soups and Sandwiches are the best.

Always enjoy the great homemade soups! They have good food and specials of the day. Also, don't forget to get some homemade donuts, pies, and bread! DELICIOUS!

Going into Raphael's Bakery you feel like you are going back in time. I had home-made potato soup and bread that was very tasty as well as one of their home-made glazed donuts which was also good. Raphael's serves lunch specials as well as bakery items. If you enjoy small town atmosphere than Raphael's is a good place to go.

Trip Advisor found this gem for us. Great lunch, and we could not resist buying dessert from the adjacent bakery. The food was top-notch and reasonably priced. Cheerful and efficient staff made it that much better. Call it luck, but we also had a free parking spot at the front door. Can't do that in the harried metro area where... More

My wife and I went to raphael's Saturday and very much enjoyed our breakfast, but the highlight of our visit was one of the servers brought around warm cake doughnuts! WOW! It was delightful.

On a bike trip on the Paul Bunyan Trail. Stopped here for breakfast- just about the nicest people serving the best food we have ever experienced. We ate too much but after 70 miles on the bike, we could justify it!

We were travelling towards Lake Superior and happened to be in Bemidji around lunch time. Driving the side streets, we came upon Raphael's. It is a great small town diner/bakery. They dress up the basic sandwich and chips with a bonus side of fresh fruit and add a cookie to the plate. Nice touch. Tough to pass up the bakery... More

This is a really great bakery cafe! The food is great, plentiful and homey. Comfortable place that rewards you with a free cookie after lunch. DO NOT leave without some incredible baked goods!

Raphael's is a genuine small town diner with a decent bakery too. Be sure to get there early or they may be out of your favorite roll though.
