Dining room and bakery both good food and great service!

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

Great bakery with friendly staff. Definitely a treat every time we go. The baked goods are tasty and the homemade soups and sandwiches are excellent. A little busy during lunch however quick to serve.

Raphael's is very popular with local residents. Get there early for lunch if you want a seat! They offer tasty lunch specials that always include a dish of raw veggies and some of their fantastic bread. The soups are wonderful! Owned locally, the friendly owners are always there to chat a little bit. Along with the cafe, they have a... More

Not soft at all, always taste like 2 day old doughnuts. Had to stop getting our business doughnuts there. Have not tried other items.

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.
