Great food and beer, fun location, service has room for improvement

Four of us ate here for dinner on a Saturday evening. The tables were full when we arrived, we sat along a bar rail and ordered drinks, our host/waiter said he would look out for a table for us. We waited less than 10 minutes before the 4 of us had a table. The restaurant was busy. We all... read more

We have eaten at Mosaic several times and can't bring ourselves to order anything other than the Rueben. It is the best one I've ever tasted. Their outdoor space is nice and looks right across to the Harriet Brewery.

Excellent and friendly service. This sweet and cozy little café is well worth a visit. It surprised me. Everything is fresh made. It is located in the building with one of Minneapolis most stunning murals. I can't wait to return in the summer and sit on the patio. It's right across from Harriet Brewing and the feature what ever 3... More

Just came home from a very good early dinner at Mosaic. Thanks to a Living Social Deal, we tried this place out and shall definitely return. The tap beers are from Harriet Brewing, right across the street. We had a burger and the tuna muffaletta - both delicious, and the fries were so good!! Friendly service, and now we want... More

Like this little burger place but not as much as my husband did. The wait to get seated on a first come basis was about 35 min. The servers flow easily among the tables working as a team. It's a relaxed environment to be sure. The food is nicely presented and the menu offering really good. My husband and I... More

We enjoyed a delicious outdoor Sunday lunch served by a very knowledgeable and friendly waitress. Because we were not on a schedule and enjoyed the wait time by visiting, the rather long time between ordering and eating did not present a problem; however, I would advise that because everything is made from scratch, do not plan on a quick meal....

We enjoyed heaping servings of delicious and healthy food outside on the attractive terrace of the Mosaic Cafe this evening. The "Moon Burger" was one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had (roasted veggies, black beans and brown rice), served with guacamole, lettuce, Muenster cheese, paper thin slices of jalapeño, and chili lime crema sauce on the side. The... More

Everything on the menu is great. Its a great place to take friends/colleagues who have sensitive or picky palates. They have vegan and gluten-free options, and it tastes great. my favorite is the turkey burger and the garden salad. Its the only salad I've every eaten that's almost as good as salads I make at home. But the best reason... More

The rosemary french fries are fantastic and addictive. One order is enough for 3 - 4 people although the fries are so tasty that 2 people might devour an entire basket. The menu is imaginative and tasty. Everything's good. Service is friendly.

The frozen custard is the real thing and very rich--try the Raspberry Truffle Sundae.. Best burgers in town, too, in my opinion--high quality beef, and they'll even cook them fairly rare if you ask, which is, ahem, rare these days.
