They have a great selection of wine and appetizers with good live music on Friday and Saturdays. The house wine is always good. Music starts early on Friday with 2 shows. Get there early as there is limited seating.

I've been to the Wine Cafe on a few visits to Mankato. It has some nice music, fun bartenders and ok food. The L shape lay out is constrictive. Needs some updating including the furniture which is filthy and filtration for the smell which actually...More
