We arrived in Minneapolis on Dec 30th for a weekend to celebrate my Birthday and New Years Weekend. I had done lots of research in regards to where we could eat as we are vegan and don't have a ton of options where we live...More

Would highly recommend coming here. Came here 2 times during my short visit it was so good. The first time had an Asian Tempeh dish, was the special of the night. The next time I had cornmeal waffles.

Small after work party, the food was good but not more than that. Drinks average/good as well. If you are looking for a good place with decent food and atmosphere this could be your choice certainly. Chicken piccata was tasty.

Went for a hot, delicious dinner meal and was extremely disappointed. The service was slow and lacked attention to detail. The hot food ordered arrived to the table lukewarm at best and wasn’t tasty anyway. Never again.

French Meadow Bakery & Café brings you organic, fresh, sustainable farm-to-table cuisine in a creative, welcoming environment. Our eclectic menu offers something for everyone -- vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, & omnivores alike -- plus a selection of local beers, cocktail specials, & organic / sustainable wines, as well as our signature bread, pastries, & desserts. Rotating chef specials focus on seasonal organic ingredients; all of our produce & meats are from our regional farmer partners, who operate organic, sustainable, humane farms. French Meadow began as the 1st certified organic bakery in the USA in 1985. Our popular Uptown Minneapolis cafe, a pioneer in serving local & organic foods, opened a few years later. With the growing demand for fresh and innovative food, we were able to expand the cafe in 2013 to include Bluestem Bar & Table, offering full table service, a selection of sustainable wines and local taps, and a private dining room.
