I had a chicken salad sandwich. The chicken salad was fine though no exceptional. The bread was stale, a disappointment. Service was friendly.

The espresso was excellent, the salad was a wonderful blend of fresh mixed greens and vegetables with the fresh vinaigrette and my choice of sandwich was turkey with bacon jam on good fresh toast. It was a wonderful place to sit and visit with a friend and enjoy a good meal. The staff was wonderful and attentive and the baked... More

Very interesting place to eat, relax, buy artwork, and even bagged coffee and treats to go. We haven't had lunch there yet but breakfast sandwiches were good.

Probably the best coffee for at least 50 miles around, friendly staff, delicious baked goods and sandwiches. You can also see local artwork and buy gifts and art as well as coffee mugs and well-designed t-shirts. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

Best lunch I've had outside the Twin Cities in years. My husband had the lingonberry melt with brie and ham while I devoured a Banh Mi with a side salad. His malt was outstanding while I slurped down a sweet and savory latte. Food choices vary from Vietnamese to a good ole American standards like ham and cheese. Salads and... More

Café Wren was recommended to us by a gal at Chateau St. Croix winery. What a great recommendation. Many different choices on the menu, the raspberry tea is yummy. Food & service are both excellent. You should try it!!

Great food and coffee, with homemade pastries and soups. Friendly staff and cute atmosphere. Unique gifts and art for sale. A Memorial Day garden/art sale and a December Holiday sale featuring local artists and handmade items.

The food was good and it should be for what they charge. I understand that this is a small, independent operation, but it's really too expensive. In addition, there were about 20 patrons in the building and 4 staff members, and chaos would be quite close to the description of the atmosphere. Finally, before we finished the last bites of...
