Description: Welcome to the first Certified Organic Bakery in the USA! French Meadow began baking organic yeast-free bread in 1985. On the forefront of healthy, organic baking, we opened the popular Uptown cafe in the early 1990's by customer demand, and have been serving healthful gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, local, organic and natural foods ever since. With the growing demand for fresh and innovative food, we were able to expand the cafe in 2013 to include Bluestem Bar, offering full table service, a selection of sustainable wines and local taps, and a private dining room.

The food is luscious. Desserts are out of this world. If you are in this part of town don't mss it. One of the best Mn. has to offer.

French Meadow Bakery and Restaurant anchors a small pleasant up-scale mall. The Minneapolis airport is one of the most pleasant airports in the U.S. We are always pleased with the Minneapolis airport. The new international airport in Atlanta clearly has taken a lesson from Mineapolis.

The French Meadow Bakery and Restaurant may be the nicest restaurant in the airport and in most U.S. airports. The French Meadow Bakery and Restaurant is a bit upscale with wine service and a very interesting breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu. Families with children tended to collect at the ubiquitous food courts.

The French Meadow Bakery and Restaurant is really an adult experience. The separate bakery offers great desserts and sandwiches and provides separate seating.

Menu has great variety; the meal and service is first rate.

The tariff is appropriate for the fare.

Great food, good service, outstanding bakery, however, VERY crowded and difficult seating, waiting time for seating long and no place to wait. Large groups would almost be impossible.

This is a review of the MSP airport location of the French Meadow Bakery.
This is not the first time my wife and I have been to this restaurant.
Nothing is ordinary here, even the iced tea is to die for. Poached eggs served with a special spoon so that you can manage the eggs easily.
This location in, an airport, is totally unexpected the first time you go there.
We changed our flight to an earlier time so that we could have breakfast here!

Great breakfast and lunch spot, tons of delicious food. Excellent coffee! I love that the dishes come with a greens salad, simple and delicious. Try the cinnamon roll, you won't be sorry!
