Coalition is Excelsior's culinary gem. Local ingredients creatively blended for delicious and satisfying fare. Also great local draft beer selection and cocktails. A fun place for a date night or casual get together with friends. Top notch place all the way around.

Coalition is a quaint little spot! There a couple high tables in the front window that are fun to sit at! The bar is also a nice place to have a drink and visit with the bar tenders! Their Happy Hour apps are delicious and...More

I had a great second experience at Coalition on 50th and France in Edina. The breakfast bowl had everything I love for breakfast but good enough for lunch. Give it a try- eggs, avocado, bacon, spinach, farrow. Will be back.

Nice treat after exploring Main Street. Gorgeous decor and lighting throughout. Neon blue wine wall. Good lunch variety and menu. Walleye sandwich was yummy as well as the fries. House coalition white wine was very good.

Appetizers we ordered were excellent- cheese curds, breaded cauliflower, & pork sandwiches. We had small kids along and our waitress was super helpful. Dinner for everyone was very good- everybody happy

We dined at Coalition Saturday night with friends. The place is small but cute inside. Had a high top table- not my personal favorite for dinner out. Server was nice but drinks were slow to get. Appetizer list is weak. The menu is a bit...More

I am also having dinner there for Valentine's Day. I did not see anything special but they have such a variable menu I don't think they run specials even for valentines day. I've never been disappointed though.
