My daughter suggested my friend and I have lunch at French Meadow when we arrived in town. She said it was fresh, unique, reasonably priced and had outside seating if it was nice. It was everything she said! The flowers outside alone are worth the...More

Had a wonderful chicken breast sandwich served on ciabatta bread with a tasty sauce. Served with roasted potatoes and a pickle. Very tasty.

We ate the best dinner here that we had during our stay in Minneapolis. We had the curry and the glazed chicken. Both were delicious. We returned twice for baked goods - yum! All meals are served and the menus are extensive. They also contain...More

Approach the cafe with the hope to grab something fresh and finish eating a sandwich (big piece of old tasting bread) with a mediocre piece of turkey inside. Beverages and other stuff are more than overprice even for an airport place. Don't recommend at all.

By far the best restaurant in Uptown, if not Minneapolis. Artfully crafted dishes for all tastes. Craft cocktail from the Bluestem Bar are worth their price and their wine and beer selection is robust and affordable. Service is very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We went...More

I had the corn blueberry pancake, bacon and orange juice. The Pancake was not great. It was very heavy and I had to ask for extra syrup because it was so dense. The bacon was good and the orange juice was good. It was pricy...More

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.
