Visiting Minneapolis for the weekend & went for breakfast. Sat on the patio that was very pleasant. Best dishes were the Gouda hash browns & creme brûlée French toast. Would definitely recommend for good food & great ambiance.

Wonderful place. Service was great, never felt rushed. Good food options from nice entrees to burgers and pizzas. Went there to celebrate a birthday and they did a flaming firework candle on the dessert. Nice touch. Will definitely go back!

What a location and building. Sitting outside by the river in an historic district. Food was excellent. Service, very shaky with the order taken wrong or filled wrong in the kitchen. Quickly rectified, but several odd order issues. Could be a new waitress, don’t know....More

Stopped by to meet a friend for a light meal on a snowy day. Good food, great atmosphere. Attached parking ramp. When the weather is nice, there is an outdoor patio overlooking the Mississippi and downtown.

We stopped in and found a beautiful cafe/bar unlike anything we've seen in the US. Food, coffee, drinks, all are available. We had a Creme Brulee and and a wonderful beer. Service was friendly and warm. The ambience was slightly French, very sophisticated.
