Cafe Maude was great. Forst and foremost, outstanding service! The biscuits and gravy was delicious as was the omelette we had. You really cannot go wrong here! Stop in and have a great bloody mary or mimosa along with some great food!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Cafe Maude. It has a nice, relaxed atmosphere with wonderful food and drink. The prices are very reasonable. A perfect experience.

My daughter insisted we make the trip from our Wisconsin home an hour away for the excellent fish fry. I was disappointed. The dinner came with two small tempura breaded filets along with a child's portion of coleslaw and wedge french fries. Their was far more tempura than fish which, once you found it, tasted ok. The coleslaw was below... More

I wish they had different wines offered as their house wines (chardonnay and merlot, yuck). But they had a nice sparkling rose for $7 and their french fries with cheese fondue was very good.

We had a two to three-hour wait for service to my daughter's car while I was visiting her in Minneapolis. Not far from our service location we found this delight! Maude Armatage is the inspiration to this fun little bistro. (I refer to her as the Kate Sessions of Minneapolis for her work as a public park commissioner in the... More

I think this spot is best for a small group. They are not a very large restaurant. Food is very tasty, but restaurant can get loud.

We tried this cafe about 2 yrs ago and weren't impressed. I wanted to feel good about this spot because it is locally owned, in a great SW Mpls location. Decided to give it a 2nd try, but we are disappointed again. The noise is excessive. period. There are acoustical remedies for this, don't know why mgmt hasn't addressed the... More

I've been to this place many many times, as it's close to family members' home. I'd travel just about any distance to eat here, however. The truffle fries are my favorite, closely followed by the lamb sliders. The size on the truffle size is enough for three to share quite nicely, as my sister-in-law and I have shared one and...

I went here tonight with a girlfriend for dinner to catch up and it was the perfect place! It's quaint with the sense of laid back sophistication. The food was great- it was taco Tuesday and I had the chicken gyro special on fry-bread which was reminiscent of a hard shell taco- delicious! I would definitely recommend this place for... More

The food was great, especially the huge onions rings. Unfortunately there was a really long wait. The other downside was that the restaurant was really noisy. We felt we had to shout at each other in order to communicate.
