5 of the Best Bakeries in Minneapolis

There’s something about cold weather that makes baked goods taste even better. Warm up with a cup of coffee and your favorite treats at any of these 5 best bakeries in the Twin Cities. Here are some of our favorites.

Angel Food Bakery + Donut Bar:

It’s the coolest urban bakery in the country according to Thrillist. Angel Food Bakery has also been featured on Food Network, Martha Stewart Living, and more. Everything is made from scratch in small batches at this tiny bakery with a big following. Sit at the counter so you can watch them decorate the donuts and wedding cakes.

Rose Street Patisserie:

Pastry Chef John Kraus has won just about every pastry award, and he’s the first American to be inducted into the exclusive Relais Desserts society. See for yourself at the original Minneapolis Rose Street Patisserie or the newer St. Paul location. There is a full breakfast menu and sandwiches in addition to the chocolates, eclairs, and baguettes.

Butter Bakery Cafe:

For delicious biscuits and scones you can feel good about, visit Butter Bakery Cafe in Southwest Minneapolis. Their focus on community and sustainability includes a partnership with Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative to employ and mentor homeless youth. They’ve also adopted a no-tip model to support fair wages in the industry. Plus, their biscuits were chosen to represent Minnesota by the International Biscuit Festival.

Sift Gluten Free:

You don’t have to miss out on the fun just because you eat gluten free or want to try it out. How about zucchini and walnut muffins or a bite-size ham and cheese quiche? There’s no wheat anywhere at Sift Gluten Free.

Trung Nam French Bakery:

What’s not to love about a place that combines French breads, patisseries, and Vietnamese staples? The flaky buttery croissants with a wide variety of fillings are a local sensation at Trung Nam French Bakery.While you’re brightening your day with a bakery run, let Twin Cities Appliance tend to all your home appliances.
