This was our third visit, and was easily the most crowded - place was almost completely full on a Friday night. Service was decent, but they probably could have used one more server. The reason we come back is for the brisket burger! While a...More

Tried the "new" B&N kitchen. Based on the hype and the Star & Tribune review, expected better. Nothing wrong with the experience, and will add that relative to the old Café, an improvement but hoped for more. The service was good, but hard to figure...More

Read some rave reviews in the newspaper so since we were there thought we'd give it a try. As most reviews here state it has a limited menu, and the prices are high. Most entrees are at least $16. Ordered the Mac and Cheese and...More

Is it a bookstore? Is it a restaurant? It can't decide so it does neither very well. LOUD! Glaring lights. Strange, uninviting arrangement of books. Strange, uninviting arrangement in the cafe. Overpriced food, reduced area of books. Nice try B&N but, you should have replicated...More

Great food, particularly sides that are huge...like their potatoes, broccoli & tabbouli are fabulous! A meal by themselves & so tasty. The food is "spendie", however portions are so large & so good they make two people happy. Doing that you have room to split...More

I'm still trying to figure what this is supposed to be. It is not a bookstore coffee shop, where you can linger with your books for some time. Which is frustrating, as that is what is still wanted. Combine that with B&N's reduced footprint, and...More

We couldn't decide if it was ok, or over-priced. We were not expecting such fancy food. It was expensive lunch! $20 a person, unless you get a tiny appetizer. Diet coke was $3 for the little 10 oz. Decorative bottle. No free refills. Probably not...More

I suppose in nordic Minnesota, one could appreciate the severe Scandinavian decor, but this new reworking left me cold. The old cafe is gone, replaced by an upscale "kitchen," which offers decent enough food for the price. But mind you, the menu is slim and...More
