    Voted by City Pages as having the Best Wine List in 2010's Best of the Twin Cities. Barbette’s bubbly selection is both broader and better priced than you’re likely to find around town.

    Royale with Cheese is the best burger I've had in Minneapolis. Brie, carmelized onions on an english muffin-y bun w/ side of hollandaise. Pure amazing ridiculousness. Order it! Read more

    Try the Whipped Truffle Brie. Just when you thought you couldn’t look at another brie, this whipped version lures you with an earthy touch of black truffles, elevating the cheese to a new form.

    Barbette reduces it's carbon footprint by using re-usable to go containers, composting food waste, switching to energystar lightbulbs, using local, seasonal produce, and buying local

    It may not scream "Bring your kids here!" yet many do - daily quiche and bakery specials are always full of seasonal ingredients and baked with loving care. Eggs Benedict is the must try.
