    Voted top ten late-night restaurants! Fries at any hour are welcome, especially when they are served addictively crispy, perfectly salted and served with Barbette's creamy aioli.

    Had the ham and gruyere omelet. The greens were perfect, the gluten free bread was stellar, and the omelet was so fluffy and beautiful! The Art Deco is also super fun, and the service is great!

    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.

    French Bistro fair, small menu in american standards, authentic. People like the frites here (small cut twice fried I believe), you can order them as a side and skip the steak

    The green curry/coconut mussels are to die for. Pair with the herbed Brie + bread for one of the best meals in Minneapolis.

    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.

    Voted top 10 French Fries! Not only are the fries at Café Barbette tasty, they're pretty, too.

    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.

    The French fries were not undersold, get the fries. Also great risotto and cocktails. Wonderful staff.

    The croissants are 'old world' great. For breakfast, have the ham and gruyere (with caramelized onions)!

    It's hard to go wrong here, but the fries will remain a personal favorite, and their Bastille Day is a good time in the summer.

    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

    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
