    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
