Wilde Roast Cafe Reviews

Add your review for Wilde Roast Cafe.

  • kitalooclef reviewWilde Roast gets its name from Oscar Wilde, the 19th century playwright. The owners have tried to create an ambiance that would be to Wilde's taste, and ended up with a supremely comfortable and pleasing atmosphere. There are leather chairs, couches, as well as tables, along with a piano and local art. The light fixtures and decor are all very nice and at night it can be quite romantic. They have a fabulous menu and locals love to stop in at Wilde Roast for lunch. The coffee is also superb, as well as desserts and a nice wine selection.

    This is a good place to dine or hang out and read/study. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, and they stock local papers as well as the New York Times for patrons.

    Free wireless is a draw for the college crowd while many types of entertainment often snag others to stop by. Their website is always up-to-date and provides the latest schedules of entertainment.

    55555 by Julie Parfrey

    55555 by Joelle Parfrey

    55555 by Albert L.


  • Jeremy jIt was okay... Had pot pie and French pie and they tasted alright. Not mind blowing but not bad either.

    33333 by Jeremy j


  • Stacey C.Yumm! GF options, fresh fruit and juice, great coffee, fluffy egg omelet. Friendly service. Vintage European vibe, like a French cafe in the 1920s. I wanna go back!

    55555 by Stacey C.


  • Allie CLOVE the French dip sandwich

    55555 by Allie C


  • isabel fajardoThe mimosas, smoked Gouda hash browns, and freshly squeezed orange juice make for a fantastic start to the day. Have I mentioned the river's a stone's throw away?

    55555 by isabel fajardo

    55555 by Amy S.


  • City Pages Street TeamThe menu, which consists mostly of sandwiches, salads, and pizzas isn't revolutionary, but its offerings tend to be comforting and consistent.

    55555 by City Pages Street Team


  • Caitlin C.Hosts are incredibly rude and have awful customer service.

    11111 by Caitlin C.


  • Christina O.Love the "Will & Grace" touch! Order the "Karen Walker" if you like dirty martini's. You won't be disappointed.

    55555 by Christina O.

    55555 by Mark T.

    33333 by Sean B.

    55555 by Jake B.


  • ShannonThis place did not have good lunch. Very sub par. We should have gotten brunch- it looked pretty good after we already ordered ours. And the so-called "amazing tots" not amazing at all.

    22222 by Shannon

  • City Pages Street TeamFamilies of all stripes have always been welcome at Wilde Roast, but the expanded seating & access to the outside makes this an ideal location. Follow it up with a family hike around Nicollet Island.

    55555 by City Pages Street Team


  • Lance T.The Bete Noir flourless cake looks better than it tastes. Give it a miss, and try another desert from the menu.

    55555 by Lance T.


  • Pamela D.Food is food. Staff not so much. I've been going there daily since Dec 1. the same staff members who are always working never remember me. none of them smile either. Guess they are better than me :-)

    55555 by Pamela D.

    22222 by Emily F.

  • Lauren M.The sweet potato fries are amazingly addictive.

    55555 by Lauren M.


  • Alan EOk is it table service or counter service. In serious need of figuring out what they are and how to do it and stick to a plan. Ten minutes in a line to be told take out only is a joke.

    22222 by Alan E


  • AlexandraGet the coffee frappe freeze!

    33333 by Alexandra


  • Breon N.The food is ok, but a lil pricey for lunch. Burger + fries + pop = $14.55. Plus, since it's cafe style, there's no service after your food has been dropped.

    33333 by Breon N.


  • Chris R.Beautiful interior design and amazing food to boot. I had the goat cheese salad which was delish, and my friend had sweet potato fries which come with marshmellow dipping sauce. Amazing.
