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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
