Foursquare Tips

  • The chocolate cookies are to die for!
  • Have an espresso.
  • Voted top 5 hot chocolate to get you through the cold! Ample seating, made-to-perfection hot chocolate; the barista taking an extra minute is worth the wait and makes anyone want to come back for more
  • Try a Bostok. I don't know what it is either, other than that it is delicious.
  • Try the Latte
  • Best bread ever!
  • Obviously the pastries and breads here are fantastic, but if you want a really good sandwich, this is a great spot to hit around lunch time.
  • Ask for Cade he knows his stuff
  • Efficiency is not their competitive advantage
  • Delicious tea and a lot of European bakery food.
  • Their Clover machine helps to speed up the single-cup brew. It's great to have knowledgeable folks, like those at Rustica, to answer your questions rather than simply order-takers like at the chains.
  • Voted as Best Bakery by City Pages in the 2010 Best of the Twin Cities Issue. Its a toss-up between the bittersweet chocolate and ginger cookies for ultimate supremacy, so its best to get both
  • Everything here is good, both liquid and solid, but I usually get a miel or vanilla latte. Eclairs and bittersweet chocolate cookies are amazing.
  • Daily specials at the Twin Cities' best bakery include Pugliese (Tuesday), egg braid (Friday), and pain de mie (Sunday). Rustic and levain loaves are amazing any day of the week.
  • Wait until a sunny day in the dead of winter. Bundle up and don't forget your boots! Walk across a frozen Lake of the Isles. Weather these elements just for lunch at Rustica. Leave room for dessert!
  • Unbelievable coffee and pastries. Caffeine and carbs;does life get any better???
  • The iced mochas are awesome too.
  • Bread bread bread
  • Get the eclair. It will change your life.
  • Get the eclair and ask for Cade. He's in the picture.
