Rustica Bakery is up next on our coffee-laden, September adventure. Off west Lake Street in Minneapolis, I went there with my friend, Thang from Young Professionals of Minneapolis (ypminneapolis.org) and immediately fell in love with their bakery case. Eclairs, chocolate chip cookies, bread pudding, you name it. I nabbed their latte and I could rave about that alone all day long!Praised by Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, The Today Show, James Beard Foundation and even Time Magazine. What accolades don’t they have? I mean, Rustica was named the Top 10 Best Bread Bakeries in America, listed as having the Best Baguettes in America, voted America’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies and America’s Best Bread Bakery, awarded Outstanding Baker in 2015 and Outstanding Pastry Chef 2014. Can’t be a coincidence… I suggest you stop in and try for yourself – if you haven’t already.
