Truth Love & Clean Cutlery World Edition

French Meadow is the only restaurant from Minnesota included in the World edition


"Is there an Alice Waters of American baking? If so it might well be Minneapolis’ Lynn Gordon"  


"French Meadow has led, articulated, and demonstrated everything right and good about food in America in the last several decades: championing organics before there really was such a thing; promoting sustainable agriculture; making and serving slow foods; and generally providing a tasty little oasis of thoughtful and healthy living since the dawn of time. Or 1985, more specifically."

Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, James Beard award-winning food & wine writer

Signature Organic Bakery


French Meadow's legacy is our famous organic bakery, founded by owner Lynn Gordon in 1985, the first organically-certified bakery in the country.

We maintain that tradition in our on-site bakery, where every day we are baking the signature organic yeast-free breads served in our restaurants, as well as an array of delicious desserts, including indulgent gluten-free & vegan specialties. Check out our dessert menu where there's something luscious for everyone.
