Wuollet Bakery - Wayzata

Reviewed By JoKiddo - Portland, Oregon

Everything is so good you will never want to leave. Preorder their desserts for special events. Can't go wrong with anything. That said, I love their tortes and their lemon bars are out of this world. They are also famous for their incredible Christmas cookies - the turtle nut and the wedding cakes are my faves, and the peanut brittle. Often you can find a Groupon. In any case, they always have samples out. A few tables and coffee, maybe sandwiches, too.

Ben & Jerry's

For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of – especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores – nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.

Reviewed By Steve L - Victoria MN USA

Good place to stop for an after dinner treat. The waffle cones are very large and good. Ice cream is very good as you would expect at a Ben & Jerry's. Many flavors to choose from.

McCormick's Irish Pub and Restaurant

Reviewed By Doug B - Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

We visited for a friend's 70th birthday party and he had reserved a private room. The service was wonderful, with our glasses being kept filled during the social hour, hors d'oevres delivered promptly, and the food being brought, also, on time. The manager and the servers kept checking to see that all was well--and did so in an unobtrusive manner. It was a very fine experience, and we will return.

Caribou coffee is pretty good--I prefer Dunn Brothers. In the morning they have very good oatmeal and sausage biskets. This is always busy and unfortunately there is no drive through. Two doors at each end make it pretty chilly in the winter.

Met my sweetie here one evening between work shifts. Great variety of people on a Sunday night. Staff is always warm and welcoming. This Starbucks feels really homey - love the remodel!

6Smith

Reviewed By JeanaF - Minneapolis

I’ve been lucky to visit 6Smith on many occasions both with friends and my adult sons, their wives and kids. The food is fantastic for all occasions...my favorite was probably the Sea Bass for dinner or the bread assortment for lunch appetizer, complete with dips. I even had my birthday dinner there with six friends. A bit noisy, but tolerable once you accept that is the situation w most busy restaurants. sometimes we eat at the bar and alwaysa have good service there, too. Summers mean you can dine outside in the lakeside area. So much fun for all. The grandkids like the small, free beach right next door on one side. It’s complete with play equipment.

I love Yogurt Lab, but my visit last night turned my stomach. The place is filthy! Spilled yogurt all over the machines and the floor. Topping bar all over the place. Trash can overflowing with garbage. One girl sitting at register. How about hiring someone to clean the place? It looks unsanitary and unappetizing.

CoV Wayzata

Reviewed By consultme - minneapolis

If you’re in Wayzata having a client lunch, this is a good spot: nice atmosphere, easy to find location, professional service. It is expensive for what you get, recipes are not creative and the taste of the dishes, nothing special.

I wouldn’t go there for great food, creatives approaches. I wouldn’t eat there for my own choice of dining but do and will use it for client meetings in the area.

Bellecour

Reviewed By ormond42 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

While a full course meal with drinks might well run at $100 per person; the brunch, including the mandatory pastry basket was both delicious and reasonably priced. The service and ambiance were both classy and understated. As an older person torn between gluttony and parsimony I was delighted by the experience.

Gianni's Steakhouse

Reviewed By KimmLSI - Minneapolis, Minnesota

It was a busy holiday Saturday night. We were promptly seated by thei owner herself in a spacious booth. The location wasn't ideal as we viewed the finishing area for the wait staff from the kitchen. We were simply happy to be there and not...MoreThank you for taking time to write about your experience with us. I’m happy you enjoyed the food and service. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
