M ST. Cafe
Book your next event with us
We love having lunch at M St. Cafe! Every time, the food is delicious, the service is paced correctly, and the atmosphere is just what we hope for!
This is the perfect restaurant for good food and a wonderful atmosphere. We could actually converse with friends and be heard. We met with folks from Norway who we had not seen in over 50 years. It was perfect. Everyone had a great time. We ate, talked and took photos. We would come back again!!!!!!!
Big open space means that there is a lot of noise in the dining area. Was hoping for a quieter dining experience. Only a few wait staff working so they were slow to remove plates from our table and refresh beverages. The buffet had a nice setup and tasty food. It is a great location if you are seeing a show at the Ordway.
We have gone to the sunday brunch many time over the last few years. we have always came away happy. But this last time the food quality was not great. Cold food and limited amounts were a problem.
The food was not very hot. And a lot was gone.
We ate at M St. Cafe for Sunday Brunch (again finally!). Quality, very tasteful food unlike most buffets in a light, elegant surrounding. I truly enjoy the ambiance which feels open as if you are in a patio setting but marble floors and rich trim with minimal if any echo enabling casual conversation. Service was excellent as usual. Prime rib was very good and I really like the lox, shrimp, and salad. The smaller, thicker waffles are fantastic and even better with either the bananas or mixed fruit on them. The bacon is a thicker cut and done just how I like. The sausage links have great seasoning and are not greasy. I did not have eggs or the made to order omelet this time, but the ingredients are fresh. There were about 6 or 7 different types of dessert and several (yep!) were impeccably done. In summary, the number of items may not be as extensive as other larger venue buffets, but there is no substitute for the quality and particular selection here as well as the setting. Highly recommended.
Appeared that the kitchen was not prepared for larger than usual Final Four brunch crowd. Kept running out of food and not enough cooks working all stations created long lines and wait times.
Everything was fine except for our wait-person. She rushed us all the way, expected us to order before we had read the menu, brought 2 glasses of ice tea to each of us when she finally brought it, gave us the bill 1/2 way through our meal, hovered until I put out the credit card. She was also in a hurry to reset the tables around us, noisily, especially with the cups and saucers. I’ve never experienced the behavior at the St. Paul Hotel, or any other restaurant, unfortunate.
Once again Florence greeted us with a big smile.
My wife had the French toast and I decided with help from our server to try the corned beef hash-a Winner.
Once again we had a most enjoyable visit!
We have always had great service (servers) and wonderful food. The hostess could use some improvement in attitude...but everything else is terrific.
Our server Florence was fantastic. Super friendly and accommodating. Food and beverage are always delicious.
Great ambience, food, and service. Wonderful place to hang out with friends and family whiling away the hours with food and conversation!
Our server was very thoughtful and attentive. Desert portions were reasonable.
We have had breakfast at MSt. Cafe the Thursday of High School hockey tournament weekend for many years; this is the first time we have not had to wait an extraordinary amount of time for our meals.. Our waitress, though very busy, waited on us in a timely manner. She was friendly and efficient. The food was good overall.
Everything was fine, but sandwich was a little rich. Like to come here
We always experience a great service experience every time we dine at the M St. Café. The food was great. Noise was minimal. The service our waitress provided was awesome. Glass topped full with water and not once seen it empty.
Very tasty food, attentive service, and quiet environment. The latter is a big issue for me and you rate highest on my list of places to enjoy a meal in a quiet environment when we are visiting the Twin Cities. Interesting that you also ask me to rate quietness. You are on to something there.
This is easily one of our favorite restaurants. You can choose from the daily different sideboard menu and salad bar, or order from the menu. Staff is always exceptional - great service - always friendly and accommodating. If you would like a delightful meal, in a beautiful atmosphere, along with being treated really, really, well, then have lunch here (they close @ 2)
Excellent service and food this morning. Our server, Sue, was prompt, courteous,and delightful!
Florence was great as always!!!!!!!
The M Street Cafe is always a great choice. The side board has something for every taste and the menu offer much variety. I have the Asian Chicken Salad and it was full of chicken. It was a bit spicy, but very flavorful . I'd suggest making a reservation for brunch.
Sunday brunch is superb . The choice of offerings is very nice. There is a wonderful buffet with an omelet station for omelets of choice. Other egg dishes are also available and anything else can be had from the kitchen. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The place is attractive and well laid out.
It is not quite what we were expecting, felt very rushed and was crowded, I was expecting the St. Paul Grille feel, my mistake not theirs! Our server was excellent , no issues there at all. The Food was beautifully displayed and looked amazing.. but it wasn't . The desserts were terrible. The prime rib and bacon were good , everything else was really ho hum and luck warm. I gave it a 3 star because that is truly was it is, not terrible and not great just ho hum..
This was absolutely amazing!!! Everything about this buffet was great. VERY clean. I am NOT a buffet fan but this was amazing!!
Post Christmas, and Birthday
Had a wonderful Sunday brunch! Food was delicious and our server (Sue) was the best!!!! Looking forward to next time!
The service was fantastic as always...I had the california club and gave it a 3 star only
We decided after our family dined here for Thanksgiving todo this again for Christmas. The selection of food was very widespread, all the quality was top notch, excellent service from all of the staff, and a great alternative to the massive cooking for the holiday for a small group.
The Christmas Brunch was a wonderful experience for us. The food, service, and ambiance was outstanding. This may very well become a tradition for us!
For the most part, it was just fine. However, we had to wait a half-hour before we were seated even though reservations were made in February! We did have very fine service from Steve and will ask for him next year.
It was a festive Christmas brunch with very good food both breakfast and dinner. The staff was marvelous and friendly, and the ambiance was great. The desserts were to die for. We’ll probably make it a Christmas tradition when we’re in town.
They have an incredible buffet for many holidays. We love coming for the Christmas Day buffet. So many amazing food options. The service is fantastic.
We had a wonderful holiday brunch at M Street Cafe. Servers were gracious and provided excellent service. We will go back again soon.
Our waiter Steve was professional , friendly, and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful time.
Good service and good food. I thought it would be quieter but hard to hear my colleagues so not conducive for conversation.
This is a favorite for many years. Great food, friendly, sophisticated without pretense. St Small at its best.
I ordered the Turkey Burger again and I am always impressed. We appreciate the fantastic service provided by Rebecca each visit. She is the best and has become someone we look forward to seeing each month.
I am a regular correct work and a friend and I brought our kids after Disney on Ice. The staff was very respectful to adults and kids. Thank you for making this a great experience.
The berry ricotta French toast was AMAZING! Brenda did a nice job of taking care of us. Only complaint was she ran the rang the cards for the wrong tabs.
M St. Cafe is a great option for a business meal that is a bit more informal. I love the St. Paul Grill, but it can be noisy. This is a quiet and cozy atmosphere and is particularly nice during the holiday season. The service is second to none.
