French Meadow Bakery & Cafe
Gordon, the founder of French Meadow, is a certified macrobiotic teacher,
and for many years prior to her baking bread, taught cooking and lifestyle
classes at the Traditional Center for Macrobiotics in St. Paul. Lynn
consulted with individuals with cancer and severe illnesses, with a teaching
emphasis on healing with whole foods. French Meadow was a natural evolution,
and needed bread in the marketplace because of Lynn’s concern with healthy
lifestyle, nutrition, and environmental issues.
21st-century creativity with additive-free ingredients, and this is what you
get. The much-heralded French Meadow's dedication to organic fare goes way
beyond any established norm.
Baked goods, breakfasts and about anything that's good for you at lunch or dinner make the French Meadow a South Minneapolis dining essential.
A global selection of ingredients and styles is evident throughout, from Middle Eastern and Asian wraps to an antipasto plate or Vietnamese spring roll. Appropriate wines and beer are available at budget-friendly prices. You can place your order at the counter during the day, and at 5PM table service kicks in. Tables are always on a seat-yourself basis, so stake one out when you enter.

Recently Dr. Susan Love, author of The Breast Book and many other books on women’s health, appeared on Good Morning America, and recommended French Meadow's sprouted Woman’s Bread with soy Isoflavones for women of all ages to prevent osteoporosis, breast cancer, and for overall support and balance of the endocrine system. She had purchased the loaf at a store in Manhattan, and French Meadow has been receiving inquiries since then.
