I dream about this place. . . a lot! – I can't even describe how much I love Isle's Bun and Coffee. Their cinnamon rolls are excellent and so are their caramel and pecan caramel rolls. I am a coffee drinker and I think they make the best americano in town. Both the pastries and the coffee are very reasonably priced as well.
No, they don't have a lot of tables but if they did, that would mean a larger space. Part of their cozy charm, in my opinion, is their quaint, old building. Isles Bun and Coffee is one of only a few places that resembles a "European" feel in the city.
The only drawback is that they don't have a gluten free cinnamon bun. I am now gluten free so I can no longer enjoy them. . .but I still dream about them! Go get one (or two) while you can!
Great Buns, Coffee is not so hot – Great cinnamon rolls and i'm not a fan of cinnamon rolls to begin with. The difference, it's sweet without being too sweet. I also love that I get to control how much icing I want.
the fresh OJ was great, the coffee was not. I'm a "transplant to MN" and i'm not a fan of the local coffee, but if that is your thing you will enjoy the coffee.
Avoid Saturday mornings around 10am unless you want to stand in line for 20 - 30 minutes, but it's well worth the wait.
Can I say that I love that most of the people who where in line were people who just finished working out, what a way to treat yourself following a work out.
BEST FN ROLLS IN TOWN. – Isle's Bun has THE best cinnamon rolls in Minnesota, if not in the midwest including Chicago. You can also get a great latte or coffee or FRESH Squeezed OJ. They aren't Starbucks, they are more of a bakery not a coffee shop. But try finding fresh squeezed OJ at Starbucks or even Caribou these days. These people do great work, they know what they are doing and do it better than anyone in Minneapolis. If you want the clean and sterile feeling of a huge corporation then go find it, if you want real love you can eat, go to Isle Buns!!!! Thanks Isle's!
Puppy Dog Tails – Yummy baked goodies. Very few tables. Coffee drinks are usually not that great. It?s ok, BUT I think it?s the only place in the Twin Cities where you can get freshly baked goodies AND fresh coffee at the same place.
Nice Buns! – ...but I go there for the Wonderful Scones and the BEST coffee in the Twin Cities!
I am reluctant to spread the word on this place, but it is simply the best.
And I like the people that work there too.
best cinnamon rolls around – This place makes the best cinnamon rolls in the world do your self a favor and get some you will not be sorry and ask for extra frosting.
A quaint neighborhood spot serving up the tasty cinnamon buns. – In Short
Isle's is famous for one thing: cinnamon buns. It may have a limited menu, but these heavenly buns are to die for. Parents treat kids and themselves to giant, mouthwatering pastries oozing with a delicious caramel, cinnamon and nut glaze that's out of this world. Sit and enjoy one with a cup of coffee, or take a whole dozen to work through a tough deadline.
must try at least once... – and you'll be hooked! A friend raved about the rolls here, but I was skeptical. Oh, they were every bit as good as she said, better even, a little piece of heaven right here on earth. The place is tiny, but the rolls, oh, the rolls are an experience you cannot miss.
