Wilde Roast Cafe, New Location
65 Main St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414
Right off the bat, the new Wilde Roast Cafe was definitely an impressive step up from their previous location just a mile away. They scored a prime location right in St. Anthony Main, which is an area with all brick stone sidewalks and an old vintage feel that Wilde Roast seems to fit perfectly into. Wilde Roast Cafe sources their coffee through Alakef Roasters which is based out of Duluth, MN. From their testimonial page on http://www.alakef.com/, it seems like a few other coffee shops are serving Alakef in the outer Twin Cities area including Anoka and Zimmerman. For me personally, its hard to really pick up any specific flavor profiles when you are getting served coffee out of an airpot but this light roast coffee was suitable for the time being. It definitely met the standards of having some fine flavors and acidity that wasn’t overrun by some burnt after taste. I was able to find a spot tucked away amongst the food, coffee, and ice cream being served, and even chased the coffee with a Surly Furious off their drink menu. I really enjoyed the fact that I could get a good cup of coffee and a decent meal either in their outdoor seating area or amongst the amazing layout of the dining area built inside of Wilde Roast. I will definitely be taking another visit soon and look forward to trying out an espresso drink possibly next time.
