Monday-Saturday 6am-3pm, Sunday 6am-2pm



An adorable bakery in Northfield, Brick Oven Bakery is perfect for coffee or lunch. 

Located just 45 minutes south of Minneapolis, Northfield is a fantastic day-trip location for families. Whether you are looking to do a little shopping, hiking, or just need to get out of the city, Northfield has a lot to offer. Including the Brick Oven Bakery!

This darling bakery is a must-stop for families headed to Northfield. Make it your first stop for coffee and a generous cinnamon roll, croissant or scone. They also have seasonal quiches available for those who need a heartier breakfast, and a great tea selection. Once you have your coffee, head out and enjoy the city.

Alternatively, Brick Oven Bakery is a great stop for lunch. Adults can enjoy menu items like soups, salads, and sandwiches, while children can munch on items from the kids' menu. Personally, I highly recommend their seasonal soup selection, or the TBA (Turkey, Bacon, and Apple) sandwich. Additionally, the Cowboy cookies are divine!

Be sure to grab freshly-baked bread, or cookies, to take home with you, too! Kids will certainly adore their whimsical sugar cookies. 

Upon arrival, order at the counter. You will receive a table number, and the server will bring your food to you (if you order to-go, wait in the bakery area for your order). For those dining in, select from any of the indoor or seasonal patio tables. High-chairs, kids' menus, and bathrooms are all available here. Brick Oven Bakery is on the edge of the downtown area and makes a perfect first stop before a day spent exploring Northfield.
