Southwest Minneapolis residents—particularly those in Kingfield and Tangletown—have long been smitten with Chef John Kraus' magnificent bakery-cafe, filling it to overflowing since it opened in mid-2010. Since then, Kraus and his staff have gone from success to success, dramatically expanding business as their popularity spread far and wide.
