I just saw a post praising Bars Bakery - what are the other favorites? I have heard repeatedly that it's Isle & Bun .. but let's hear some more suggestions :)

    Swede Hollow has the best caramel/pecan rolls in town.
    Sounds like the Bars Bakery team used to work there so I would guess they are similar, haven't been there yet!

      To clarify: I believe the situation is that the co-owner of Bars Bakery was the co-founder of the Swede Hollow Cafe, and the recipe for caramel rolls at Swede Hollow is in fact hers. Which you can now also get at Bars.

      I'm addicted to the caramel rolls at Kowalski's in Eagan. Crispy, crunchy outside, chewy and gooey inside. You have to get them before 10 or 11 o'clock -- if you can get there right away in the morning when they're still warm, they're crazy good.

        A thread like this really needs to include Isles Bun & Coffee in Minneapolis and Bread & Chocolate in St. Paul. Different styles of rolls, both are generally pretty damn good though.

        I'd say more, but my fingers are covered in caramel. :)

          Seven Stars Coffee House in Edina -- they sell out every morning they're so good!

            Don't know why - but a link was added to the wrong place...

          I'm very fond of the caramel-pecan rolls at Moose & Sadie's. They're a little low on caramel and nuts for my taste (I like my rolls drenched & covered), but I love that the dough is substantial and chewy, rather than the tastee-bread-like sponge of lesser rolls I've had.

          The baker at Moose & Sadie's used to be the co-owner and baker at the Birchwood, which is where I became addicted to these delights. Luckily, I rarely get downtown when M&S is open, or I would be even larger than I am now.

            Try Dreamcoat Coffee in Oakdale MN. It's a new coffee house in the old Mrs. B's building. Caramel rolls are made fresh everyday and they are dripping in gooey caramel...not bread-y like a lot of caramel rolls. Great coffee, baked goods and enviornment.
