Where are the Most Delicious Carrot Cakes in Minneapolis?

Hi All!

What are the must-try carrot cakes in the Minneapolis area?

We're planning to bring a few slices into our office this week and try them all, but need suggestions. Anything that's walking distance from downtown Minneapolis would be preferred, but I'll take recommendations from all over the city, too.

    @Sarah, I wish I could! We're all visiting consultants and had a massive change to our schedule, so we only tried the one at McCormick and Schmick. The general consensus was that the one at Oceanaire is better. If we get back, I'll give y'all an update. Thanks for the suggestions!

      Wilde Roast Cafe is very good.

          Pizza Luce used to have a killer one. I haven't had it for years, but I seem to recall that once PL expanded it became not as good.

            Yeah, I'd categorize Luce's as ok, but nothing special.

            I have had good carrot cake at both A Baker's Wife and the Birchwood Cafe. Neither within walking distance from downtown.

              The one from Union is very non-traditional, but quite good.

                Keys Cafe in the Foshay should be on your "walking around DT Mpls" list.
