Customer Comments

Simply one of the best places in the area... much more than just a coffee shop. They provide lunches (sandwiches, soups, salads) made with locally grown ingredients. Fresh bakery items that span a variety of special dietary needs and allergy concerns.


The Local Blend is easily the best coffee shop in Central Minnesota...

...probably the best in the whole state, and quite possibly the best in the country. I'm willing to stake what little reputation I have on that.


A nice surprise even for non-coffee lovers

As a non-coffee drinker I was skeptical that it would hold anthing for me. I had a sandwich and share a smoothie and enjoyed both of them. There were enticing desserts too but I was quite satified already.

Charming coffee shop

Grabbed coffee there but will definitely go back for food next time I'm in St. Joseph. Utterly charming coffee shop!
