Born out of our love of coffee, Brio is the premier coffee shop/bistro in the northern suburbs. After 11 years of growth as State of Bean and The Bean, Brio offers fresh roasted coffee, breakfast, and a lunch cafe.
Featuring a menu of classic tastes with a modern flair, in-house roasted coffee, house made soups and original recipes, Brio offers tantalizing food & drink usually found only by driving into the heart of the Twin Cities. Brio is truly "a taste of Uptown in your hometown."
As I am sure many of you are aware, the State of Minnesota announced the closure of all bars and restaurants for sit-down service until March 27th. There is no doubt that this will put a significant strain on thousands of businesses, employees, and families throughout the area. Unfortunately, we are no exception. Earlier today we were forced to lay-off a majority of our staff as we cope with the ever-changing circumstances around us. Despite this setback, and with the hope that when the storm passes we can continue to grow and to support the community, we will remain open through our drive-thru (which, if you haven't noticed, was recently redone!).
For now we will take it week by week. Tomorrow (3/17) until Sunday (3/22) our drive-thru will be open from 8 am until 2 pm each day for both coffee and food orders. If you would like to order food, please be aware that we will only have one or two staff members working, and for the best service you can (and should) call ahead and pre-order (763-205-3307). Our food menu is available here, by clicking menu below.
Also... we know you still need coffee at home... so we'll be roasting later this week to keep the home-brewers brewing.
Finally, on a personal note, I would like to thank the many, many people that have reached out and have asked me how they can support us through these trying times. I can not thank you enough for the notes and the well-wishes...
Honestly, the best way to help is to come see me through the drive-thru! I'll be here! On behalf of Brio...thank you! -Amber
