If you spotted a massive star, would you approach them and ask for a photo or autograph? I think you have to, especially if you're a fan of their work. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an amazing memory.

I would bet there were plenty of selfies snapped when the global pop sensation, recognized as Time Magazine's Entertainer of the Year in 2021, showed up for lunch. The server got a picture, and the Minnesota Cafe thanked the singer for her decision to support their small, local establishment.

French Meadow Café & Bluestem Bar can be found at 2610 Lyndale Ave S in Minneapolis. It began as a bakery almost 40 years ago, pioneering organic certification in the United States in 1985 and focusing on yeast-free bread.


The Uptown Minneapolis cafe, established in the early 1990s, is known for its natural, local, and organic cuisine, accommodating various dietary preferences like vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan.

In 2013, the establishment expanded to include the Bluestem Bar, providing full table service, sustainable wines, local beers on tap, and a private dining space.
