My husband and I stopped in for a quick coffee and a muffin and both were great! We didn't stay long, but the atmosphere was very laid back with lots of little spots to read, chat, or study. We would stop in again!

Stopped in with a friend for a quick meal and coffee before going to a play. We shared the Raspberry Salad and found it delicious. Coffee was very good. The atmosphere is cozy and pleasant.

Downtown Anoka is filled with antique shops and boutiques. I knew that there were also a few restaurants peppering the area too, but being new to the neighborhood I had no idea that Avant Garden was a coffee shop. It wasn't until a friend invited...More

They sell quality coffee, tea, homemade sandwiches, and soups.Occasional evening folk music. A great place to catch a bite. Very popular with the shoppers on Main Street.

This is my favorite place for coffee in the north metro. It's a unique location with a great atmosphere, without having that manufactured ambiance feel of the chains. Oh, and the coffee is top shelf stuff.

Our favourite coffee shop - hence our nickname. We love the unusual decor and an amazing range of coffees and superb gateaux. Sometimes there is live music in the evening.

Avant Garden is a gem in historic downtown Anoka, just east of the Rum River and Mississippi Rivers. Great service, paninis made to order, and a nice ambiance with local radio (Minnesota Public Radio) playing. Definitely a step up from the dime-a-dozen coffee shops around...More
