Beautiful store, laid out so you don't even know how much time your spending looking at all of the wonderful products. What I mean to say, even for non grocery store shoppers it's a great experience. And they had family sized goulash. My mother used to make goulash and it was one of my favorite meals. I've never seen it in a store before And if you're on a diet do not I repeat do not go by the bakery section it is totally wonderful. And I mean don't go because your curious or you will get just a teensy little sweet pastry or two, or three. Lololol! Like I did. And of course that's mostly all the pictures I took. So you won't have to look in the pastry shop. They also have wonderful soups, and pre-made dinners and sandwiches, for brown sackers and bachelor's and bachelorettes. Well I could go on but maybe you should go see for yourself.

Refreshing to walk into a unique grocery. Nice sit down eating area. Enjoy a meal from the deli or special beverage with fresh bakery goods. Room to bring friends. Service is excellent.

Manager Caleb is a Rockstar. He went out of his way to help me out in the deli. Then I left my salmon filet at the register. Caleb helped me out again and kept it up front for me when I returned. EXTREMELY nice as well as professional. Top notch service on as well as top quality food. 5 stars ALL THE WAY

Interesting layout and we'll appointed. Great gift corner with an excellent and varied selection of inventory. Lovely produce section. A really pleasant young man, Chris, a front end supervisor, took my groceries out to my vehicle. An all around pleasant shopping experience. The only suggestion I would have is to make the prices for your plants less excessive.

Being they don't have many Black or ethnic shoppers Beware you will be treated without the same courtesy as others. They have one black cashier, I observed her checking out shopers and baking groceries. I voice my opinion to the male Supervisor. 4 others were standing near her no teamwork. When the Pandemic had the covid mask restrictions The male Supervisor would I also bring me a mask and I watched others he was intimidated to request them to mask up. I really enjoy checking out with Faith she is the hardest working and friendly to everyone. I mentioned she should check working elsewhere which would pay more. She said she was happy.. I shop at Lunds Byerlys, when I walk in Chanhassen or Navere. Everyone is friendly like faith. They ask how ive been or ask where, I've been. I am a valued customer there. However, at Kowalski the one and only gracious worker was asked why she was so friendly to me. Not with everyone else, as she is They pointed their finger with this Black shopper. My son is an attorney and said I should write this review before further action is warranted. Equal rights please. Try and smile and be happy to all regardless of skin shade. I've lived her for years My kids went to Breck, and Minnetonka. Today the male Supervisor walked out when I did. Then he turned around, ENOUGH OF YOUR POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. SAY HELLO, YOU SEE ME EVERYDAY.

I always say that Kowalski's is a lovely shopping experience! But the prices are really too high to ever make it a habit. It is a boutique market, not a grocery store. Stop in for an experience, but you can't feed your family from Kowalski's if you need value for your buck.

Ordered my Easter dinner on line and wrong location ( my fault). Shore view location, 40 miles out of my way. .Deli associate went out of her way to ask store Manager, Luke if we could accommodate for my order and error. He said they have a courier service that could drive my order to my home in the next few hours. Deli associate and store manager were so kind it touched my heart. Excellent Customer Service, Excelsior store is my favorite. Happy ???? Easter.

Great friendly service with a premium price! You will definitely pay more for food here. If you don't mind blowing and breaking the bank on food then Kowalski's in excelsior is the place for you to go and drop every last dime you have, especially excelsior!

I am always happy with the quality of the fish and produce. Pre made meals are nicely varied and the staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. Some things cost a bit more but I think it's worth it ☺️

We have been going here since this location has opened. In the beginning Kowalskis Excelsior had everything from rabbit to rare dried pastas with fantastic quality control. Now the store seems to push their greed with at least half the building filled with kowalskis branded foods and half the quality control. Although if you pick the right thing it can be good, but it’s never the same twice. Caprese salad for example : buy it one day and comes with fresh cheese , tomato, and perfect mixture of olive oil/balsamic . The next day it’s all off, either all olive oil with no mix of balsamic, or it’s a five day old tomato, or both. Homemade cookies are another example: One day they’re fantastic and you go back to buy more and it’s like they came from a completely different country, let alone a different person or a different store. The produce is terribly overpriced and never have what I need- had to run to a different to store more than once to complete a recipe. The meat department is great, but I can see the cuts are not as well sourced as they once were. If you shop here, be sure to read the dates before purchasing and skip the kowalskis branded /premade foods. We were so excited to have them here in excelsior, but it seems they’re pricing their products according to its demographic location like many businesses do now. I, for one, will not play that game anymore for its subpar products and services. I will drive the extra few minutes to Byerly’s.

Easy to find what I needed. Loved the salad bar. The only complaint was the broccoli was stale.

Twice have gone and wanted bakery/desserts. Absolutely no one behind the counter. Other Kowalski employees walked by customers waiting at bakery/dessert area and never stopped to help.

Pleasant shopping experience. Prices are higher than what you find at a regular grocery store, but typical of what I expect from an all-organic store. Employees are always nice and eager to help.

Once at a Kowalki's market, you know everything is going to be in its place and high quality. This time, just at their Starbucks store. Quick and easy.

Kowalskis is clearly a class act-- their store in Excelsior has not only given us a store, but great store! It's too expensive to do our stocking up on basics, but it has all the based covered when we want to pick up a dinner on any given weeknight! One of our faves is the fresh squeezed orange juice. You just can't beat that fresh flavor. May Kowalskis live on forever in Excelsior!!!

This is such a great local store. We were thrilled when they upgraded their produce section with fresh organic produce. So much better than the produce section they opened with. They also have a surprisingly well- curated gift section, fresh flowers, and an amazing soup and hot food bar. We feel very lucky to have this one-stop shop with a gourmet feel in Excelsior. We were also very happy to see that they just added a plant-based meats section! Saves us an extra trip across town looking for these items.

Beautiful and clean shopping experience. Lots of natural and healthy versions of food brands. Could have more organic fruit and veg options, but they may not be available. We visited in Sept of 2020. Lots of made-on-site savory and bakery items to enjoy!

Beautiful, modern, and clean grocery store. There is a wide variety of gluten free and organic options. Lots of fresh produce, take-out options, large deli, fresh sushi, and baked goods. Generously sized salad and olive bars. Staff is courteous and friendly, and everyone is very mindful of social distancing and proper mask wearing during COVID-19. It's a little on the pricy side but it's worth it given the quality you receive. Located conveniently in Excelsior near downtown.

Good crowded too much merchandise in too small an area. Got the purple artichokes. Very fresh and cool. Like all other stores could use more employees serving customers and less in the back doing the cooking and making salads

Inevitably a bit more expensive for regular items you could find elsewhere, but I frequently find things that I'd expect to have to go to a specialty store for, which saves a trip and is worth the premium. Beautiful store, great bakery and deli, and it's nice to have unconventional grab and go meal items available when you don't want to cook but also want to avoid pizza and the drive-through.
