We will relocate from Germany to Minneapolis (Chaska) in August. We know that we will miss the good German bread most. Any idea where we can find really good bread in Minneapolis?

Is there a German grocery store in the Twin Cities?

The only authentic German place I know of is The Black Forest Inn on 26th & Nicollet in south Minneapolis. I don't know about grocery stores, though.

My Mom is from Germany and I know good German bread. I grew up in L.A. and there are several German delis out there where you CAN find authentic German bread. I haven't been able to find that here (and I've looked because I love hearty, rustic bread). And not sure what kind of German bread you are looking for (since there are many kinds...rye? "Farmers" bread? Brotchen?). There USED to be a German store in the suburbs when I first moved here (German Haus??)...that had all things German, but they closed down a year or so ago.

For really good, fresh bread, there's a grocery store in Minneapolis called The Wedge that bakes many different kinds of bread daily and they are all absolutely delicious...crusty, hearty...but not traditional German bread. That's however where I go now if I want GOOD bread. Also, Whole Foods Market has yummy, hearty breads (but fewer varieties than The Wedge)

Great Harvest Bread is pretty good, and a quick google map search brings up the French Meadow, New French Bakery and Turtle Bread Company. I havn't been to the latter 3 but they come up in conversation once in a while so they're well known. Most grocery stores will also stock artisan breads as well (usually something tough and chewy). I don't know how any of this compares to what you are used to, but starting in the 80's people started getting more interested in bread. None of these are specifically German, however.

We also have Aldi's but ... oh, well, that's probably not what you meant :-)

Turtle Bread Co is pretty popular and very good, but I don't think it's specifically German. They do have a lot of varieties though. Not to mention their salami sandwiches, which I could probably live off of.

I can't think of a specifically German place off-hand, but Rustica is well known for its bread. In addition to their standard daily options they also have rotating daily selections. They're located in Calhoun Village in Minneapolis, but I believe some of their bread is also available elsewhere now. I assume there's some sort of decent bakery closer out your direction, too. There used to be more Breadsmiths around the Twin Cities; maybe check to see if there's a location in your part of the metro area.

A lot of the farmers markets have people selling home made breads and baked items, might be worth a try not to mention they are a good way to waste a couple hours anyway. Check out the MInnesota grown website for one close to you.
