Red Bench Bakery is a family owned cafe in downtown Chaska, Minnesota specializing in classic American and French pastries, breads and other sweet treats. We are passionate about supporting local businesses and building community through food.

Red Bench Bakery is located in a historic district building that operated as a bakery from 1884 until closing in 2009. In 2017, with months of restoration, the bakery was brought back to life and reunited the Southwest Metro with fresh baked pastries, breads and artisan sandwiches.

Chef and owner Andy Mooney opened Red Bench Bakery after over 20 years of experience running kitchens and baking in hotels, restaurants, bakeries and local markets around Minnesota. He further refined his skills at the French Pastry school in Chicago graduating from the renowned L”Art de la Patisserie program in 2007.

Inspired by French technique and Midwestern hospitality, Mooney opened Red Bench Bakery in 2017 to provide the local community with a gathering place and exceptional pastries. We cannot wait for you to visit us soon!

Along with turning out rustic rye sourdough loaves and crusty baguettes, Mooney has a well-practiced touch with buttery, flaky croissants.

The baguette was found to be an exemplary representation of the category, with a deeply browned exterior that gave a satisfyingly groaning crunch when we tore into it.
