About Our Excelsior Market

Kowalski's Excelsior Market is located in the previous home of Mason Motors on the corner of Water and Oak streets, just blocks from Lake Minnetonka's Excelsior Bay. With just 18,000 square feet of retail space, it's smaller than the typical Kowalski's store, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in myriad ways. The popular Excelsior store offers all the hallmarks of a Kowalski's, including a Wine & Spirits shop, Starbucks, fresh sushi, and indoor and outdoor seating. When it opened, it was also the one and only Kowalski's to feature a bakery service counter and to provide exclusively full-service meats.

Excelsior is a strong, vibrant, caring community located only 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. Besides Kowalski's, the small downtown boasts a number of antique and specialty shops and restaurants, giving this very special community a unique feel of old-meets-new.

With a population of just about 2,400, Excelsior explodes with activity in the summer. Bicyclists, boaters, swimmers and picnickers are among the thousands of visitors to Excelsior each year, many of whom come for the city's famed Art in the Park, Fourth of July festivities and Apple Days.
