I don't know about you but I love breakfast. Let's be honest...breakfast food is the best. Pancakes, eggs, hash browns...the list goes. Well, this might interest you if you love breakfast as well. St. Paul's oldest fire station is being converted into a very trendy breakfast bar called, Hope Breakfast Bar. The bar itself will be serving breakfast all day and will be located over the spot connected to a new Marriott hotel and near United and Children’s hospitals. According to restaurateur Brian Ingram, “I thought it would make a great coffee and breakfast place, and I’ve always wanted to do something like this. I grew up with a coffee background. My family owned a coffee shop." Ingram continued, " For us, we always say start your day with optimism. And with Children’s Hospital across the street, it kind of tied into what we do."
According to the Pioneer Press, The spot will be open from early morning to late at night, will have a mix of savory and sweet breakfast items. Pancakes will be made with cake batter with such varieties as carrot cake and red velvet. Creme brulee French toast, pork belly shrimp and grits, and beef ribs as well as a full coffee and cocktail program are also part of the lineup. The space will have 90 seats and a patio. The Marriott hotel will offer additional seating for diners as well.
As of right now, there's no clear date on when it will open but they hope to open in September.
