Since 2000, Minneapolis has been home base for our journey from coffee-slinging art gallery to full-fledged roasting operation. As our coffee program has grown, we’ve been lucky enough to have our coffee served in hotels, restaurants, and cafes, in cities ranging from Seattle, WA to Austin, TX. While Minneapolis will always have our heart, we are super excited about extending ourselves more fully into the Twin Cities with a new St. Paul location.
Located in the former space of our longtime friends, Timelines Antiques, we anticipate cafe no. 5 will have a playful, unique character, while maintaining the sensibility that has driven all of our cafe designs. The building has a lot of history, including a neighborhood grocery store operating in the space for many years. We hope to carry on this rich service tradition. With so many schools and residential homes in the surrounding area, we aim to be a reliable hub for students and people of all walks of life, and very much look forward to meeting our new neighbors and serving the surrounding communities.
The early stages of construction are underway now, with a planned kick-off party + opening date coming later this year. Keep an eye on future newsletters for progress reports as we work to build out this new space!
