After a successful Kickstarter campaign, bakery and café The Buttered Tin opened this morning in St. Paul. Co-owned by marketing pro Jen Lueck and pastry chef Alicia Hinze (the former catering manager for Cupcake and also a winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars), the spot is open for breakfast, lunch, and coffee, seven days a week. Also on the team are Anna Berzelius (from the Salty Tart) and Jason Schellin (from Muffuletta and Smack Shack). According to Stephanie March at Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, the menu will include items like huevos rancheros benedict and Easter Dinner sandwich (scalloped potatoes and smoked ham with dijon on ciabatta), as well as a daily breakfast hot dish and a potted cheese of the day. Plus, pastries and desserts, of course, and wine and beer.
