Phone: (651) 789-8870
Status: Certified open
Uptown cafe and bakery French Meadow's second (non-airport, non-state-fair) location is now officially open on Grand Ave. in St. Paul. The menu is the same as the Minneapolis location, focusing on organic ingredients in dishes like crab cake benedict (two organic Schultz poached eggs, black bean crab cakes, sautéed organic spinach, and hollandaise sauce) and the grilled Rachel (with Wild Acres smoked turkey, Swiss, firecracker slaw, sauerkraut, and tomato-caper aioli on organic sourdough rye). Now the question is: when will they start selling the doughsant (their State Fair take on a doughnut-croissant mashup)?
The St. Paul French Meadow is open from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6:30 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. Happy hour runs from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
