Bar Meets Bakery Makes Pretty

Here’s your first look inside Augustine’s

Hey! You got your baked goods in my bar.

It’s an idea whose time has come: an all day gathering spot that combines the carbo-loaded powers of both a neighborhood bakery and a corner bar. Augustine’s Bar & Bakery is the beauteous work of the same team that operates Cathedral Hill’s beloved beer-forward restaurant The Happy Gnome.

The impressive tap lineup.

The room is an ideal all day hangout with space to grab a pastry and run first thing in the morning.

Every day, all day needs in one locaiton.

The fresh-baked selection runs the gamut from croissants and muffins to fresh-baked breads and cookies.

Buttery.

Everyday, the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner with a brunch menu popping up on the weekends.

The cozy, bright dining room.

The restaurant seats 70 and is located on a corner that was most recently a laundromat. It’s on Selby Avenue in St. Paul, just a stone’s throw from the wildly popular original location of the Blue Door Pub.

Hippos are super hip.

The full bar, restaurant and bakery is named in honor of Saint Augustine of Hippo - which explains the hippo that stands stoutly proud as the official mascot.

Plenty of windows makes for an inviting room.

Open seven days a week, Augustine’s lunch through dinner Monday through Friday and brunch through dinner on Saturday and Sunday.
