There’s a vegan movement sweeping the Twin Cities now heralded by the arrival of vegan croissants at Eureka Compass Vegan Food opening soon in St. Paul. First, we had the nation’s first vegan butcher in Northeast, then the flood of excitement for a small restaurant in St. Paul and now a pop up is planting roots at 629 Aldine Street in the Midway neighborhood.
The business is the work of Colin Anderson who began with pop ups selling his vegan croissants and tamales. His plan had been to slowly work up to an actual restaurant space, when the opportunity presented itself to takeover the former Eden Pizza. The plan is to sell pastries in the morning, a lunch menu midday and then open for the occasional ticketed dinner.
Hours will unfold as Anderson gets settled into the space, but for now, the ovens are turning on for Memorial Day weekend. Stop by for several varieties of the animal-product-free croissants next Friday May 26 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday May 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
