PLEASE NOTE: As of April 1st, all co-op member discounts at local businesses participating in our Community Partner Program are temporarily suspended through August 31, 2020. We apologize for the inconvenience but ask for your understanding as we do our part to lift up our treasured local partners during this challenging time.
Small, local businesses are at the heart of our thriving independent food, drink, and retail scene in the Twin Cities. Due to COVID-19 and Governor Walz’s stay-at-home order intended to slow its spread, many of these locally-owned businesses have been forced to temporarily close or significantly alter the way they operate. Many have had to find creative ways to continue providing you with products and services in order to remain viable in the face of great economic hardships.
Small business owners need our on-going support to survive in the midst of the pandemic. Join us in solidarity and show your love for our small, local Saint Paul business partners by using their new pick-up, take-out, delivery, and virtual offerings. Thank you for your continued commitment to eating, drinking, and shopping local during these uncertain times.
All updates below are subject to change. Please visit each community partner’s respective websites for the most up-to-date information.
The restaurant is open for take-out and delivery Wednesday-Sunday from 11am-8pm. Visit their website for the limited take-out menu and online order form.
