Au Bon Pain is bidding Au Revoir to the Minneapolis skyways, with its two downtown locations closing this week.

Grafe Auction is selling the food service equipment from both Au Bon Pain locations in the Capella Tower at 255 S. 6th St., and at the Baker Center at 733 S. Marquette Ave.

"Au Bon Pain has closed these Minneapolis locations and is selling all the food service equipment to the public regardless of price," the auction listing says.

"Don't miss this clean self-contained refrigeration, restaurant equipment, stainless tables, restaurant seating and more."

They haven't quite closed yet, with the Star Tribune reporting that the last days for both locations is Thursday.

The newspaper also notes that Arby's, Burger King, Taco Bell and McDonald's have exited the Minneapolis skyways in recent years.

The French-inspired eatery, which is owned by Panera Bread, sells a selection of baked goods, sandwiches, soups, breakfast items, and to-go options.

Au Bon Pain previously had a third skyway location, in the City Center building, but this closed in 2015, as The Journal reported at the time.
