The Buttered Tin, which has become one of St. Paul's favorite breakfast spots since opening in Lowertown in 2013, is planning to open a new location in Minneapolis.

The restaurant and bakery owned by Alicia Hinze has announced Tuesday that it will open in late July in the Gateway Northeast Building at 2445 Northeast Marshall St., opposite Betty Danger's Animal Farm (more on that here).

In a press release, Hinze said the similarities between Lowertown and Northeast Minneapolis – both home to "large, vibrant artist communities" – were a factor in the site selection.

"We consider The Buttered Tin to be a place where culinary artists bring wholesome farm-to-table food to the mid-rise neighborhood," Hinze said. "Like our building in Lowertown, our new corner location is surrounded by glass, bright light, and friendly faces.

"We hope to become a welcoming staple where the Northeast community can gather around wholesome food, relax, have a drink with friends and family, and share celebrations," she added.

The second restaurant had been in the planning stages last year, but was delayed when COVID-19 hit.

With the state having seen an improvement in COVID-19 rates and the introduction of vaccines, the plans were resurrected and finalized earlier this year, and comes as businesses like restaurants and bars will be able to operate restriction-free from May 28.

"We still believe the human community will never stop gathering and celebrating around food. We want to be a part of that welcoming spirit of community throughout the Twin Cities,” said Hinze, who is a former winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars.
