French Meadow Bakery and Cafe will open a new location on Grand Avenue in St. Paul next spring, the Pioneer Press reports.

The space at 1662-66 Grand Avenue which previously housed Coat of Many Colors and Coffee News Cafe will undergo renovations beginning next month. The cafe will occupy the entire first floor that's owned by Macalester College and is expected to open in May 2013.

French Meadow's flagship cafe is located on Lyndale Avenue in south Minneapolis.

City Pages says French Meadow has been expanding its business in all directions, from the announcement of a larger patio to a frozen food line.

The bakery is the first to be certified organic in the country, City Pages claims, and was offering gluten-free items before it became trendy.
