Hope Breakfast Bar

"Perfect for brunch with friends or family. Plenty of coffee creations, cocktails and flavorful plates designed to share. I recommend visiting with a group so you can try different dishes (they are like tapas style but bigger portions).
Everything was the end we wanted to try sweets or specialty coffees but couldn't make it...we hope to visit again and try more things!" - Yelp Elite Sarita E

"This is a fun, gorgeous new place to enjoy breakfast in St Paul. The restaurant used to be an old firehouse and brings that classy brick charm to its hip decor." - Yelp Elite Joy D
