Old time building. Contemporary take on fish & meat classics & small plates dining. Way out of the way for us, but we enjoyed the adventure of exploring the East Side of St. Paul and eventually finding a cool historic building with a very serious restaurant and bar with no exotic dancers inside. We did Brunch and were able to find satisfying reasonably priced meals like Farmer's Market scramble ($8), Irish Breakfast ($12-bacon, sausages, white beans in tomato sauce (like Heinz beans probably!), multigrain toast, two eggs), and Logger's Tower ($10-triple stack of pancakes, grilled ham, fried eggs, scallions and rosemary). It can get pricey at dinner, although they do have less expensive choices like burgers for around $12. The Brunch has quite a few moderately priced choices. We ended up being the only customers in the early Sunday afternoon. The friendly very informative waiter and the big windows, wrought iron, high tin ceiling, second floor dining area, dim lighting and wood floor atmosphere of this old time St Paul building added a lot to the whole experience.
