While the weather may be cooling down, a Minneapolis cooperative is reigniting its cafe with a new menu and redesigned interior.
The Seward Co-op Creamery Café, located at 2601 E. Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis, is ready to open its doors yet again on September 12, but with a fresh face. While the building was originally built in 1920 as a dairy production plant, the cafe opened in 2015 as the Seward Co-op’s first retail restaurant. However, the cafe temporarily closed its doors and began renovations on July 5. After listening to feedback from the community and staff, the co-op used the insights as a guide for a brand new vision.
And now, the cafe will feature a new and improved format: a redesigned interior with warmer colors, an upgraded all-day menu with ice cream and additional specials at night, and recent hires to the team. The restaurant added a new executive chef, Katie Nielson, and front of house manager, Tim Johnson, to lead the business toward bringing fresh and flavorful food and service to the community.
According to the Seward Co-op Creamery Café’s blog, it was key of the business to have a “simple menu with familiar foods, at a fair price, using sustainably sourced ingredients, in a dining environment that is warm and conducive to conversation.”
Seward Co-op Creamery Café will be open Sunday–Tuesday from 8am–3pm, and Wednesday–Saturday from 8am–9pm.
