The café and bakery are now open for business thanks to crowdfunding

A new bakery and café has opened in St. Paul thanks to the restaurant’s Kickstarter campaign. The Pioneer Press reports that The Buttered Tin has raised the $10,000 dollars needed to open and is now ready for business.

The corner café and bakery serve twists on American breakfast classics, like their buttermilk pancakes with maple bacon butter and real maple syrup. The business describes themselves as “warm and welcoming” and serving “comforting farm foods.”

The head chef is Jason Schellin, formerly of Smack Shack and Muffuletta. Pastry chef Alicia Hinze, formerly of Cupcake, creates the bakery’s pastries.

The business used Kickstarter to spread the word on their hopes to open by mid-June. Their goal was $10,000, and they successfully raised $10, 801 thanks to 142 ‘backers.’ The website allows the groups to not only spread the word about their project and funding goal, but also explain what their idea would bring to the area if funded.
