Linden Hills Dunn Bros. Remodels, Adds Menu Items

Patrons get relief from construction.

According to a post on the Linden Hills Dunn Bros. Facebook page, patrons are finally able to enjoy the fruits of January's construction.

The hammering, drilling, and general racket that filled the shop will now be replaced by the sounds of baking. Fresh salads, sandwiches, and pizzas will be on offer, along with house-made baked goods.

Dunn Bros. locations across the country have been adding similar bakeries since 2011, under the label "Provisions Bakery Cafe." The chain of coffee franchises had launched the project in an effort to help franchisees expand their business, according to a news release from the company.

The project's first test store, next to the former Azia restaurant on Nicollet Ave, earned praise from Star Tribune food writer Rick Nelson when the concept debuted:

What a clever idea: A central commissary provides the doughs and batters, and an on-site convection oven bakes them, fresh, every day. Why put up with another forgettable, plastic-wrapped sandwich when you can enjoy a made-to-order stack of appealing, colorful ingredients layered in between bread that was baked that morning?

Does anyone know what is happening at the old Bayer’s Hardware building in Linden Hills, Minneapolis Minnesota near West 43rd Street and Upton? I see that the building is empty, and it looks like they are stripping the walls, removing all the metal and aluminum from inside and outside the building (even the outside metal signs.) The big for lease sign has been removed from the window. Are they rehabbing the building? Is a new business coming in? Are they stripping the building and demolishing it? Does anyone know what is happening at the old Bayer’s Hardware building in Linden Hills, Minneapolis Minnesota?

Does anyone know what is happening at the old Linden Hills Flower shop (that was there for around 70 years) building in Linden Hills, Minneapolis Minnesota near West 43rd Street and Upton? I see that Linden Hills Florist has moved to a new location, and there is a lot of remodeling going on this month. Rumor has it that the great restaurant Zumbro Café is expanding into this space. This makes sense because Zumbro Café is located right next door and does great business and has an excellent reputation. Does anyone have any information on this?

Does anyone know what is happening at the old Chaiz Hair Salon (I think that was the name) building in Linden Hills, Minneapolis Minnesota near West 43rd Street and Upton? I know they moved out months ago, and now see they are doing a lot of remodeling, so I think a new business is going in soon. Does anyone know what is happening there? Lots of changes in Linden Hills, are there any more changes coming to Linden Hills that people know about?

A little bit of detective work reveals that some changes will be coming to the space in March...stay tuned.

I heard that the Bayer’s Hardware Building is going to be a restaurant. But the building is in such poor shape it will be cheaper to tear the building down and build a new one, rather than remodel it. I heard that it is expensive to remodel and get up to code. I haven’t heard if someone purchased the space or if they are leasing. I also would like to get some solid information on all the changes in Linden Hills.
