The Downtowner Woodfire Grill was known as the Downtowner Café for 12 years. The original cafe was a small diner – serving only breakfast and lunch. Famous for its Cajun Breakfast and Stuffed French Toast, the Downtowner was (and still is) one of St. Paul’s favorite neighborhood restaurants.

After extensive renovation, the all new Downtowner Woodfire Grill, re-opened its’ doors in August 2001. With an open floor plan, water fountains in the bar and two fire places, the Downtowner offers a charming 21st century atmosphere complimented by an ancient cooking style. The Downtowner Woodfire Grill still serves its fabulous breakfasts and lunches.   A unique and exquisite dinner menu was added that is exceptional as the restaurant renovation itself.

The menu is considered American Bistro with a Persian touch. The kitchen is open to the dining room, so you can watch as your entree is being prepared. The Downtowner specializes in daily fresh seafood specials and fire roasted meats cooked on an oak-burning woodfire grill. Authentic Persian flatbread- prepared fresh daily – is served to all dinner guests. Try a fresh woodfired pizza – you’ll definitely want to come back for more!

A beautiful private dining room is available for special events and business meetings for large groups. The room can accommodate up to 34 people and can be reserved for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The “backroom” also hosts its own special events, such as wine dinners that are open to all.

Dinner is enhanced by live jazz music on Friday and Saturday evenings starting at 8pm. Check our music calendar for a complete music schedule.

The Downtownerboasts a full bar (complete withthree beautiful water fountains) and a large selections of wines. Enjoy half-priced bottles of wine with dinner on Monday & Tuesday nights.
