Duluth’s Best Bread opening breakfast cafe at Endion Station

Robert Lilligard’s research trip to France.

Duluth’s Best Bread will open a European style bakery-cafe on July 7 at Endion Station Public House in Canal Park. The cafe will operate from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Fridays through Sundays, before Endion Station’s typical business hours.

Duluth’s Best Bread at Endion Station will serve sweet pastries including French-style croissants, monster cinnamon and caramel pecan rolls, and homemade Pop Tarts. It will also serve new savory items, including a classic quiche with bacon and ham.

Beverages will include espresso drinks like cappuccinos and mochas from Duluth Coffee Company coffee, Fitger’s Brewhouse beer, cider and cocktails, and smoothies. Customers will also be able to buy Duluth Best Bread’s crusty sourdough and cranberry wild rice breads.

“Europe has an amazing cafe culture where you can just sit with coffee and a pastry and watch the world go by,” Duluth’s Best Bread co-founder Robert Lillegard said in a news release. “This will be like Europe, except there’s no smoking and you don’t have to pay to use the bathrooms.”

Fitness buffs will be able to take advantage of “yoga on the deck” from 7 to 7:50 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays throughout July and August. Participants will get a special breakfast discount.

After 11 a.m., Endion Station opens for lunch, dinner, music, and drinks.

Duluth Best Bread was founded in September 2015 when brothers Michael and Robert Lillegard opened their limited-hours bakery in Duluth’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Readers of Perfect Duluth Day named it Duluth’s Perfect Bakery in 2016.

Endion Station Public House opened at 200 Lake Place Drive in summer 2014. The pub and cider house is owned by Just Take Action, which also owns Fitger’s Brewhouse and other Duluth establishments.
