A few weeks ago, I wrote a review of Sugar Hill Brewing Company, Inc. For some “then vs. now” contrast, I included a photo of a long-gone St. Paul “beer joint,” purposely omitting the name of the business. A number of people responded with various guesses as to its identity – something that is always fun to do.
The pictures of the OK Cafe shown here date from the summer of 1971. The place was neat as a pin and I’m 100% sure the hamburgers and hot dogs made in that tiny kitchen were great.
Today, the service department of Mogan McClure Ford is located where the OK Cafe once stood.
NOTE: A follow-up to this article will be featured soon. It will connect the story of the OK Cafe to the larger history of the Western Front. Watch for it.
