What Should Go Here? The Maple Island Hardware Building in Stillwater

Construction crews are working on developing the space for a new business development in the Maple Island Hardware Building in downtown Stillwater. Meanwhile, Stillwater Patch is asking: What should go here?

Construction crews are working on developing the space for a new business development in the Maple Island Hardware Building in downtown Stillwater.

Meanwhile, Stillwater Patch is asking: What should go here?

Frank Fabio, a contractor who lives in Grant, recently bought the building and is hoping to have a gourmet restaurant in the space this spring. Fabio said on Wednesday morning that there has also been interest for office space in the building.

The 3,700 square-foot space will have a parking lot and a patio overlooking the St. Croix River, and eventually, a portion of the Brown’s Creek Trail that will run through Lowell Park.

Fabio said he’s hoping for a restaurant to go into the space. “I’d like to see a place serving gourmet food,” he said, “a place offering food with a lot of flavor.”

The building was the former home to Maple Island Hardware—and prior to that—Maple Island Creamery.

So what do you think should go here? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

Panera's. We need a place to grab a cup of soup and a sandwich. It has bakery. It has coffee. Bikers, boaters and visitors could get food to take with them or eat in a local park.

Have ALWAYS thought that would be a great restaurant spot! Perfect patio! Would be GREAT if the restaurant also served breakfast/brunch on weekends!

I think a brew pub that also features caribou style coffees with a casual but tasty menu...do we need another "fancy"restaurant downtown? Some entertainment on the weekends would be nice too!
