Historic Payne Avenue and Arcade Street offer truly unique experiences. If you’re looking for a combination of destination stores, fine dining and convenience merchandise and unique one-of-a-kind shops, you need look no further than Payne Avenue and Arcade Street on St. Paul’s Eastside. Just east of Downtown St. Paul, Payne and Arcade are easily walk-able, and reachable by car or by convenient public transportation.
Here, you’ll find a blend of family businesses in continuous operation for over half a century with young entrepreneurs operating new businesses. Payne Avenue, winner of the 2015 Munch Madness Final Fork competition (produced by the St. Paul Pioneer Press), features award-winning chefs who create delectable meals, utilizing locally-grown products and meat from sustainable and humane sources - where farming practices are better for the environment and produce healthier, better tasting meat.
