Tea House St. Paul/Maplewood closed due to fire

Went with a friend to this location and was greeted by a gentleman in appropriate garb asking if we were planning to go to Tea House and then informing us that they were closed due to a fire (insulation fire, is what I think he said). They might be open tomorrow, he said. Maybe. There were no obvious signs of smoke or fire at the front of the house. Just an FYI in case this was on anyone's list today.

      Oh no! Thanks for posting this information. If anyone goes when they are open, please let everyone know.

        spahkee, as eastsidegirl pointed out, they were there on Friday (two days after the fire) and TH was open. So it looks like the guy who met us at the restaurant was correct. They're back in business.

          I read this in real time and Eastsidegirl appeared to be referring to the Friday BEFORE the fire. Just do the prudent thing and call beforehand.
