ST. CLOUD – A new restaurant is opening on Monday in downtown St. Cloud.  Central Perk can be found at 912 West St. Germain Street, in the Regency Building, across from the Paramount Theatre.

The business is owned by two couples; Randi and Nick Tapio and Odessa and Alan Scherr.

Randi Tapio says Central Perk will be a coffee shop by day, then transition to a wine bar by night.  Tapio says it’s really two businesses in one.
