Summer is here and we could not be more ready. Our team, along with most Minnesotans, patiently await this time of year for many reasons: one being all of the beautiful local patios.

We wanted to take a moment to express our enthusiasm for patio season by sharing 5 of our team’s favorite local outdoor oases!

W.A. Frost & Co.

Picked by Mollie Windmiller
Creative Director, Owner

“W.A. Frost’s patio makes me feel like I am dining in a secret garden and far away from home. The food and drinks never disappoint!”

“The vibe always makes me feel like I’m on vacation. The cocktails are 5-stars…who doesn’t love a miniature rubber ducky in their drink? And, the food! Can’t stop thinking about the tapas and the churros…”

“It’s a short walk from my house and Quincy Street has the best energy and vibes. The margaritas are my favorite and I love splitting a pitcher with friends on a hot summer evening.”

St. Paul Brewing

Picked by Zoe Vossen
Editorial Manager

I may be biased because I am getting married on this very patio next year, but it is by far my favorite place to enjoy a beer outdoors. You are surrounded by the brick ruins from the old Hamm’s Brewery, art installations, and plants galore. Don’t even get me started on their wood-fired pizza!

Aster Cafe

Web Designer

“My favorite patio is aster cafe! Such a Minneapolis classic. Great drinks, awesome service and the view of the city is one of the best in town. Also, plenty of seating space!”
