*****THIS EVENT IS WEATHER DEPENDENT. There is no indoor seating so if the afternoon is going to be stormy I will reschedule this and e-mail anyone who RSVP'd. Please keep an eye on this event page for updates, thanks!

Hope the snow is gone so we can get out on a patio on the beach!!! One of our favorites in the city!

Winner of The Star Tribune 2014 Best Lakeside Dining Award, Sandcastle is a well kept secret on the shores of Lake Nokomis. Located on the "big beach" Sandcastle features a surprising menu of local, fresh & inventive food, craft beer, wine, kombucha, killer iced tea and more.

The remodeled patio has loads of seating, much of it is in the shade so even on a warmer day it's pleasant IMO.

Sandcastle takes cash & credit/debit cards. No cash machine on site.

Directions / Map:
We are located on the big beach at Lake Nokomis. The nearest streets to us are Cedar Ave South and East Minnehaha Parkway. We are also very close to where Cedar turns into Hwy 77 and there is access to Hwy 62 here as well. From both Cedar and Minnehaha Parkway you can enter onto Lake Nokomis Parkway to drive around the lake and find us. We are on the west side of the lake.

There is free parking along Lake Nokomis Parkway. There is also a large pay lot at the beach.

RSVP's: Please be cool. Change your RSVP if you can't make it - more than 2 hours in advance is really helpful for those organizing the event. I take the time to greet everyone so come by and say hello. 3 no-shows and we will go ahead and take you off the group list. If you'd like to re-join when you are able to make events, just message me.
