One of my favorite things to do when it's nice out in the spring, summer, and fall is go out to eat outdoors. Sitting out on a restaurant's patio in the nice Minnesota weather is the best! It's even better on a rooftop.

We have plenty of places to dine outside in and around Rochester, but only a few options for rooftop dining. The only two I can think of are CRAVE and Kathy's Pub. If there are other places that I'm not thinking of, send me a message on our app!

So if you decide you want to splurge a little for a date night or a day trip with the family, you may find yourself up in the Twin Cities area. And if you're hoping for a cool outdoor dining experience then I've got the list for you. There are quite a few rooftop bars/dining areas in the metro but I tried to compile a list of the best ones. Check them out and if you go to any of them let me know how they are!
