Mpls. St.Paul Magazine has a list of the best summer patios in Minneapolis, St. Paul and beyond.

Based on both the view, the food and of course, the cocktails, the list of the best spots to sit this summer include:

LynLake Brewery, Minneapolis -- It's all about rooftops this summer. You can even catch a yoga class in the mornings.

It's Greek To Me, Minneapolis -- Learn about Greek wine, while sipping it on this lush patio that surrounds a peaceful fountain.

6Smith, Wayzata -- Under the sun, next to the sparkling water, what more could you ask for? Head up to the second level to get a view of the entire bay.

Surly, Minneapolis

Union, Minneapolis

W.A. Frost, St. Paul

The Green Room, Stillwater

Ngon Bistro, Frogtown, St. Paul

Lake Elmo Inn
