I love this pavilion year round but the the summer is liquid gold for this terrace. There is rental for paddle boats and community bands often play here and music will lilt across the water with big brass sounds. Its a quick walk about 20 minutes around the lake and is perfect for active preschoolers.

Fancy comfort food. Lots of variety, lots of choices. Nice vibrant atmosphere. A few French entrees and deserts for extra variety. Good selection of specialty beers.

This Pavilion and the lake are about 10 minutes away from the downtown St Paul. When I got there it was a very cold day but it was so beautiful and sunny that we couldn't refuse to have walk around a lake (which took us about 30 minutes). I wish it was not frozen (or frozen enough so we could... More

One of St. Paul's most awesome places to visit. The building itself overlooks Como Lake. Located in a very safe picturesque area. Observe walkers, joggers, dog walkers etc. all the while you're sipping your favorite beverage, and eating something delicious from the restaurant. During the summer months, concerts of all sorts are played for the visitor's pleasure. Sits above Lake... More

Grand facility located on Como Lake. Very popular park especially in the summer. Easy parking and close to other attractions in the area.

We stumbled on this gem just driving around and sightseeing last time we were in St Paul getting ready to drop our son of to college. It was fabulous! On a sunny warm day in August we discovered that there is a restaurant that will serve you overlooking the lake and we had Espresso and Beignets (last time I had... More

Lake Come is amazing - such a wonderful gem for the City of St. Paul. After a nice walk to stop in and get some beignets. $6.00 for 6, nice coffee, friendly staff. A great morning. The also offer fruit- cup or bowl- stick with the sugary items they are worth it. Enjoy the Lake and experience.

Prices were not bad and the food was pretty good. Large portions for not large price. Food is made to order so your food is not just sitting around under a heater.

Visited the pavilion for a lesiurely lunch. There should be something for everyone on the menu. The setting is quite beautiful overlooking the lake which offers paddleboat and kayak rentals. Parking on a Saturday afternoon to visit the pavilion was easy. Parking anywhere else in the park was impossible, so we will have to return to see more. Recommended

Good place t stop for a bieer and snack (we split the hot dog on one visit and the beginets and coffe on another trip). The setting is very nice, but feels a little formal, maybe? It's nothing like other park pavillion restaurants (Tin Fish and Sea Salt). A small quibble for a HUGE upgrade over what was there before... More
