Soon Could Be an Elevated & Unique Café One Hour from Owatonna
Just this week it was announced that a proposed café in Burnsville is looking to share with those interested in tabletop board gaming, and trading cards with a new Twin Cities spot for people to gather.
I was seeking through some articles on Bring Me The News when I came upon this one. The place is set to be called Fox Den Board Game Café and according to bringmethenews.com, “Apple Valley resident Mitchell Retka and business partner Brandon Read are behind the concept, which is similar to Lodestone Coffee and Games in Minnetonka and Gamezenter in Roseville.”
If you’re wondering when you should stop by or what the menu is like, you may have to wait a bit because right now it is just a plan and concept. It is noted in the article that the plans for Fox Den Board Game Café were “set to go before the Burnsville City Council on Tuesday, with the plans receiving unanimous approval from the city's Planning Commission earlier this month.”
Bring Me The News shares that the menu will consist of coffee, bubble tea, and non-alcoholic bottled drinks, with pizza, waffles, and shareable appetizers. The café's layout features an “assortment of game tables and three semi-private rooms, each designed to accommodate games lasting anywhere from two to eight hours.”
As someone who loves coffee and yummy beverages as well as board games and puzzles I am so ecstatic for this to become a thing. Keep your fingers crossed with me and hope that Fox Den will open soon.
Fox Den is looking at a space located at 12450 River Ridge Ln, which is right near the Grand Slam in Burnsville. I feel this would be a great spot because it’s right next to Grand Slam and it is a bit hidden from the busy road that is Cliff Rd W.
