New Restaurant Opening in South Lakeside

Posted on December 10, 2018

As one of the first deliverables of the Master Plan, Lakeside is excited to partner with Gabe Zeller and Julie Mesenburg, creators of Barra, a Sandusky-based, modern Mexican restaurant, to offer a diverse new dining option in Lakeside.


Gabe and Julie will open "Lago Coastal Café" in the existing grounds building on Sixth Street, across from the Williams Tennis Campus. Approved at the November board meeting, renovation will begin this month thanks to a donation from a generous Lakeside family.

The restaurant will feature a walk-up window for carryout service, an indoor café dining experience and shaded outdoor seating.

For more information on their story and a glance at the type of food offered, check out the Lago Coastal Café Facebook page and website, which will go live soon.
