Harry's Cafe | Project Completion

Last year, Harry Brand, owner of Harry’s Café in Lakeville, MN engaged Wilkus Architects to renovate his restaurant in commemoration of the business’s 20-year milestone.  We're proud to announce that construction has been completed and the restaurant has officially re-opened!

Construction started at Harry’s in Lakeville, MN on April 24 and re-opened on May 14 Mother’s Day!  We can’t wait for you to see the new spaces and enjoy the refreshed restaurant while still recognizing the original character. 

Special thanks to Loeffler Construction for the great partnership on this project!


When it was time to update & remodel I wanted to “stay local”. As we are a part of the community we looked for other local professionals to partner with. Luckily, here in Minnesota, we have many quality small businesses to choose from.

Knowing my design limitations, I needed to start by finding an architectural firm who understands the unique nature & demands of a restaurant. Wilkus Architects specializes in designing hundreds of restaurants across the country every year. How fortunate to have such a great resource right here in Minnesota!

Loeffler Construction is a Lakeville-based national construction & consulting firm with incredible talent & customer’s reviews. Not only are they among the best construction firms in the nation, they are great customers of the restaurant as well!

Helm Electric was the original electric contractor when I built Harry’s over 19 years ago. Not only did they do a great job then, they have taken care of all our power needs every day since! Helm is truly a great local family business who actively looks for to both find ways to save money as well as improve the end result. Truly a five-star business!

I consider myself extremely lucky to have so many highly-qualified professionals working together to bring Harry’s.

Not many people can say that they turned their passions into a career but becoming a licensed Architect has done exactly that for me. On a daily basis I get the pleasure of bringing great design ideas to my clients to help them grow their business. Architecture has always been a part of my life and I am so appreciative that the next step of this journey is complete.

Architecture has the potential to elevate the human experience in every aspect of our lives. That potential is what drove me to become an Architect. The journey wasn’t easy, but obtaining my license will allow me to explore these potentials professionally and make a positive impact on our built environment. I truly enjoy the work I do every day and look forward to the next chapter.

Growing up I had a parent who supported my creative design strength and pushed me to follow my passion. Architecture was that passion. It was a long process; it took many years of education, exams, and practice. Becoming a Licensed Architect is just another step in the process, as I will always be learning and creating something new every day.
