parking Mill City Museum Minneapolis

We are trying to decide what to do for lunch and a few hours tomorrow in Minneapolis before going to the airport for a 5pm flight. The Mill City Museum sounds interesting with the Stone Arch Bridge next to it. We are not familiar with the area and need suggestions on a good place to park, preferably free parking.
If you have a recommendation for lunch with free parking, that would be helpful also.
Thank you
ML

Wilde Roast Cafe is across the river and a few blocks north of the Mill City Museum. There's metered parking over there. Most places in downtown don't have a free parking lot but there are a lot of surface lots and ramps everywhere.

It's supposed to be 50ish tomorrow, its walkable if you have a coat.

If you wanted a wide variety of restaurants to choose from, you'll find a lot on Nicollet Avenue. The section that runs through downtown is closed to private vehicle traffic but heading south of downtown it opens back up. If there's a specific ethnic food you want you'd probably find it on that street.

Spoonriver and Kindee Thai are very close to Mill City.

Sawatdee is a couple blocks away.

There's a place called Wasabi Fusion nearby but I can't get their website to open up properly so I don't know if they do lunch or not.

Or if you just want basic food there's a Spaghetti Factory close and a couple bars with decent food (Grumpy's and Crooked Pint).

Ok Thank you all. Looks like we will try to get on street parking but I'm not sure if we could just put more money in if we decide to go to eat. I'll check it out tomorrow. Thanks also for the dining suggestions.
