Bar Reyna

158 Cumberland St, Toronto, ON M5R 1A8

Bar Renya’s backyard-style patio is open all-year-round! There’s plenty of seating, and it’s heated for those cooler summer nights. The patio is adorned with fairy lights, potted plants and cozy benches!

Rorschach Brewing Co.

1001 Eastern Ave, Toronto, ON M4L 1A8

When Rorschach Brewing Co. opened its doors earlier this year the team promised an epic patio, and they delivered! Seating 100 people, the patio is outfitted with fire pits, lush greenery and of course draught lines!

Union Chicken

25 The West Mall, Etobicoke, ON M9C 1B8

Located in Sherway Gardens, Union Chicken serves up some tasty roast chicken! The patio is accessible through a garage door that rolls up to reveal a welcoming space. While the view may not be that great, (the patio is beside a parking lot), you won’t notice because you’ll be too busy taking photos of your delicious meal!

DOMA Restaurant

50 Clinton St, Toronto, ON M6G 2Y3

French-inspired Korean spot Doma open last fall to rave reviews. The unique cuisine and minimalist dining room are just part of its charm. The front-patio, which seats 38, is an extension to the already unique space.

Awai Restaurant

2277 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6S 1P1

Plant-based restaurants were popping up all over Toronto in the last half of 2016, so it was no surprise when Awai opened in this winter! The vegan friendly-cuisine is amplified when enjoyed on the backyard-style patio, that also serves as Chef Nathan Isberg’s greenhouse!


485 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1K4

Baro’s all-season patio is the place to be this summer! Headed by Chef Steven Gonzalez, there is no better way to enjoy his refined menu of South American cuisine than outdoors on the patio.

Bar Begonia

252 Dupont St, Toronto, ON M5R 1V7

Bar Begonia’s front patio complete with a retractable roof is bright and airy, covered with white canopies that will surely protect you from that blazing sun!

Bar Cru

20 Market St, Toronto, ON M5E 1M6

Get ready for some aburi sushi, ceviche and poke bowls! The patio is on the smaller side, but it’s great for people watching!


26 Baldwin St Main, Toronto, ON M5T 1L2

Still in the soft-opening stages, Momo San is a sushi spot in the heart of Baldwin Village. The patio wraps around the modern dining space and is surrounded by pine wood, giving the illusion of a secluded patio, even though its right on the sidewalk!

Arvo Coffee

17 Gristmill Lane, Toronto, ON M5A 3C4

The little coffee shop that could! Arvo, located in Distillery Historic District, is a small café and occasional flower shop that has a small, but purposeful front patio. People watch with your brew in hand from your perch on the bistro-style tables on Gristmill Lane.
