Great patios in Toronto's Financial District

Patio season is somewhere near the top of every Torontonian’s list of favourite times of year. The Financial District boasts one of the best downtown patio scenes led by these fine locations.

Earls Kitches & Bar

1
150 King St W, Toronto, ON M5H 1J9

The friendly atmosphere and unique menu are the perfect antidotes to a long day at the office, and the patio is always bustling during the warmer months. Originally conceived as a simple beer and burger joint, Earl’s has taken off as a Financial District favourite. That’s thanks to their large selection of international beers and a staff that’s passionately dedicated to good food and great times.

Bymark

66 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON M5K 1K2

Located in Toronto’s bustling TD Centre, Bymark is at the heart of Toronto’s Financial District. The elegant, upscale atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for a drink after a long day at the office. In summer, you can enjoy a cold beer and one of their delightful shared appetizers on the street-level patio. The service here is famously top-tier and the city’s business elite would accept nothing less.

Duke Of Westminster

77 Adelaide W, Toronto, ON M5X 1A3

Tucked away in First Canadian Place, the Duke offers knowledgeable service and the patio is a fun place to stop in for a summer drink. There’s a large selection of beers, including several craft brew options, and the standard pub fare is always tasty and comes in heaping portions. This is a hot spot for business lunches and meetings and ideal for an outing with your boss and co-workers.

The Keg Steakhouse & Bar

165 York St, Toronto, ON M5H 3R8

The Keg draws a diverse crowd of business people from office towers in the surrounding area, as well as young city folk seeking out good food, good company and al fresco drinks. The patio is packed during the summertime and the environment is always fun, busy and a great place to meet people. There are plenty of regulars who come for the expertly-prepared steaks, their extensive wine and drink list and the exciting ambiance.

Duke of Devon

66 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON M5K 1K2

Situated inside the Toronto-Dominion Centre, The Duke of Devon is a major hot spot during patio season. The modern urban design and spacious seating for over 150 draw large and diverse crowds. There’s an extensive menu of beers, red and white wines and champagnes, as well as plenty of gourmet burgers and salads if you’ve got an appetite.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
