124 Ossington Ave

Bellwoods Brewery

Bellwoods Brewery

The Ossington strip is full of delights and Bellwoods Brewery is one of the beloved mainstays in the neighbourhood. The spot is always bustling with people buying bottles from the bottle shop or stopping by for some food and drinks in the restaurant. The patio is also open all year long (they provide toasty heaters during the winter) so it's the perfect place to spend some time on the weekend with friends and family.

2

60 Kensington Ave

Cold Tea

Cold Tea

One of Toronto's worst-kept secret bars also doubles as a fun weekend patio hangout. Cold Tea's patio transforms into a day party on the weekend with live DJs and dancing galore.

3

245 Queens Quay W

Amsterdam Brewhouse

Amsterdam Brewhouse

With three patios under its belt, Amsterdam Brewhouse is a top choice for a good time. You can see some great views of Toronto and the lake, all while trying their many brews on tap. It's also near the Rogers Centre and Scotiabank Arena so it is an ideal pre- and post-game destination.

4

220 King St W

Mascot Brewery

Mascot Brewery

After losing out on their rooftop patio to a new condo development in 2018, Mascot Brewery returned last summer to the delight of Torontonians. Now located in El Caballito's old space on King West, Mascot Brewery has kept the patio space that has always been a great spot for both after work and weekend drinks. Grab some Mascot brews and enjoy the relaxed vibes.

5

1164 Yonge St

The Rosedale Diner

The Rosedale Diner

This spot serving Middle Eastern fare alongside other Canadian dishes has been around for years and remains a local favourite in the Rosedale neighbourhood.

7

841 Bloor St W

Paradise Grapevine

Paradise Grapevine

Paradise Grapevine took over the old Bloorcourt haunt Menalon (they kept the old sign) but has quickly become a favourite in the neighbourhood with it's whimsical grapevine studded patio. They serve an extensive wine and beer selection and also have shared small plates available for nibbling.

8

2125 Dundas St W

Bandit Brewery

Bandit Brewery

A former auto-shop turned brewery, this craft taproom and patio is Roncesvalles' go-to destination for patio beers. With trees adorned in twinkly lights, picnic benches and lush greenery -- the patio transports patrons to the sprawling beer gardens of Berlin.

18 Tank House Lane

El Catrin

El Catrin

Located in Toronto's historic Distillery District, El Catrin has a great patio that is also open all year. Grab some delicious Mexican food and some cervezas and you're all set for a great patio session!
