The top 5 patios on King East

The top patios on King East range from laid back spots to upscale eateries. Whether you're looking for a jeans and t-shirt appropriate destination to grab a pint or something a little classier, this neighbourhood has you covered.

Here are my picks for the top patios on King East.

Betty's
The back patio at Betty's is definitely one of the more casual and popular options on King East. It has inexpensive pub grub and pints, ample seating for larger groups and no fuss, no muss decor.

origin king east

Origin
The expansive sidewalk patio at Origin caters more to the suit and tie crowd. With a contemporary design, high-class menu and plush outdoor furniture, this place has really pulled out all the stops.

pacific junction hotel

Pacific Junction Hotel
The secluded backyard space at Pacific Junction Hotel is the polar opposite of Origin's. The laid back spot features mismatched furniture and kitschy decor items like plastic flamingos and skis. If you want cheap pitchers and a relaxed vibe, go here.

Beerbistro

Beerbistro
This King East stalwart has one of the best beer selections in Toronto. They stock more than 120 types of bottled craft brews, plus artisan draft taps that span 15 countries. Its sidewalk patio boasts chic metal furniture and is usually shaded from the sun from neighbouring buildings.

Mangia and Bevi

Mangia & Bevi
This Italian joint flaunts a sweet little sidewalk space decked out with flower boxes and hanging lights, making it romantic enough for date night but still casual enough for a dinner outing with friends.
