The top 10 romantic patios in Toronto
Romantic patios in Toronto are often secluded, picturesque, dark and quiet. These spots exist in alleyways, backyards and gardens, and usually feature twinkly lights or candles to really set the mood on midsummer night dates.
Here are my picks for the most romantic patios in Toronto.
When it comes to patios, this Yorkville spot gives you options. The restaurant offers a 12-seater sidewalk space, but it's the expansive backyard patio that is the star. Patios in Toronto don't get much dreamier than this.
The back garden of this Little Italy spot features a dreamy patio that's lovely during the day and at night. Choose a cocktail or cappuccino because this spot's both a bar and a cafe.
