Making for the perfect dinner date destination, this patio sets the mood with string lights and floral accents. Opt for some expertly made spaghetti and you've got all the makings for a Lady and the Tramp moment.

Black Hoof
Black Hoof's backyard patio is the perfect indoor-outdoor hybrid. The fully enclosed space features a heavy dose of wood and just enough greenery peaking through to remind you that you're outdoors.

Head to the patio at Susur Lee's Bent to enjoy everything from lobster tacos to braised short ribs. The eclectic menu mimics the outdoor decor. It sports mismatched chairs and a fresh colour palette, perfect for a hot summer day.

Old School
If you're looking for a sun-drenched spot to enjoy some American fare, look no further than the patio at Old School. With very little shade and a menu filled with diner classics, opt for this when you're craving a stack of pancakes and need a bit of vitamin D.

Northern Belle
Looking out onto Dundas West, Northern Belle offers a first-class people watching patio. Drenched with sun and only a small walk from Trinity Bellwoods, this is the perfect place to grab a post-park coffee or cocktail.

Cocktail Bar
The modest-sized patio at Cocktail bar boasts an air of exclusivity. With enough seating for 15, you'll need expert timing to snag a spot. For those that do, you'll find a menu filled with top notch cocktails.

This sidewalk spot has a refined but relaxed vibe. The sleek, no-frills outdoor seating area has little by way of decor, allowing the food from Luther's Chicken, beer and cocktails to take centre stage.

The laid back patio at Wallflower features picnic table seating, touches of greenery and string lights for ambiance. Expect to find a jovial crowd sipping on budget-friendly pints and sharing an array of upscale bar snacks, like oyster a la king.

The sidewalk patio at Loveless is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy an expertly-made cocktail or coffee when the sun is shining. Featuring picnic table seating and a relaxed vibe, this low-key spot it where to go on Dundas when the weather is nice.

Midfield Wine Bar & Tavern
For wine on a patio try Midfield. Their laid back sidewalk patio is the perfect place to share a charcuterie board or indulge in lemon shortcake with chantilly cream. They also boast the best wine list in the area.
