The best things about summer in Toronto? Patios, Blue Jays games, patios, park weekends, and did we mention patios?
Since the season is almost over, it’s time to get in those last few rays of afternoon sunshine so you have something to dream about come fall. Our Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood is a great place to do that…while you still can.
Patios at Yonge and Eglinton
Granite Brewery & Restaurant
The first thing you’ll notice about this neighbourhood fav is its front patio. But the real insiders know to grab a table on the uber-lush, private backyard patio. Sample flights of craft beer or sip cocktails while you catch up at this hidden gem. And if you accidentally indulge too much, the Drunken Macaroni & Cheese will do you right!
La Vecchia Ristorante
This is your next go-to spot for romantic date nights. The menu is full of fine, authentic Italian dishes that taste just like Nona used to make. Besides flavourful pastas and seafood dishes, it also has an ambience that is raved about on Yelp almost as much as its food is. Take your special somebody (and all the credit) for a surprise date night. It may just be your best idea yet.
Boom Breakfast & Co.
Fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies, pancakes, brunch burgers and everything in between. Anything you choose is especially easy to love on a cute patio like this. And for those who may have spent a little too long on another patio last night, go for some hair of the dog with house cocktails like their Unstable Caesar with gin.
Sip Wine Bar
Specializing in Neopolitan pizzas, this is an ideal place for sharing. Boasting a stellar wine list, it’s a great place to start the evening with friends. Plan to end up ordering the raved-about spicy Diavola pizza before you call the night quits.
Enjoy the sun, the stars and the Yonge and Eglinton scenery.
