This weekend marks a momentous occasion here in Toronto. As of Friday, outdoor dining will finally be allowed to resume after months of closures (except for that one random weekend in the spring that we don’t talk about). Tons of places are already accepting reservations, and if you haven’t jumped on it yet, now’s your chance to. From awesome happy hours, to specials, to just straight up cool places, these are 10 of the best patios to hit in Toronto this weekend.

**Editor’s Note: As per Ontario COVID-19 regulations, only 4 people are permitted at each table at a time. Please avoid crowding and stay up to date on guidelines to ensure as safe a patio experience as possible.

Clockwork Terrace is also a great patio choice to hit. The picture-perfect spot will make all your Insta-followers jealous, with its amazing floral wall, lush greenery, and crystal chandeliers. If the aesthetics alone don’t pull you in, wait till you hear about their killer menu. This weekend you can enjoy one of their new cocktails like the Pina Colada or Front Street Smash. Or stick with a fan favourite like the Meet Me At The Clock or Watermelon Sugar. Or have one of each, we don’t judge. They’ve also got great brunch offerings up for grabs!

Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Head on over to happy hour at Cactus Club Cafe. This Toronto spot is wildly popular and we’d recommend just about anything on the menu. But if we had to choose, we’d say you can’t go wrong with a glass of their refreshing Frosé. No other drink celebrates summer quite like it.
