Here are covered patios in toronto to check out.

Escape Goat

Take a look at the forever rotating craft beer list and sip on a great beverage. Here you can enjoy yummy pub grub like tilapia fish tacos, fried chicken sandwiches, and more that are made from fresh and local ingredients. Sounds like a perfect day to me.

Paradise Grapevine

Browse an awesome beer, cider, and wine list as you nibble on some delicious snacks. A partially covered patio layered in vines and plants offers a fresh and bright vibe, while still being super cozy. If the weather clears up then you have the option of sitting on the side where the patio is totally open. It’s all about the options.

Cactus Club Cafe

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, this hotspot has a beautiful rooftop deck that has a removable covering, so you can still choose to eat on the rooftop anytime. That means you can even enjoy this patio in the winter! There’s awesome food with a lot of vegetarian options, plus tons of great people watching.
