It’s not over till it’s over! Toronto residents are rejoicing as they continue to bask in September sun. No need to double check calendars though, while hard to believe, this is indeed the real deal. It’s late in September and we’re sleeveless in 27-degree heat. Throw on your shades and enjoy it while it lasts with these patio hot spots in the XO neighborhood…

Tennessee Tavern
1154 Queen Street W.


This outdoor hideaway is far from the usual. With brightly lit neon signs surrounding a vintage birdcage, this is an awesome spot to have a cold one. Make sure you also check out the menu, filled with unique European eats.

8 Pardee Avenue


Bring the family along for a tasty outing at this great bakery. Famous for their ‘Spreads on Bread’, Brodflour will not disappoint. Their cozy patio looks like the ultimate spot for a fresh Sourdough Rye Brownie.

Local Liberty Village
171 E Liberty Street


An infamous neighborhood hangout featuring rotating taps of craft beer, Local is THE place to hang out with friends and enjoy the rest of the Toronto heat while it’s here!

So, get on out there and take advantage everyone! Get your dose of Vitamin D in while you can. Before we know it, we’ll be taking out our parkas and mitts…
