If you happen to catch a warm summer day in Toronto, you may find yourself wanting to head out onto a patio. The good news is that Toronto has plenty to choose from, but this can often make your decision a little bit difficult. Here are some of the top patio restaurants that you should consider on a nice day in Toronto:

The Amsterdam Brewhouse and Restaurant:

For a more casual vibe down by the waterfront, the brewhouse and restaurant has excellent beer straight from the brewery as well as menu inspired items that are all made from elements of the brewing process. The view of Lake Ontario as well as the open kitchen and beer store make this one of the perfect places to spend an afternoon.
