Ten Toronto patios reopening this week by neighbourhood

Patio season starts now at these restaurants

After over three months of dine-in service closure, Toronto restaurants are taking the first steps toward reopening this week. Premier Ford announced on Monday that restaurants can begin serving customers on patios starting today.

While many restaurants are taking a few more days or weeks to gear up (and adjust their spaces to comply with the new COVID-conscious guidelines outlined by the city), these ten restaurants are ready to go and welcoming diners back today.

Toronto has entered phase 2!! Our patio will be open on Wednesday and reservations can be booked through our website starting tomorrow! Our take out window will still be open. We soo look forward to seeing the sun shine on all of your faces! With that said, please be patient. Not just with us but with all the small businesses that are scambling to provide you with a modicum of normalcy. Dining will be different, businesses may be understaffed👩‍🍳, seating times will be shorter 🍽🏃🏾‍♀️ We may run out of things🤷🏽‍♀️, There will be inconvenient rules and most importantly we are human and mistakes will be made 🤦🏽‍♀️(its been a while 😜). Just know that we have missed you, we appreciate your support and we will do our absolute best to provide a safe space for people to gather and dine again. 🥂🍕🍝🍷🍸 Xo #FAmelia #FAmelia #cabbagetown #stickingaround #stilldelicious #missedyou
