Ten Patios to Park Yourself On for the Long Weekend

Rooftop. Sidewalk. Parklet. Courtyards. No matter where they are located, people flock to these outdoor spaces to bask in the sunshine and warm weather while enjoying their favourite eats and drinks!

We’ve put together a list of ten great patios that you should definitely try to visit – either over this first official long weekend of summer or one of the weekends to follow! Highlighting each of our municipalities, the following patios are our certified FeastON partners or they have been nominated earlier this year for our Best of Windsor Essex awards for Top Patio spots.  Make sure to also take a peek at our Patio Dining Guide for great outdoor options in every area and for all your food cravings!


From selfie walls at Spago to stunning street art along Maiden Lane, these insta-worthy spots are a great place to grab a picture with your pals!

Bring your pup along for the visit or enjoy the picturesque view of vineyards and lavender fields – these county patios are great spots to chill out.


With delicious craft beer and inventive food offerings, you will not be disappointed at these Kingsville gems!

From brunch to date-night, a spot on one of these patios will both start your day off right or wrap it up with a stunning sunset!

More than just good beer!  Grab a spot on one of the patios at our local craft breweries for your favourite pint and great fare!

For a full list of who’s serving what and where, make sure to check out our Patio Guide! Also don’t forget about some unique outdoor events with extended patio seating like Amherstburg Open Air Weekends, Via Italia Summer Streets and Kingsville Open Streets.
