It’s been a long time coming but terraces in Montreal finally have their reopening date.

Regardless of if you call it a patio, a terrace, or a terrasse, Montreal is oozing with great options to soak up the great outdoors (and some nifty restaurants).

Considering we were cooped up for a few months, it’s very refreshing to grab some rays and get served outside.

From enjoying some refreshing cocktails, a nice glass of wine, or just soaking up the sun, here are some terraces in Montreal that you’ve got to check out.
