32 outdoor heated patios to snuggle into this fall in Toronto

Nov 6 2020, 10:00 am

With indoor dining out of the picture for a bit, Toronto restaurants are keeping their patios open with the help of heaters to keep everyone warm as the cold season approaches.

Here’s a list of heated patios that you can enjoy across the city:

C’est What

With heaters out on the patio, C’est What is keeping guests warm and also offers “space blankets” if needed. You can also bring your own blanket if you need it. The restaurant is also installing wind barriers for that extra needed warmth. Reservations can be made on their website¬†for up to six people every day between 2:00 pm and 9:00 pm. For same day reservations, the restaurant asks that you call ahead.
