One of the things I love on a hot summer day is to enjoy a cool beverage on one of the wonderful Edmonton outdoor patios. Summer season = patio season in my books. Whether it’s BBQ dinner on the patio in my back yard or finding a restaurant with a great patio, it’s a summer must for me.
There are all kinds of amazing options across the city with many situated downtown but living far from downtown I thought I’d share a few that I love away from the core.
If downtown is your thing then check out these two sites for some great options.
My Favourite Edmonton Outdoor Patios
These are just a few of the ones you might find me at this summer!
Original Joes – Rabbit Hill Road
With a south facing patio this is a great place to enjoy a cool beverage with some tasty snacks.
Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria – South Common
Authentic neapolitan pizza with the family on a nice, tucked away, patio. Did you know Edmonton was voted a one of the top pizza destinations in the world! It’s true. There are all kinds of great pizza places in town but this one has a wonderful patio.
Jagare Ridge Golf Club Patio
While I have not been here, my wife has and loves it. Amazing views that have you feeling you’ve left the city all while enjoying an amazing meal.
Crum Coffee Bar
A great locally owned spot for enjoying a latte or a cool beverage in the sunshine! I love this patio for business meetings or coaching sessions.
This quaint little cafe is situated in the French Quarter. It specializes in French-country fare. The patio is in a protected south facing courtyard. Great summer spot!
Great spot near the University of Alberta campus. Go for the cinnamon buns! Of course there is much more but that alone will make it worthwhile.
The Parlour Italian Kitchen and Bar
Okay one downtown place. It’s nicely hidden from the parking lot right next to it and has some amazing food. Pizza, again? I know. Kind of a favourite for me!
So what’s your favourite Edmonton outdoor patio?
Comment below with the ones you love, especially downtown, St. Albert, Sherwood Park and wherever else you love to hang out. I’d love to check out more amazing patios that our wonderful city has to offer.
Hey… did you know there is an app called “Patio Buzz”. It’s available for iPhone. Maybe android too. I just downloaded it. It uses your location to show Edmonton Outdoor Patios and looks like it’ll be a great thing to have when out this summer!
*** NOTE – for each of these patio restaurants and coffee shops be sure to check in advance to confirm current availability of take out and delivery versus in house or patio seating.
