The town of Edmonton is enjoying the end of summer while the sun’s heat isn’t as uncomfortable, but it still allows you to get your vitamin D each day. Below are five terrific patios in the Edmonton area that are perfect for getting some sun and enjoying a little social time with friends both old and new.
Ampersand 27 is located at the Varscona Hotel on Whyte Avenue. The patio extends out onto the sidewalk and is absolutely lovely.
Drop by to people watch or simply soak in some rays. While you are there enjoy a perfectly created cocktail or order some of the tantalizing meats and cheese dishes.
BLVD Bar & Kitchen
BLVD has bragging rights to the largest outdoor patio in downtown Edmonton. The beautiful centrepiece bar at any time on a sunny day can be seen filled with patrons.
Kelly’s Pub has staff that is friendly and welcoming. Patrons can watch the comings and goings of customers from the busy summer market.
Come in early and order from the breakfast menu. Order a filling steak and egg meal or the same with grilled tomatoes and other vegetables.
Craft Beer Market
Craft Beer Market’s size can be overwhelming. It is absolutely gorgeous. Travel to the top of the restaurant and you will find the prize; the fantastic rooftop patio.
Bring friends with you and sit out in the summer air and you will feel like the king or queen of the world. They serve a full menu atop the bar and a pared down version of cocktails.
The Riverside Bistro is located in the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Edmonton. The incredible bistro patio has picturesque views. It is truly breath-taking.
Looking for a warm weather dish that isn’t’ too heavy? Order the Mediterranean tostada. The pairing of flavours burst in your mouth with each bite. With each savoury bite, though, is also a feeling of freshness while eating a light summer meal.
Travel to downtown Edmonton during the warm weather season and take a day just to enjoy the gorgeous outdoor patios. It will be a summer to remember with good friends, good food, and beautiful summer weather. That’s for sure.
