outdoor patios in toronto

There are so many outdoor patios around town it is hard to miss them. Some are on small quiet streets but many are on busy streets. You have to be prepared for the outdoor noises but I think it's all part of the charm. Today I sat out at Doria on Yonge and it was hard to believe we have yet to see April actually! But I loved it, enjoyed their famous latte and cherished the sunshine in its early stages of Spring. How lucky we are to have such options, especially at this time of year! Tell me about the patios in your part of town, or a part of town that you like to frequent. What makes them special?  For me, today was special because of the company I had, the warmth of the sun, the decor (of course I always look at that!), and even the chirping birds. Bliss!
