Table With a View: Patios in the Great Canadian Wilderness

Let’s face it: given our recent slew of spectacular winters in Ontario, everyone wants to be outside in warm sunshine as much as they can this summer. And there’s no need to head inside for lunch or dinner in Ontario’s cottage country; instead you can enjoy your meal on one of the many superb outdoor patios located throughout the region. Set in amongst the gardens, dotted along main streets, or dockside and on the water, savour fresh air and fresh eats this summer in the Great Canadian Wilderness. Below is just a partial list of places to check out.
