Toronto’s best heated patios for brunch

Where to get your fix of waffles and eggs as the temps drop

Bubbles, fire pits, heated patios and personalized chalets are just some of the creative set-ups you can expect from Toronto’s outdoor brunch scene. With indoor dining still on pause, restaurants across the city have transformed their summer brunch patios into cosy winter dining spots. These are the best heated brunch patios in Toronto.


Against the Grain

Book your own heated bubble at Against the Grain and enjoy the famed brunches that this spot is known for. Tuck into a traditional breakfast with free-run eggs, peameal and home fries, or lean into the lunch side of brunch with the Tavern burger or loaded nachos. The restaurant’s bubbles book up quickly, so you’ll want to reserve a spot ahead of time.


Farmhouse Tavern

Featuring sheepskin blankets, fire pits and a rustic wooden shelter, Farmhouse Tavern‘s new outside barn looks like it’s been pulled straight from the pages of a home design magazine. Book your seat ahead of time to enjoy the restaurant’s seasonally-driven menu, which includes several different kinds of eggs benny.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, you’ll love Lapinou‘s brunch menu, which is a nod to French flavours with a modern twist. The menu features omelettes, crepes and smoked trout and the covered and cosy patio is perfect for milder winter days. Call ahead to bookĀ as the outside area is on the smaller side and fills up quickly.


Happy Coffee and Wine

Happy Coffee and Wine has created a welcoming back patio complete with heaters that will keep you warm while sipping coffee and munching on the cafe’s tasty treats. This heated brunch patio is first come, first served, so get there early to grab a seat.


The Marquee at Cabana

The Marquee at Cabana‘s splashy Saturday and Sunday brunch service features a menu curated by Oliver & Bonacini that includes buttermilk fried chicken with sourdough french toast and smoked bacon eggs benedict. The restaurant’s 5,400 square feet of tented and heated patio space offers prime views of the city to pair with your brunch.
