The Ultimate Guide to Patio Season

The Ultimate Guide to Patio Season

It’s been a long winter, and we know you’re eager for patio season to begin. From that much-needed coffee in the morning to delicious Italian food and cocktails, Mount Pleasant Village has it all.

A Quick Bite to Eat 

  • At Origin 
  • Well & Better Coffee 
  • Thorbors Cafe
  • Starbucks 
  • Bread & Butter

Thanks to our new CafeTO patios, Mount Pleasant Village is saying hello to many new patio spaces around the neighbourhood, giving patrons an outdoor space to enjoy their morning coffee or mid-day pick me up. 

Whether you are planning to stop at Thorbors Cafe for a delicious baguette and an assortment of pastries; enjoy a cappuccino and fresh baked goods out on the patio at Well & Better Coffee; pop into At Origin to view their current art exhibit, and sit outside with a cup of their specialty coffee; try some award-winning schnitzel at Bread & Butter; or pick up your favourite drink at Starbucks, there is no better way to enjoy your treat than on one of our patios.
