You don't have to go far to find a beautiful outdoor spot to relax and grab a drink or a bite to eat.  Hidden in the nooks and crannies of Toronto you will find some charming little patios.  Although they are located in the heart of the city they'll make you feel faraway with their European and exotic ambiance.  The next time you consider going to McDonald's for the billionth time, make the most of Toronto's short summer and dine at one of these delightful locales.
