How many times do you have friends come from the other side and ask you ‘Where is a good patio in your hood?’ and leave you feeling pressured to make sure they have a good time on our side of the shore. It’s not the easiest question to answer, for a long time a solid patio in this neighbourhood was non-existent (did they think we didn’t like being outside? We live in North Van for f*cks sakes) but now, it seems establishments are starting to realize the worth of a wooden structure to host guests al fresco and we finally have a selection to choose from.

Now for the big question–which patio is truly the best? We decided to break it down by the following criteria:

  • Seating
  • Ambiance
  • Menu
  • Overall Good Time

Please make these decisions carefully:
