Patio season might just be the best time of year: you can relax with friends, soak up some rays and enjoy a drink (or three). The only challenge? Finding dog-friendly patios where your pooch can join you in the summer fun. Dog-friendly patios in Toronto aren’t always easy to come by, but fortunately O&B has locations spread out across the city where you and your furry friend are more than welcome. Our dog-friendly patios make for an immaculate summer combo: great views, delicious eats, refreshing drinks and amazing company — furry or otherwise.
