Dog Friendly Patios in Toronto: Our Top Picks

At Tom&Sawyer, not only do we feed our pets like family, but we treat them like family, too! And that means letting them sleep on our bed (shhhh!), treating them to healthy, fresh food, and taking them with us wherever we go.

Now that the warmer weather is here, patios across the city have opened up, which means that summer festivities can begin. And to us, it only makes sense that after you visit the dog park, you hit up your favourite patio for a cold drink and bite to eat, too.

Since we’re not ones to leave our pups at home, here’s a list of our favourite dog friendly patios in Toronto that you can enjoy with your best four-legged pal.

Left Field Brewery 
Craft beer and baseball, yes please! Along with their team, this husband and wife duo brews baseball-inspired full-flavoured beers. Their head of security and customer relations is none other than the four-legged, floppy-eared Wrigley, so it’s no wonder that if your dog is welcome to join you for a pint, provided they’re well-behaved and on-leash (note - there’s no outdoor patio, but there is a great atmosphere!. What’s even better? Some of Tom&Sawyer’s treats are made from the leftover spent grains from Left Field, so when you buy a beer from here, you help make a treat for a dog, too. Located at 36 Wagstaff Drive.
