Riverside and Leslieville BIAs are saying ‘Cheers’ to the 2022 Patio Season with ‘Queen East Eats’ including giveaways, food features, our 50+ location patio map, and more to welcome patrons to summer/fall al fresco dining experience – from June until early November!


Patio Season 2022 Riverside Leslieville Toronto

To mark the return of the City’s CafeTO program, the Riverside BIA  (Queen St E between Davies and Empire Avenues) and Leslieville BIA (Queen St E between Empire and Vancouver Avenues) have teamed up to launch ‘Queen East Eats’ – a unique, first-of-its-kind collaboration to promote the ‘support local’ experience and a patio season like no other on their shared main street. 

Through a series of exciting activations over summer and fall 2022, the program invites everyone to our east end neighbourhoods, just across the bridge from Toronto’s downtown. 

Highlights of Queen East Eats:

  • PATIO MAP: check out our handy guide to the 50+ outdoor patios in both BIAs, with links, photos and more
  • GIVEAWAYS: monthly giveaways to some of the east end’s most talked-about restaurants, bars, and cafes -stay tuned to our social media handles (below)!
  • FOOD FEATURES: Enjoy mouth-watering features of local food (and drink) that you can enjoy – on the patios! Thanks to our collaboration with Toronto Food Blog (@torontofoodblog on IG)
