Which Byward Market Patio is Best?

Which Byward Market Patio is Best?


by: Brian Clarke

It seems patio season is here to stay this time (knock on wood).  Apart from the odd thunderstorm here and there, the Ottawa summer sun has been perfect lately for some good old-fashioned sitting on a patio with some apps and a few beverages.  But this leads to my question: who has the best patio in the Byward Market? I guess this depends on what each person thinks makes a good patio. Is it lots of sun? Good ambience? Or something else?

Here are some pictures of all the major patios in the Market. Which patio do you think is the best? There are obviously many left off the list, so feel free to critique my choices!
