Booze-free patios 

Staying dry in the sun

You know the drill, the Chickenburger knows the grill. - SCOTT BLACKBURN

Chebucto Coffee
Under the trellis on Chebucto, a London Fog in hand, is the perfect place to meet your neighbours and their friendly dogs. Conveniently located where multiple buses converge, within sight of a basketball court (to gently remind you of your summer resolution to try group sports), this sorely needed west end coffee shop is a little haven of calm on busy Chebucto.6430 Chebucto Road, 404-5885

The Chickenburger
The sidewalk's sizzling and all you want to do is dunk an onion ring into some ice cream and eat it in the shade. We won't judge you and neither will the folks at the downtown location of The Chickenburger. Chicken Little provides for your ice cream cravings (watch for extended hours as it gets warmer) and The Chickenburger serves up burgers of the cheese, chicken and regular variety, fish 'n' chips, onion rings, et cetera. You know the drill, they know the grill. 1466 Queen Street

Just Us! Coffeehouse
The flagship house at the corner of Spring Garden Road and Carlton Street has a huge bottom floor, a lovely upstairs and, most notably for our purposes, a handful of tables on the very busy street outside. Heavily trafficked by students during the school year, in the summer it becomes a beacon for java lovers, evening walkers and commuters. 5896 Spring Garden Road, 423-0856

Sawadee Tea House
Down in the Granville Mall, where art students and marathon drinkers mingle, lies this lovely tea shop. It boasts a selection of leaves from all over the world, so pick your poison and snag one of the half-dozen seats out front. 1871 Granville Street, 422-4192

Second Cup
Grab an Icepresso or one of the new blended fruit drinks---green apple, hello---snag a seat in the nook between the cafe and the old TD Bank, and watch it all go by. 5425 Spring Garden Road, 429-0883

The Smiling Goat
This tiny sidewalk set is great for creeping gym-goers while you sip your high-end coffee. 1551 South Park Street, 446-3366

Steve-O-Reno's Cappuccino
A meeting spot for students, post-yoga gossipers and underemployed musicians alike. It's a fight for a seat on the modest patio, but great for savouring iced coffee. Mmmmm.1536 Brunswick Street, 429-3034
