Patios in Halifax you need to go to this summer

Summertime in Halifax just doesn’t taste right without patio season. The city calls for outdoor brunches and come June, you won’t catch most of the HRM inside until the first frost hits.

Now that we can all safely enjoy the patios around town, isn’t it about time we enjoyed a Caesar in style? Each Halifax patio has their own way of pulling together Canada’s official cocktail, and from classic to eccentric, there’s something for the Caesar novice and expert alike. If Mott’s® Clamato® Caesar’s weren’t already the perfect summertime beverage, add in that splash of seaside patio and your taste buds won’t know what hit them. 

Who would you trust to whip up your first (or new favourite) Caesar? 

Remember when visiting your favourite patio to be kind to your servers, respect each other, and drink responsibly!
Birch & Anchor
Eat, drink, and relax by the ocean any day of the week. This patio is designed like your favourite cottage dock, only with more creative food and drink. Try their Kimchi Caesar, which is uniquely topped with Kimchi and house-made sesame rimmer! 

2 Durty Nelly’s
Take in historic downtown Halifax and all of its evening glory on this Irish patio. They’ll serve up your favourite hearty pub food with a spicy spin on the signature Caesar with dashes of Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce. With the food warming your belly, and the drink firing up your senses, this’ll be one hot patio night out!


Stubborn Goat Gastropub
You can enjoy Stubborn Goat on land or by the sea, but it’s only on land that you can try their classic Caesar. Why fix something that isn’t broken? Stubborn Goat keeps it simple with the basics of a celery salt rim, but you can always add on their spicy Caesar bean appetizer for the ultimate Caesar frenzy!

The Canteen on Portland

A Canadian patio brunch just wouldn’t be complete without a Caesar, and The Canteen’s is award-winning, much like their food. The recipe is top secret, but you can sense a hint of grainy Dijon and pickle juice! If those flavour tickle your fancy, take a risk and try the mystery and wonder of their Caesar.

The Mercantile Social
The Mercantile Social gets us dolled up for an elegant night on the patio, and they’ve got a fancy Caesar to match. No matter our getup for the evening, with this Caesar’s ensemble of bourbon, smoky jalapeno bacon hot sauce, and basil to garnish, this Caesar wins Best Dressed.
