MONCTON – Sunny days are not to be wasted in our part of the world. So, with Canada Day long weekend coming, and the prediction for at least a couple of hot days, get ready to enjoy some food and drinks under the sun.

Here are some of our favourite patios in Moncton you may want to check out:

Les Brumes du Coude

This “almost traditional” bistro serves French-inspired cuisine for lunch, dinner and Saturday brunches. The food, made by French-trained Chef Michel Savoie and his team, is also inspired by the local cultural heritage.

2nd Floor & The Rooftop at Dolma

If you already love the fusion Japanese cuisine and jazz nights at 2nd Floor at Dolma, in the summer, you can also enjoy the weather while eating and drinking there. Although this rooftop patio is not 100 per cent ready for the season, it’s open on certain times and days. Check the restaurant’s Facebook page for details.

Tide & Boar Gastropub

The Tide & Boar is a favourite of many for live music and drinks, including cocktails and craft brews. Since 2016, the restaurant has had its own brewery, too. The menu is constantly updated with dishes and beverages using seasonal, fresh and local ingredients. Plus, the wide patio is perfect for hanging out with friends.

The Old Triangle Irish Alehouse

The Moncton branch of this Irish alehouse has one of the most visible patios on Main St. Based on the belief of “food for the body, drink for the spirit and music for the soul,” the Old Triangle is a lively spot to hang out, eat, drink and dance.

Kanpai Izakaya

Entering this Japanese-Korean tavern is special – not only will you be greeted enthusiastically in Japanese, you can also try fusion dishes like teriyaki poutine and kimchi bulgogi poutine. In the summer, you can drink your sake and eat your sushi outdoors on a patio that opens up to the indoor seating.

Pump House Brewery

This brewpub is a popular spot in Moncton. Wood-fired pizza, massive burgers and house-brewed ales outside when the weather is nice – what more could you ask for?

Third Glass Wine Bar

Get dressed up and grab some cocktails, martinis and wine at the Third Glass’s patio, which opens in to the seating inside.

St. James Gate

Sometimes, walking into St. James Gate can feel like you’re in a British pub from the Harry Potter series. It’s that old meets new feel, combined with good food, drinks and live music that make it attractive. In the summer, customers can bring that outside to this patio facing Church St.
