11 Heated Patios In Vancouver Where You Can Eat & Drink Without Freezing

Vancouver comes to life during patio season, and lucky for us it isn’t over just yet!

There’s nothing quite like a warm meal on a toasty patio to make us feel all the cozy, wintery vibes.

The patios come in different shapes and sizes — some have gorgeous views and others are more homey and intimate. We love them either way.

The weather might not be sunny all the time, but this winter’s forecast is looking very Christmassy, which is the perfect holiday patio weather.

Vancouver has a bunch of amazing restaurants that will make you drool, so we rounded up some with patios to visit this season.
