For a classy covered patio experience, look no further than this North York institution. Opened in 1987, Auberge du Pommier is set in a pair of renovated woodcutters’ cottages dating back to the 19th century. Appropriate for its fine dining French menu, the restaurant’s decor evokes a romantic European countryside estate. The restaurant’s sheltered terrace features equally charming, French-inspired decor, accented with leafy plants, flowers and rustic stone. Heaters help to keep the temperature toasty on chilly evenings, while you make your way through the restaurant’s extensive wine list of more than 500 bottles.
