Every so often, in the thick of a San Francisco summer, something incredible happens—it gets warm and sunny outside. Mother Nature has been beyond kind to us recently (knock on wood!), and you'd better believe we’re doing what we can to fully appreciate every fog-free, here-today, gone-tomorrow day.
At the top of our list when toastier temps hit: getting our nosh on in the great outdoors! That’s why we scoped out 14 of S.F.’s loveliest restaurant patios to dine alfresco all summer long. Trust, these beauts are sure to feed your appetite and your eyes. From a tucked-away hidden garden to a laid-back bar by the ballpark to a rooftop patio with skyline views, we found an ambiance for every mood. Take a look 'cuz when the weather’s perfecto, nothing beats grabbing a bite and drink and shooting the breeze (quite literally) in the open air.
