Willowdale Business Improvement Area (BIA) runs along Yonge Street from Hwy. 401 to just North of Finch Avenue. 

There will be a fantastic selection of CafeTO patios and outdoor dining experiences over the summer.  We have about 40 restaurants approved for CafeTO and more to come on board soon.  It will be one of the longest stretches of patios in Toronto.  There are also many popular destination eateries offering take-out.  New parklets will provide additional public seating.


Patio infrastructure is according to City of Toronto CafeTO guidelines.  Willowdale BIA has employed an experienced event management company, Hypitch, to provide extra support and coordination to the local businesses. 


100 flower boxes have been installed to beautify the patios and many of the Willowdale restaurants have additional plans to enhance their patio spaces.


We welcome everyone to come and enjoy a selection of Willowdale BIA’s CafeTO patios.
