Cafe TO

CafeTO is a municipal project created by the City of Toronto to help restaurants and bars provide safe, outdoor patio spaces for patrons.

One of our main goals is to help businesses get the resources they need to ensure their summer patio is a success. In addition to resources used towards the beautification of the curb lane patios, the BIA will be able to help restaurants gain access to other resources they may need.

Joining CafeTO before the April 2, 2022 registration deadline means businesses will have access to curbside patios as early as May. Providing outdoor dining spaces for guests will increase customer traffic thereby increasing revenue.

Café operators are now eligible for a matching grant of up to $7,500 to cover 50% of the cost for permanent or reusable café site improvements on private or approved CaféTO patios. No work on the property should commence prior to written confirmation of the grant. Apply early as it is first-come-first-serve until June 30, 2022 or funds are exhausted.
