Outdoor Dining in Traverse City

Table for two...on the patio please. Finding an outdoor dining spot around the Traverse City area is as easy as finding cherries. It's no surprise since the natural scenery and small-town architecture create the perfect settings for alfresco dining. 

Whether you're looking for your morning cup of coffee, your mid-day fuel or a long sit-down dinner, there are plenty of options to sit outdoors for your meals. Find a patio downtown, or in one of the neighboring port towns. Enjoy a meal with a waterfront view, or take your food to go for a picnic.  In addition, many of the area's wine tasting, spirits sampling or beer tours are now being offered outdoors.
