Pops
660 W. Highway 66, Arcadia
pops66.com
928-7677

It’s
a local sweetheart, really. But did you know that, on top of the
trademark walls of sweet drinks adorning the diner inside, Pops has room
for about 50 in the outdoor seating space? It also has a full menu,
which makes it the perfect weekend treat. On weekends, Pops features
buffalo burgers.

Nonna’s Euro-American Ristorante and Bar
1 Mickey Mantle
nonnas.com
235-4410

If
you’d like the experience of Bricktown without thumping techno tunes,
check out Nonna’s second-floor patio. It’s a chance to soak up some sun
and enjoy the breeze. The full menu is served, but more important, try
one of the desserts: coconut cream pie, Italian cream cake or Avis’
chocolate cake.

Chelino’s
15 E. California
chelinosmexicanrestaurant.com
235-3533

Chelino’s gives you a choice in the metro with a gaggle of locations all serving the same delicious Tex-Mex menu. At
its Bricktown location, enjoy the food and a libation while on the
patio. There is a Wednesday-night special, and don’t forget about the
taco salad. For dessert, try a sopaipilla, apple burrito, churro or all
three.

The Wedge Pizzeria
230 N.E. First

270-0660

Tucked
in the corner of the Deep Deuce district is the second location of The
Wedge. The menu has all the favorites, but here, you’ll find some vegan
options. Bring in your own non-dairy cheese and the pizzeria will put it
on a pie for you. The two-level patio is open and covered, so it makes
those rainy spring days a special treat.

Flip’s Wine Bar & Trattoria
5801 N. Western
flipswinebar.com
843-1527

The
patio part of Flip’s makes you feel as if you’ve stepped into a little
street-side cafe in Italy. Enjoy the weather and a wine from its
extensive list or order from the menu, which is fully served outside. If
you’ve never tried the Italian nachos, start there. Take note of its
late-night menu, too, served until 1 a.m.

Hensley’s Top Shelf Grill
1551 Garth Brooks, Yukon
htsdining.com
265-4076

Enjoy
the patio here, which boasts enough seating for 30. The steaks, by
Sterling Silver Top Choice, are all hand-cut, and Hensley’s offers a nice
selection of seafood, plus chicken-fried steak and pork chops. Note
that its pies are all homemade; another good choice might be its
chocolate cake.

Picasso Cafe
3009 Paseo
picassosonpaseo.com
602-2002

Vegetarians,
you have your pick here, from a veggie burger to a “chicken-fried”
portobello mushroom with vegan soy gravy and fries. Don’t worry,
carnivores: You can get meat here, too. Opt for the lobster po’ boy or
steak pasta. On Sunday, enjoy a special brunch menu — along with mimosas
— all on its quaint patio.
