Austin has a vibrant patio culture. Thanks to year round warm weather and little rain, almost every restaurant seems to have al fresco dining space. So what makes a patio area particularly special? Well, plenty of shade helps since Austinites are still willing to sit outside long after the temperatures exceed 100 degrees. Of course a relaxed space serving great food, beer, and cocktails doesn't hurt either.
