Ebb and Flow Legacy, The Shops at Legacy
If the patio at Ebb and Flow is not the best patio in Plano, it is for sure the prettiest. With pink and white flowers cascading from the canopy overhead there is no place more picture perfect to enjoy, dinner, lunch, brunch or cocktails.
7300 Lone Star Dr Ste C-125 Plano | (972) 483-2266
Italian Village Plano, The Shops at Legacy

Katy Trail Ice House Outpost, Preston Park Village
Want to spend your Saturday under shady trees in a colorful lawn chair, your dog lounging at your side? You aren’t alone. Katy Trail Ice House Outpost’s Austin-style beer garden is sheltered from Park Boulevard by tall shrubs, creating a buzzing patio exclusively built for listening to live music, eating loaded queso and drinking Summer Beer (Blue Moon, Deep Eddy Lemon, lemonade and angel dust, probably). Trust us, it rocks.
4700 W. Park Blvd., Plano | 972.599.9000
Whiskey Cake, West Plano
Whiskey Cake has some of the best food around, and with summer heat on the way, the outdoor fire pit is off and the fans are on. Cloaked in shade, Whiskey Cake is the perfect place for something guava and rum-infused with a dash of honey, topped with a hibiscus flower. A true farm-to-table concept, a restaurant doesn’t get more seasonal than Whiskey Cake.
3601 Dallas Pkwy., Plano | 972.993.2253
Sixty Vines, West Plano
If it’s California you’re craving, Sixty Vines, located next door to Whiskey Cake, has a sinfully gorgeous patio as well as a greenhouse. Sixty Vines is a restaurant and wine bar with wine served at its best thanks to a state-of-the-art free-flow tap system. Enjoy fresh and healthy food such as crispy zucchini, and a phenomenal brunch menu.

Rusty Taco (“R Taco”), Central Plano
Ice-cold beer, no-frills street tacos garnished with lime—Rusty Taco’s relaxed atmosphere and taco obsession make for an awesome snack at a low, low price. There are 13 handmade street tacos, not including breakfast tacos which, by the way, are served all day. The margaritas are made with “fresh lime, cheap tequila and lots of it” and from the fried chicken taco to the roasted pork, it’s hard to resist ordering all 13.
8000 Coit Rd., Plano | 972.244.4047
First, let me say: I love tacos. Authentic or too-trendy-to-eat, I love them all. But there are certain rules that must be observed when making…

Urban Crust, Downtown Plano
Downtown Plano looks its best when viewed from above. At sunset, Urban Crust’s sleek rooftop bar, 32 Degrees, is the the best place to sample draft beers poured at a temperature of—you guessed it—32 degrees. DJs spin on the roof on Friday and Saturday nights, but on Wednesday, stop in for an Urban Amore pizza with fig preserves, prosciutto di Parma, goat cheese and arugula, and it will arrive accompanied with smooth Italian jazz.

Legacy Hall at Legacy West, Plano
While technically Legacy Food Hall (Legacy Hall) is part of Legacy West, it’s so epic it deserves its own listing.

Lakeside Market, West Plano
Lakeside Market has three intimate and date-worthy patios in one: Mi Cocina; Mignon, one of the most charming little French bistros you’ll ever see; and Taverna Rossa, home of truly epic pizza and beer. At all three, shade and fans keep the tables blessedly breezy. Occasionally, unintimidated ducks waddle through, nipping at dropped chips. And no one can resist the siren song of Mi Cocina’s Mambo Taxi on a hot Texas day.
Café Istanbul, The Shops at Legacy
The Shops at Legacy has a multitude of lighted and cocktail’d patios ideal for a warm June evening. But only one has belly dancing. Café Istanbul offers true Turkish cuisine, everything from tea to lamb shank, with classic checkered chairs and roses blooming up the stone-and-wood fence. A large old tree is the centerpiece of this quiet garden where it’s easy to enjoy a night of fine dining and people watching.

Señor Locos Tex Mex Ice House, East Plano
Gloriously noisy night and day, Señor Locos Tex Mex Ice House is a hidden gem with some of Plano’s best margaritas—frozen or on the rocks—and ultimate Mexican comfort food. Eye-popping chairs sit under Corona and Modelo umbrellas, a natural haven on Margarita Wednesday—20 ounce margs are only $4.
701 W Parker Rd, Plano | (214) 501-4258
Bavarian Grill, Plano
Wiener schnitzels, wursts, sauerkraut, spaetzle, apple strudel, beer—it all tastes better outdoors. Cozy and old-world, Bavarian Grill is at its best in the Biergarten, a colorful, shaded porch straight out of the German countryside. The staff dresses to the nines in lederhosen and you can drink in some German culture. And German beer.
221 W Parker Rd, Ste 527, Plano | (972) 881-0705
CRÚ Food & Wine Bar, Plano
Under signature purple umbrellas, CRÚ’s elegant combination of New American fare and fine wine makes it an enchanting date spot.
