The Trolley Stop patio can be any number of things, depending on the day and time you visit. It is a hidden garden in the middle of the city where you can read a book over lunch, a chill place to catch up with friends, a romantic date spot, or a place to be seen by anyone who wants to look. Hungry? You can’t go wrong with the pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel roll, the Hippie Stacker or weekend brunch!

Our readers voted Little York’s patio the best in Dayton in 2017 (and No. 2 this time around) and for good reason. The spacious outdoor area features charming archways for you to sit beneath as you scarf down pizza, wings and burgers with your beer.

This is one of the chillest patios in the Gem City. Sit under an umbrella and order a pint of Guinness to go with that order of ooey-gooey delicious Pub Fries.
