Kensington has a new rooftop hangout spot. Grab a seat on Free House’s newly opened patio to sip on one of the many Alberta beers and ciders on tap and eat tasty fare like the wild boar bacon flatbread or chicken sandwich. When you’re done eating, be sure to check out the new mural on the back of the building too.

Our Daily Brett moved its market and cafe into a larger space earlier this year, and now, it has a new patio to match. Running along the north side of the building, the patio is a lovely spot to tuck into a smoked trout bowl, a mezze plate or some Fogo Island shrimp toast.
