Biker hangouts with good food.

I'm at Scarborough and Pickering border. Anybody know some good places with great food and a place to hang with the biker croud? Spring is coming up fast and the bike is ready to go . Patios are probably best. Thanks.

    Anywhere along Kingston Road my friend as long as its east of the point where Eglinton turns into it.

        I don't know how the food is, but the Black Bull @ Queen and Peter St. is a favourite biker haunt. Great Patio in the summer.

            How about The Black Dog Pub. It seems to be recently re-born as a green destination...

              I love Black Dog and eat there frequently.

              Cool, that's near my work! Careful or you may give the people who own Booze Emporium some ideas on what to name the next place.

              I guess one of us should ask if the OP means motorcyclists or full patch.

        I don't know about the good food part but here's a list of biker-friendly restaurants and hang-outs in the Durham region and parts beyond.

        Besides a patio, tolerant proprietors and room for parking, it seems doughnuts and ice cream are an important criteria for biker-friendly establishments.

            I was thinking bicycles, close to the paved trail in Scarboro and Durham on the lakeshore.

              Glad you had a chuckle. But no, I mean true biker places.
