Video: Summer's Best patio in Sudbury goes to... readers vote The Laughing Buddha No. 1

Welcome back to's Summer's Best series, where we ask you, the readers, to help us find the best the Nickel City has to offer.

So far we've visited the best beach, best chip stand, best golf course, best splash pad and best chicken wing joint.

But nothing says summer like having a drink with some friends out on the patio. So last week, we asked our readers: Where is the best bar or restaurant patio in Greater Sudbury? 

Sudbury's patio scene has grown over the years, especially in the downtown core, but there's one patio in particular that has stood out amongst all the rest. 

Watch the video to see why The Laughing Buddha is Sudbury's best patio.

August 11-12, The Laughing Buddha and the Townehouse Tavern will host the 2017 Elgin Street Craft Beer Fest - so if you haven't checked out the patio at the Buddha, head downtown and experience it for yourself.

Coming up next week:

The Up Here Urban Art & Music Festival kicks off Aug. 18 so we want to know: Which Up Here mural is your favourite? Click here to cast your vote and make sure to check back Friday, Aug. 18, when we take a tour of all the murals downtown and crown the Summer's Best.
