Spring is the season for margaritas and beer on the patio, which puts you in a pretty good position at Toftrees Apartments. Your home isn’t far from some of the area’s top eateries, including a popular Mexican restaurant and local ale house. Here are three eateries with outdoor dining you should put on your springtime to-visit list.

1) Sowers Harvest Cafe
When you only have time to grab a quick cup of iced coffee, Sowers Harvest Cafe should be your go-to spot. It offers a full slate of iced java drinks for those warm spring days, from black coffee to chocolaty mochas. You can also cool off with an artisanal sofa, like the Raspberry Spritz or the Mojito Peach Cooler. Pair your refreshing sip with an omelet, panini, burger, or salad.

2) American Ale House
A frosty pint of beer is another good way to celebrate warmer weather, and you have ample options at American Ale House. Its taps pour beers from local Happy Valley Brewery, as well as staples such as Stella. Along with a food menu of burgers, fajitas, and fresh seafood, the cool drinks are the perfect springtime treat.

3) Mad Mex
Nothing says sunshine like a margarita, and Mad Mex’s bartenders make a mean one. Head to the colorful Mexican eatery for a banana-strawberry margarita and a trio of tacos, an overstuffed burrito, or one of the other freshly crafted, authentic dishes to be enjoyed outdoors.
