6 Logan Square patios for sunny days

El Cid
2645 N. Kedzie Ave. 773-395-0505
Don’t be fooled by the small sidewalk cafe near the entrance of this Mexican eatery; the real al fresco action is on the spacious backyard patio, where margaritas and fish tacos are churned out into the night.

Letizia’s Fiore
2456 N. California Ave. 773-342-4400
This Italian bakery, cafe and wine bar beckons with a 90-seat sidewalk cafe along quiet Altgeld Street with a view of the restaurant’s rooftop vegetable garden.

Small Bar
2956 N. Albany Ave. 773-509-9888
For a craft brew with a side of fresh air, you can’t do much better than the brick-floored courtyard patio at this friendly tavern.

Logan Bar & Grill
2230 N. California Ave. 773-252-1110
This neighborhood hangout solidly supports the sports bar triumvirate of burgers, beer and TVs, but the standout feature is a sideyard patio with a covered atrium area and plenty of seating.

Marble
3281 W. Armitage Ave. 773-252-9652
Inside, this corner bar serves dirt-cheap snacks to regulars lounging in throwback vinyl booths. Outside, it has one of the prettiest patios in the neighborhood, thanks to shade-casting umbrellas and a wooden fence trimmed with built-in flower planters.

90 Miles Cuban Cafe
2540 W. Armitage Ave. 773-227-2822
At this mural-covered Logan Square spinoff of the Roscoe Village original, the triangular outdoor patio is nearly as big as the restaurant inside. Strings of lights, live Cuban music on Tuesday nights and BYOB sangria and mojitos (you bring the red wine or rum) make for quite the summer party.
