ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- Summer is finally here and with it, the perfect weather for dining alfresco.

We've rounded up a list of eateries offering outdoor spaces for sipping a frothy cappuccino, digging into a tangy lobster roll or simply soaking up the sun with a frosty goblet of Riesling. Got a favorite we missed? Tell us about it on our Facebook pages. In the meantime, enjoy the breeze with the following options.

Art Cafe, Nyack : Israeli favorites like borekas, shakshooka, hummus platters and more are on the menu at this coffee-driven cafe where the art of the pour is taken very seriously. The eatery sources its beans from Counter Culture Coffee, a North Carolina distributor that sells beans directly from farmers and cooperatives worldwide. You'll also find a variety of wines, beers and Prosecco cocktails, all of which seem to taste better sitting on the front patio under the shade of an umbrella. Dine Alfresco : 65 S. Broadway, Nyack, (845) 353-4230.

Jolie's Restaurant, New City: When you want to go somewhere where the menu pleases everyone -- and the outdoor space is pleasing -- head to Jolie's where you'll find everything from soft shell crabs with a watermelon salad, Chilean Seabass, or the eatery's new Buffalo chicken mac & cheese. Dine Alfresco: 4 New Valley Rd, New City, (845) 709-6733.

Hudson House of Nyack: This former village hall has a quaint back patio to dine on its New American fare as well as ample room in front for sidewalk dining. Dine Alfresco: 134 Main St, Nyack, (845) 353-1355.

Hudson Water Club, West Haverstraw: Panoramic river views give you that far away feeling, especially while listening to live music and sipping a refreshing margarita. The contemporary American menu with a nod towards seafood helps sweeten the deal. Just be warned: you may not want to leave. Dine Alfreso: 606 Beach Rd., West Haverstraw, (845) 271-4046.

Pier 701, Piermont: Picture perfect views of the Hudson River, an outdoor tiki bar, live local music during Sunday brunch, and a sandy beach are reasons enough to visit this outdoor favorite. Another one: the food. Lunch and dinner entrees are bistro-style with a Mediterranean accent, and are updated with the seasons. The biggest compliment, said Chef Denis Whitton, is when customers tell him a visit to his restaurant feels like they're on vacation. Dine Alfresco: 701 Piermont Ave., Piermont, (845) 848-2550.

Rhodes North Tavern, Sloatsburg: A small deck leads to a huge patio with outdoor bar and creek side seating, making this an ideal spot for a summer outing. The eatery is known for its burgers, bbq and seafood. Dine Alfresco : 40 Orange Turnpike, Sloatsburg, (845) 753-6438.

Sidewalk Bistro, Piermont: People watching couldn't be better at this Piermont favorite where you can opt to sit in front on the sidewalk or in the garden in back. Dine Alfresco: 482 Piermont Ave., Piermont, (845) 680-6460.

T.F. Noonan's, Pearl River: A heated outdoor patio and a kitchen that stays open until 3 a.m. are just two reasons to take a summer break at T.F. Noonan's. The eatery is also known for its oversized burgers and "hot" wings. Dine Alfresco: 16 E Central Ave, Pearl River, (845) 735-6427.

The Burger Loft, New City: If the back patio isn't enough to whet your whistle, the always fresh-ground burgers should be. The Loft also sports 12 eclectic craft beers on tap as well as creatively craft cocktails made with fresh-squeezed citrus, muddled berries, fresh ginger and basil. Dine Alfresco : 395 S Main St, New City, (845) 499-2409.
