Outdoor dining - Historic Market Square, San Antonio, TX, US

Outdoor dining in the shade of the porch ceiling promotes the thermal comfort of the patrons. The shaded, fresh air is allowed to circulate, and there is distance between the diners and the heat of the kitchen.   In this example, the air circulation is further aided by the tall ceilings and ceiling fans; both of which serve to draw the hot air upward.
