Taking your pet out for a romp in the dog park and want to catch some coffee or lunch? There are a few pet-friendly restaurants where you can sit on the patio with your pup and enjoy some post-dog park food. Your dog can people watch or nap and you can sit with some friends, read the paper, and have a nice day together out and about in your fair city.
Williams Coffee Pub allows pets to sit on the patio with their owners and is located at 245 Queens Quay West, it’s inside the Pet Discovery Centre and is open 7 days a week. They serve breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner. How about chicken pesto penne or eggs benedict? Or maybe a crepe and peanut butter smoothie? Williams is a franchise that strives to serve healthy food and has a large selection of drinks, snacks, and free wifi.
Thor Espresso Bar is at 35 Bathurst St, Unit 4 and is an independently owned espresso bar that serves top notch drinks and snacks. The owners love dogs and keep water available for your dog when you come to visit. Sit on the patio with your furry friend after running around Victoria Memorial Park and relax. They’re open everyday but close early on Sundays. Check out the great mural on the wall behind the counter when you visit!
Red Rocket Coffee is pet friendly and located at 154 Wellesley Street East. They have great coffee and a large outdoor patio where you can hang out with your pup. They even have home-made dog treats and provide water for your pup. Have a latte, mocha, or house coffee and read the paper or people watch with your best buddy.
The Longest Yard is located at 535 Mt. Pleasant Rd and is a great burger joint with an outdoor patio where you and your dog can sit. They have good food, good beer, and a great ambiance. They open everyday at 11am and serve lunch and dinner. Have a lamb burger or a classic beef burger. Or maybe you want something else like ribs or pizza. For dessert try the carrot cake and order a chocolate monkey!
