Any dog-friendly restaurants in North Park/University Heights area?

Particularly for breakfast or lunch, even just a patio where the pooch could hang out and we could get a bite and a drink on our walks.

    I can't speak for the accuracy, but this link might help:

      Isn't there a health issue with dogs and restaurants. I've seen waiters stop and pet dogs and then go back to serving food. It grosses me out.

      Parkhouse definitely - and Bread and Cie a little farther afield (but I'm sure you already thought of that!)

        I can't leave the patio of Peet's (next door to Bread and Cie) without stopping to coo like a moron at somebody's dog. Both are great for people-watching and hanging out with the dogs.

        Rotie, thanks for starting this thread! I want to work on acclimating my little beast (well-behaved, just not used to restaurants) to restaurant patios in case we decide to take a road trip.

        Thanks everyone for the suggestions. We'll try them out!

          I've heard that you can eat on the patio at Urban Solace with your dog, if it is well behaved.

              Soltan Banoo has a dog friendly patio provided your dog is friendly...

              Bit of a walk but Hamilton's Tavern in South Park is incredibly dog friendly, almost too much so, and I love my dogs...

                yep, we take Gomez to Hamilton's after a run at the Grape St. dog park, but it can get crowded, and he's a dane, so....

              We have sat outside and had breakfast at The Gulfcoast Grille with our dog. He sat outside of the patio, attached to our table.

                I have sat with our dog at Caffe Calabria at the outside tables. Excellent coffee and tea. The pannini look good, but I have not tried them.

                  I've seen dogs on the patio at Terra in Uptown Center, especially at breakfast
