The Blind Dog Cafe feels like the living room of your most hipster friend. They have a small, dog-friendly patio and amazing breakfast sandwiches at $5 a pop. What’s not to love?

Red Rocks is known for their delicious pizza. In fact, they’ve been voted one of the top 10 pizza places in the D.C. area. They have a large dog-friendly patio where you can enjoy the company of your dog, the thin crust pizza, and some great people watching. Bonus, there is a popular dog park right across the street!

If you are as passionate about hummus as I am, you’ll love Cafe Ole. The menu offers you a choice of: Classic, Black Bean, Roasted Red Pepper Harissa, or Basil Pesto hummus. That is four delicious varieties of hummus ready for the taking. The menu is full of excellent traditional mediterranean fare. If you eat out on their dog friendly porch your waiter will bring a water bowl for your dog.

Tacos, arepas, cuban sandwiches, pan con lechon … if any of these words are making your mouth water, you and your dog must get yourselves to Chupacabra on H Street. The outside seating area is very dog-friendly. You can enjoy yummy Latin American fare and an inspired brunch on weekends.
Art and Soul serves up southern soul food for you and your dog. I recommend the mac & cheese. It’s served in a skillet, hot and bubbling, fresh from the oven. Though with this restaurant, you really can’t go wrong. This place even has a “pooch patio menu” which features dog beer, beef tips in sauce with rice, homemade dog treats, and more.
The Heights is an excellent spot for brunch. They have a pretty extensive bloody mary menu that is worth exploring and an amazing french toast ( it involves caramel pecan sauce). What else could you possibly need on a weekend afternoon? The Heights is also very vegetarian and vegan friendly. You and your dog will be seated on the dog friendly patio where your four legged friend will be served water from the traditional dog bowl.
