Patio season is coming up, and we know you’d love to share this sunny and cheerful time with your doggo. We’ve selected 50 dog-friendly cafes, restaurants and breweries throughout Ontario (bet you didn’t even know there are THAT many). And some of them even have special dog menus, so your pooch won’t get jealous while you munch on your delicious meals.


1. Steam Whistle Brewery

This brewery is so famous, we would be surprised if you haven’t been there yet. Like, honestly, that’s kinda sus! Head out to downtown Toronto to sip on their refreshing premium craft beers while enjoying your dog’s company. 

Better yet, join Doggos at one of our socials at Steam Whistle! Grab your tickets for Toronto’s first fog-friendly comedy show Laugh You Tail Off, where aspiring comedians will roast all of us crazy dog parents. And make sure to follow our Instagram to get the next date of Babe, Barks and Beer event. It is a singles social for dog parents where you get to find a soulmate for yourself – and a playmate for your dog!

2. Hair of The Dog

A perfect place to enjoy classic pub food and beer on the patio with your dog by your side. This pub is right near the Allan Gardens dog park, so you can often meet other dog pawrents here!

3. The Morning After

Had a bit too much fun last night? The Morning After is a go-to place for your hangover brunch cravings. Make sure to enjoy their insane unicorn lattes and buttermilk pancakes. 

The Morning After is also just 10 minutes walk away from Kardia Fitness where we regularly host our dog-friendly yoga classes. So make sure to plan ahead for a perfect date with your pup! 

4. Enchanted Poutinerie

Poutine, but make it ✨fancy✨. At this North York location, you can try every kind of famous Quebec dish that comes to your mind: from Unicorn poutine with multicolored gravy to boogie lobster poutine. And don’t miss their Sangria Sundays with fruity sangria pitchers at 5$ off. Sure enough, our pup can chill with you on the patio.

5. Cafe23

A Queen West coffee bar with a secret garden patio that is extremely pretty & flowery. Enjoy the chic Parisienne atmosphere while sipping on perfect coffee (they get their beans from DeMello – one of the best roasters in town!). Order their award-winning butter tarts and snap some classy pics with your doggo.

6. Left Field Brewery 

Local’s favourite: a great brewery in Leslieville neighbourhood with bold, juicy and flavourful beers on tap. Although they only serve drinks, they don’t mind you bringing or ordering in your own food. Greenwood dog park is just minutes walk away. 

7. Lobster Burger

It doesn’t get more dog friendly than this: Lobster Burger Bar not only allows you to bring your pup along to the patio but also offers a special dog menu to keep those good boys and girls full and happy. Stop by to indulge in the freshest seafood and treat your dog to some fine dining!

8. Stackt

Toronto’s very own shipping container market has one of the best dog-friendly patios to check out! Make sure to stop by one the newest additions: Milky’s Coffee and Cloud Room, aesthetic heaven with artisan cold&hot coffees.

9. Goldstruck coffee 

You can tell people at this lovely Yorkville coffee shop love dogs – they even have a separate «Dog lovers» highlights section on their Instagram! And if you come with your pooch, they always have dog treats handy.  

10. Coffee Island

This coffeeshop on Bay Street is something we all crave in Toronto: a place to get your coffee without having to leash your dog outside. The staff is really friendly here and will offer your doggo a treat most of the times! We strongly recommend that you don’t miss out on their cold brews and iced – they are simply the best.
