When we hit the road with Irie and Tiki, we always manage to find a local Starbucks somewhere on the road—and order a Puppuccino from the secret menu. Wherever you may roam, you’ll find more and more coffee shops that let you fetch your favorite cup of java while your dog naps at your feet on the patio. Here’s a look at 10 great places you and your dog can go to enjoy a steaming drink and catch up with some fellow dog lovers:
1. The Grey Dog Cafe, New York, New York
Named in honor of the owner’s canine companions, this coffee shop even offers souvenir mugs of their happy hounds at the cafe’s gift shop.
2. Dogtown Coffee, Santa Monica, California
After hanging 10 (or 20!) in the surf, hotdogging Moondoggies and their totally tubular tail-wagging chums can chill at this coffee house that celebrates sun, sand, and sea.
3. Top Dog Coffee Bar, Morro Bay, California
Man’s best friend can meet some new four-legged friends as pet parents sit at the tables outside in the California sun.
4. Irie Bean Coffee Bar, Austin, Texas
We’ve got to take our dog Irie to this dog-friendly coffee bar!
5. Mia’s Coffeehouse, Washington, DC
There may be a lot of talk about ‘elephants’ and ‘donkeys’ on Capitol Hill, but at Mia’s Coffeehouse dogs get the vote for everyone’s favorite ‘party animal.’ The cafe also offers tasty treats for patrons with paws.
6. Coffee Waves, Alameda, Texas
Take a break from the beach with a drink for you and your pup at this popular coffee shop, which also has a great location in Port Aransas (one of our favorite dog stops!)
7. Mozart’s Coffee Roasters, Austin, Texas
The news that Mozart’s Coffee Roasters is dog-friendly is music to the ears of pet parents! Dogs and their humans can drink in the beauty of Lake Austin while enjoying some toe-tapping (and tail-wagging!) tunes on the cafe’s outdoor deck.
8. Java Man Coffee House, Hermosa Beach, California
Our pals with paws enjoy a taste of the good life at the oldest coffee house in town, one that serves up complimentary dog biscuits at the counter.
9. Frothy Monkey, Nashville, Tennessee
Dogs will go ape for the Fido-friendly outdoor patio!
10. Jo’s Coffee, Austin, Texas
Rover-related fun is always percolating at Jo’s Coffee in Austin, Texas, a city which is consistently ranked one of the most Fido-friendly spots in the United States. Canines in costumes enjoy a constitutional along South Congress Avenue each year during Joe’s Coffee’s Easter Pet Parade.
