Awesome AND comfortable dog friendly restaurants in LA


We got a dog! That’s our girl Pita up there. (Of course she has a food-themed name.) That means we’re now constantly on the lookout for dog friendly restaurants in Los Angeles. Fortunately we just happen to live in a hotbed of wonderful restaurants that allow dogs. Here are our favorite places to dine with our pup that aren’t just a squished collection of chairs and tiny tables, in direct sunlight, outside of the actual restaurant.

Fratelli Cafe — Melrose

Coffee time with #Peezu, who got free treats for being such a good beast. πŸ™‚ #fratellicafe #coffee #dogfriendly

Fratelli is almost entirely outdoor seating, and so dog-friendly that they have organic dog treats and even a sweet restaurant dog that’s usually hanging out.

Local — Silverlake

This place is entirely outside, but entirely covered and massively dog-friendly.

Larchmont Bungalow — Larchmont

This place has MOSTLY outdoor seating. So you can definitely find a table for you and Fido.

Sycamore Kitchen — La Brea

With mostly outdoor seating, and Jonathan Gold list-worthy eats, Sycamore Kitchen is a dog and food-lover’s dream.

The Fat Dog — Fairfax & North Hollywood

So dog-friendly, dog is even in their name! But bring some sun screen, because the shady spots will probably be taken.

Swingers Diner — Beverly Blvd

There’s copious amounts of outdoor tables, and copious amounts of dogs actually sitting on the chairs at those outdoor tables.

Sandbox — Melrose

They have a HUGE covered outdoor space (that also has skeeball and Giant Jenga). They’ll also bring you water for your pup.

Wirsthaus — La Brea

You and your dog are welcome to enjoy Wirsthaus’ outdoor β€œBiergarten.” Extra points for taking a photo of you and your mutt like the one above!

Estrella — Sunset Blvd

This is probably the fanciest place on the list to bring your dog. Estrella’s outside patio wraps around the whole restaurant, is amazingly decorated, and well-behaved dog-friendly.

Home Restaurant — Los Feliz & Silver Lake

Look at the canines on that canine! HOMEdog of the day BUDDY loves HOME! #patiopooches #patiodining #dogfriendly la

The patios at BOTH Home Restaurants are freaking massive with some shady spots, so you’re sure to find a comfortable place to sit. Plus, from the looks of Home’s Instagram account, there are yummy treats for all!
