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
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 “Biergarten.” 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
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!
