Coffee and Canines
February 21, 2020
There is something about a good cup of coffee, a walk with our favorite pup and wet kisses. When you can combine coffee and canines, magic happens. We love that so many coffee houses, restaurants and bars today are dog-friendly and dog-welcoming, making the experience all the more fabulous.
Traveling around the USA, you can find some really great coffee houses that are not only dog friendly, but dog welcoming. There are too many to name them all, but here are few of our favorites.

Onyx Coffee Labs – NW Arkansas – these coffee labs, as they are known, are located through NW Arkansas and while each one has its own style.

The Little Dog Coffee Shop – Brunswick, Maine – this one is on our bucket list, but we love their story and their belief that The Little Dog Shop is “a place with a big heart where everyone was welcome.” You can follow them on Instagram at Little Dog Coffee
Pour Coffee – Cleveland, Ohio – this coffee shop has a trendy, vibe with clean lines and cool decor. Located on the famous Euclid Avenue downtown it is a great way to warm up during the cold Cleveland winters or an iced coffee on your way to The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. While Pour Coffee is totally dog friendly, we checked and the Hall Of Fame is not, but it is still a really cool place to be if you have a safe haven for your 4 legged pup. Follow them on Instagram Pour Cleveland for great photos of people and pups.
The Grey Dog Cafe – New York City, New York – we loved this place, the name, the food and that everyone is welcome. Offering a little more than most coffee shops in the way of amazing fare, libations and more. We love the Chelsea location, but we are excited they have other locations in NYC. We love following the great photos on The Grey Dog Instagram.
Maryam’s Cafe – located in a trendy area of downtown Houston, this amazing cafe features Italian Coffee, teas, smoothies, people food and they even have a dog menu. The mix of vintage furniture, oversized table decor and friendly staff makes this place so much fun. Oh and they have amazing gluten free desserts and lots of good things to offer.
We also think Coffee and Canines is a great theme for a dog party. You can have it anytime, just add a few libations if you do one in the evening. You can also choose to feature a coffee that supports a cause close to your heart including rescuing animals, no kill shelters, spay and neuter and more. Here are some great coffees with a cause:
