When it comes to getting a bite to eat or sitting down for a drink, there are plenty of places in Portland that won’t make you leave your dog at home. So forget about wolfing down your meal so you can get back and let Fido out — here are some restaurants + bars with dog-friendly outdoor spaces so you can sit back and relax with your best friend at your feet.
🐶 Tin Shed Garden Cafe, 1438 NE Alberta St.
“Treat your pooch to canine cuisine right off our menu!” This popular brunch spot wants you and your fur baby to leave with full bellies. Doggy dinners include chicken + sweet potatoes, with the option to add on dessert (bananas, peanut butter, and yogurt). If you buy a Tin Shed dog bandana, the proceeds will be donated to Street Dog Hero; come back with your dog wearing it and you’ll get 50% off a doggie dinner.
🐶 Victoria Bar, 4835 N. Albina Ave.
Fans of “The Princess Bride” will fall in love with this charming bar for its cocktails with names like “Inigo Montoya” + “R.O.U.S.” — your pup will love it for its “Pupper Supper” and outdoor patio, perfect for sunbathing on a warm day. Leave your dog at home? Inconceivable!
🐶 Screen Door, 2337 E. Burnside St. + 1131 NW Couch St.
Bring your pup to either location because they both have outdoor patios that are dog-friendly. Customers rave about the fried chicken + waffles, banana foster French toast, and breakfast corn dogs.
🐶 Breakside Brewery, 1570 NW 22nd Ave.
Dogs aren’t only welcome in the brewpub’s covered patio area — they’re encouraged. Staff will greet you with water for you + your pooch as you choose a beer from an extensive tap list, order a snack (the soft pretzels and burgers are great picks), and enjoy the fresh air.
🐶 Cellar DOG, 1620 SE Claybourne St. #106-A
This wine store and tasting room in Sellwood welcomes canine companions with arms wide open. With plenty of fresh water, chew toys + treats made by the shop’s owner, your dog will be busy for as long as you decide to stay. Plus, the shop stocks wines from makers focused on activism and donates to aid organizations and advocacy groups.
🐶 The Rambler, 4205 N. Mississippi Ave.
This converted 1920s bungalow has front + back patios, both of which are open to canine pals. Come for the all-day happy hour on Mondays, stay for the bocce ball court and fire pits.
🐶 Off The Griddle, 6526 SE Foster Rd.
Grab a picnic table on the dog-friendly outdoor patio at the sister restaurant to East Burnside’s A.N.D. Cafe. The menu features plant-based comfort food like housemade veggie burgers and vegan mac and cheese, as well as gluten-free options.
🐶 Leisure Public House, 8002 N. Lombard St.
Patios in front + back make this a great place to take pups, especially during summer when their humans can enjoy boozy popsicles.
🐶 Tamale Boy, 1764 NE Dekum St.
The pooch-friendly patio here is perfect for enjoying fresh tamales, but know that you’ll probably get some sad puppy eyes if you don’t share.
🐶 Cornell Farm Cafe, 8212 SW Barnes Rd.
Nestled in Portland’s West Hills, this farmhouse-turned-cafe has a covered, heated patio where you can enjoy seasonal, Northwest-inspired daily brunches with your dog in tow. There’s also a plant nursery on site, which serves as a great excuse for some post-meal shopping.
