5 Dog-Friendly Restaurants on the East Side of Los Angeles
Your dog has gotten used to you spending tons of time with them at home over the last couple of years. Now that you're out and about more, why don't you take them with you for a meal out on the town? Living in Los Angeles, we're privileged to have outdoor dining weather pretty much all year long, which means there's no excuse not to take your pup to a restaurant with a dog-friendly patio.
Here are some of our favorite dog-friendly dining options on the east side of Los Angeles.
1. Lady Byrd CAFE
Located in Echo Park, this whimsical outdoor cafe is the perfect place to take a dog-mom for a Mother's Day meal. If your dog isn't very friendly but you don't want to leave them at home, Lady Byrd offers private greenhouses to dine in. There's also plenty of patio space where you can enjoy a full cocktail menu, wine, beer, classic brunch fare, and pasta.

2. Spoke Bicycle Cafe
Spoke is the perfect place to take your pooch on a leisurely weekend afternoon for brunch. Located on the LA River Bike Path in Frogtown, you can drive right to the cafe... but I'm sure your dog would prefer you park at the beginning of the path and take the walk along the river to get there. Spoke has all open-air seating, a full breakfast and lunch menu, plus wine and beer.
3050 North Coolidge Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90039
3. Alcove Cafe and Bakery
This restaurant is a classic mainstay in the Los Feliz neighborhood. Located inside a historic bungalow, Alcove also has a beautiful patio that your pup can lounge on while you enjoy a latte or a cocktail. They also have a great happy hour from 2PM-7PM with $8 wines by the glass, $5 draft beers, a $10 cocktail of the week, plus discounts on burgers, truffle fries, and more.
1929 Hillhurst Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90027
This Mediterranean eatery in Atwater Village is so dog-friendly, that they have their own "restaurant dog" named Piper who you can often find roaming around the patio. Momed is open for lunch, brunch, and dinner, with plenty of options for vegetarians...though, if your dog had it their way you would split the 16-ounce lamb shank tartine.
3245 Casitas Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90039
5. Casita del Campo
This iconic Mexican restaurant's kitschy pink exterior is hard to miss– if you're human, and not your color blind dog. Since the pandemic, Casita del Campo has opened up a huge outdoor dining area for you to sip on margaritas while your dog patiently waits at your feet. Be sure to visit the restaurant in May when they will be celebrating 60 years of business in the Silver Lake neighborhood.
