good bar to spend an afternoon

the bar at white dog cafe is cramped, but the place is golden once you’ve got a seat. order one of the many beers on tap (many local favorites) and dine on extremely well prepared bar food. I’d go far as to say that the food is almost gourmet bar food.

either way, its a nice place to be.

try their homemade chips. not shabby at all.


you could tell this was homemade and not from the frozen section of costco. this is one of those burgers that you really have to squeeze hard, open wide, and pray that you can it into your mouth. if you’re lucky, the juicy goodness won’t get all over you.

Good Food

I came here several years ago with a large group. I had heard of the restaurant prior to coming here and was eager to dine here. I was impressed.

I had a lamb dish that was expertly prepared. As I recall, the salad I had was delicious!

This is a “trendy” type of place and I actually knew one of the waiters here. I like to try new places, so how frequently I would return I am not certain. I haven’t yet. But I would welcome the chance to do so if provided the opportunity.

Service was good. We had a dining room off the main area and we were cramped. It looked as though the rest of the restaurant was equally cozy.

For concious diners

All of White Dog's free range, local, organic foods are delicious! It's a small place that can get crowded at lunch and dinner times. Sitting outside is great when the weather is nice. The chicken quesadilla is my fav!

Contemporary American Private Parties Outdoor seating
  • The restaurant uses an eco-friendly state-of-the-art filtration system on its water and, hence bottles it in-house, in both still and fizzy forms.
  • A late-night happy hour runs every Monday through Saturday from 9pm until midnight.
  • The extensive array of eco-friendly workshops and events has been curtailed, but only slightly: there are still special dinners and live musical performances held regularly.
  • Although the dining room closes between lunch/brunch and dinner, and no later than 10 at night, the bar serves a grill menu beginning at 2:30pm and continuing until midnight (10pm on Sundays).
