  1. Dog-friendly spots in North Seattle?

    This is really helpful, thanks! We’ll be visiting this summer with our Portuguese Water Dog, but we’ll be staying north of downtown in the University District. Besides that shopping mall (which we’ll definitely check out), are there any dog-friendly spots you’d recommend north of downtown, specifically around the university? Thanks!!!!

      Hi Kelly,

      Sure! Murphy’s Irish Pub is located just west of the U-District in Wallingford. They allow well-behaved dogs on leashes. Ravenna’s Duchess Tavern allows dogs on the patio, except on the busiest game days. For a great breakfast, check out Portage Bay Cafe on Roosevelt – they’ve got lots of patio seating where dogs are welcome. If your dog needs some play time, Lake City’s Dogwood fits the bill, no matter what the weather – it’s an indoor doggie playpark that serves beer! And if you’re just looking for a good cup of coffee, don’t miss Pinehurst’s Bark Espresso (which allows dogs inside) and Maple Leaf’s Cloud City Coffee (where they can join you on the patio).
