With lots of people, places to dine and things to do, there’s something new to sniff around every corner in Capitol Hill. When you and pup need a break from all the fun activities this “it” neighborhood has to offer, stop at one of these five dog-friendly patios in the neighborhood for a drink, a bite, or just a doggone good time.
Tucked in an inner courtyard away from the bustling streets of one of Seattle’s busiest neighborhoods, the patio at Optimism Brewing is mother puppin’ HEAVEN. The brewery is known for its wide variety and styles of beer on tap, and the circulating food truck on the twinkle-lit patio offers plenty of options for you and your hungry pack.
Harry’s Fine Foods
The crew at Harry’s Fine Foods knows that a covered patio in Seattle is worth more than all the bones in the treat jar. The perfect spot for brunch with your canine companions, Harry’s Fine Foods serves locally sourced, seasonal American food as well as handcrafted libations for the sophisticated pup whose taste is finer than a Golden Retriever’s coat.
La Cocina Oaxaqueña
Muy bone-ito! For that Mexican food craving you just have to scratch, La Cocina Oaxaqueña is the prime spot for patio views and amazing bites. Here, happy hour comes twice a day, Monday through Saturday–and the menu includes a half carafe of Sangria and nine types of tacos. Harder than deciding what to order? Ignoring those puppy eyes when they smolder you with laser guilt.
Capitol Hill has plenty of pawsome brunch options, but Tallulah’s takes the bone. The decor is not only hip and fresh in a bright, sun-filled space, but the patio is a spoonful of peanut butter kind of delight. Pup in for uniquely decadent cocktails and a couple rounds of complimentary water bowls–just don’t forget to share some of that eggs benny with your brunching bowwow bestie.
Joe Bar Cafe
If Fido is a total canine nightmare without his coffee, then Joe Bar Cafe has you covered. The cozy patio offers the perfect people-watching, beg-for-a-belly-scratch kind of location for all eager tail-waggers. The staff even offers ham treats to good doggos visiting the shop with their hoomans. You’ll stop in for the caffeine (and maybe a crepe or two), but it’s the dog-friendly vibe that’ll keep ya.
