Summer is here, so we’ve rounded up great places for brunch outside where dining with the dogs is welcome.


Dolores Park Café – Mission Dolores

Right across from the park, this sunny spot is always hopping with energy and good vibes. Serving breakfast, salads, sandwiches and soups, this is a great place to mingle and then run over to the park for a nap in the sun afterward!

Flippers – Hayes Valley

Delicious gourmet burgers and curly fries when you are in the mood for the good grease! The staff welcomes guests and their pooches on leash on the sunny patio. A little hidden treasure.

Bistro Yoffi – The Marina

Beautiful romantic patio tucked behind the restaurant! You would never know it was there! The staff lets you trot your well-behaved beasts through the bar and back to the patio. A great spot for wine and appetizers, too — and you don’t have to leave your dog at home!


The Scoop:

Dolores Park Café – 501 Dolores at 18th


Flippers – 482 Hayes Street – Between Gough and Octavia
