Our Favorite Dog-Friendly Brooklyn Spots (Updated 2022)

September 20, 2019

Just because they’re our best friends doesn’t mean they’re the proprietor’s best friends too. But thankfully for dog lovers, there are a bunch of cool Brooklyn bars, restaurants and businesses that allow—and sometimes cater to—your four-legged friends. Here are some of our favorite dog-friendly Brooklyn spots, updated for 2022 in celebration of National Dog Month in August!

Stone Park Cafe — Park Slope

Dog-friendly patio? Check. Consistently delicious brunch, lunch and dinner options? Check. Sizable cocktail, wine and beer list? Check. In the heart of Park Slope, Stone Park Cafe is a beloved neighborhood gem and popular brunch spot focused on fresh, seasonal ingredients and made-from-scratch delights.

Stone Park Cafe
324 5th Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11215

Pig Beach — Gowanus

As the name suggests, Pig Beach is a pitmaster’s playground. Though not a beach, the lively vibe and dog-friendly patio lined with picnic benches and umbrellas does somewhat resemble a beachy environment. If your pooch salivates at the aroma of brisket and ribs, he or she is in luck, because here the air is thick with that fresh-from-the-smoker scent. Canine bonus if you allow your dog to eat table scraps or fallen mouthfuls of meat.

480 Union St
Brooklyn, NY 11231

Brouwerij Lane  — Greenpoint

If you love eclectic beer and cider selections as much as you love your Brooklyn dog, Brouwerij Lane is a must. Complete with a cozy taproom and outdoor patio, Brouwerij Lane offers cans, bottles and growler fills, as well as the option to purchase gift cards for your fellow dog-loving friends.

Brouwerij Lane
78 Greenpoint Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222

Ollie’s Ice Cream + Stuff  — Bushwick

At Ollie’s, they serve ice cream for dogs—and their humans. From pup cups to scoops, milkshakes, ice cream sandwiches and other sweet treats, there’s something for everyone. And on hot summer days, your fur baby is invited to take a dip in their dog pool.

Habana Outpost — Fort Greene

If your pup’s feeling festive, head to Habana Outpost for traditional Cuban and Mexican cuisine, upbeat music and a dog-friendly patio. The city’s first eco-eatery, Habana Outpost uses sugarcane utensils, rainwater to flush toilets and hosts a variety of eco-friendly events. Just note that it’s cash only.

Habana Outpost
757 Fulton St
Brooklyn, NY 11217

Sunshine Co. — Prospect Heights

If you award extra points to restaurants that are so dog-friendly (on the patio) they’re known to offer your pet a bowl of water, give Sunshine Co. a try. The cocktails are beautifully balanced, the food both photogenic and tasty, and the menu is full of small plates so you can try a little bit of everything.

Sunshine Co.
780 Washington Ave

Forrest Point — Bushwick

A wonderful brunch spot with a covered patio to accommodate Brooklyn dogs, Forrest Point offers a mix of unique and traditional libations—from Apple Cider Mimosas and Bloody Marys to beer, wine and shots—as well as a mouthwatering brunch and dinner menu of good eats. And you can even play a board game while you’re waiting for your food. Cool bonus: They also offer drag brunches.

Forrest Point

Casita of Brooklyn — Park Slope

A Latin and Greek inspired coffee shop that aims to give guests a sense of home, Casita of Brooklyn offers large coffee and tea menus, seasonal drinks, beer and wine, and a variety of scrumptious Latin and Greek pastries. And they welcome dogs!

Pier 69 Market — Bay Ridge

Pier 69 Market is a cute spot for grabbing a smoothie, coffee, tea, fresh juice or meal—not to mention, dogs are welcome. Their non-alcoholic beverage menu is quite extensive, the salads and sandwiches fresh, and the baked goods selection will satisfy any sugar craving. Did we mention they have soft serve?

Brooklynite Burgers — Williamsburg

Detour for an incredible homemade burger on your next dog walk with a stop at Brooklynite Burgers. They use fresh, high-quality ingredients, spend countless hours on food prep and infuse their Colombian culture into their dishes.

Bar Bruno — Carroll Gardens

Modeled after 1960s-era European and Mexican cafeterias, Bar Bruno serves up a mix between Mexican food and NY bistro classics, and welcomes dogs on their patio. Sip on a delicately garnished cocktail or a little something from the Michelada menu, snack on tater tots and plantains, or try some tacos. At one time they even had a dog menu! But we’re not sure if they still do…

More options…

For more dog-friendly spots, we’re fans of BringFido—which is super handy when traveling—or calling a restaurant or store before heading over.

When you venture into Manhattan and want a most unique, uber dog-centric experience, there’s always Boris & Horton. It’s part café, part store, part event space and dogs aren’t just allowed, they’re encouraged. And if you happen to be in Astoria, Chateau le Woof is a delightful pet market and cafe.
