10 Dog Friendly Coffee Shops in ATX
Coffee and Dogs, that pretty much sums up the start of my day. Happily, my sweet Panda is
always game for a quick stop for coffee before hitting the Hike and Bike trail. I like a bit of variety in my life, so we often choose a new spot to grab a scone and a latte. Here are a few of my favorite doggie friendly coffee spots around Austin!
1. Mozarts Coffee Roasters 3825 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, TX 78703
This well known coffee spot sports a huge outdoor deck right on the lake. In addition to the fantastic coffee roasted in house, this place holds a special place in my heart since my husband and I were engaged on the deck! Naturally, this place is one of my favorite morning stops and one that I know Panda will enjoy as well as we always make new puppy friends! Vegan options available.
2. Summermoon Coffee Shop (multiple locations)
3115 S 1st St #1b, Austin, TX 78704
One of a few coffee stops that not only has a dog friendly patio, but they don't seem to mind pups inside the cafe enjoying the company of their people. The cafe can get a little crowded, but the coffee is spectacular and always worth it. Plus, if you arrive before they sell out, you can find Tacodeli breakfast tacos on the menu! Vegan options available.
3. Counter Culture
